Our Purpose

(why we are here)

We believe each person, as part of God’s good creation,
has been created with a *purpose to enjoy God’s presence fully;
we offer ourselves in service to one another
that each person may recognize this and live into it.

*the Imago Dei; the Image of God

“Jesus said,
‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul,
and with all your strength,
and with all your mind;
and love your neighbor as yourself!'”

-Luke 10:27

Our Vision

(results of our mission)

The People of Port Edwards United Methodist Church
foresee our local community and the world

“Faith makes us sure of what we hope for and gives us proof of what we cannot see! 
Because of our faith, we know that the world was made at God’s command;
what can be seen now was made out of what cannot be seen!”
