Our Purpose & Passion

United Methodist Church's Mission statement is "To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world"

Our vision statement of our Methodist Church in Atlantic is building bridges of love with God, our community, and each other.

Principled, visionary and effective leaders help United Methodists grow in faith and in sharing God’s love with others.The church is focused on inviting and preparing people to become clergy and lead the church in world-transforming ministry.

The early Methodist movement grew through the efforts of laity who led small groups, taught Bible study and provided outreach ministry. Developing strong lay leaders is another important component of creating a church engaged in the work of making disciples.

You can also watch our service on Atlantic Cable Channel 121.2  or 18 every Sunday at 7:00 am, and the prior week's worship service Sunday & Tuesday at 2:30 P.M.

What is church? A place to go? A time on Sunday morning? We're looking to reclaim an identity of church--that being a community of people sharing God's love with the world. Check out our latest sermons!
