Mission & Vision

Go therefore and make disciples...

LOVE

The greatest of these is love. -1 Corinthians 13:13 
 
Methodist center their lives around a loving relationship with Jesus Christ, following his great command to love God and neighbor.  A global church, Methodism’s idea of neighbor is wide indeed.  At Morton UMC, we engage in acts of love through mission and service, in devotions of love through worship and study, and in disciplines of love through small groups and fellowship.  At Morton United Methodist Church, we know that the greatest of these is love.

GROW

The seed fell on good soil where it produced a crop. -Matthew 13:8
Methodists believe that God plants a seed for harvest in every human heart.  Our job is to prepare and till good soil for that seed to grow into ripe fruit.  At Morton UMC, we continually seek growth in our discipleship, organizing our entire church life around the cultivation of good soil to produce Christ’s crop.

WITNESS

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations. -Matthew 28:19
Methodists serve as a live-wire conduit for the power of the Holy Spirit to change lives.  Our lives stand as a witness to that power by embodying the good news of Jesus Christ everywhere we go.  At Morton UMC, we do not believe Christianity occurs behind the walls of a building on Sunday.  No. We witness to the world through acts of justice, mercy, piety, and love until the world is transformed into kingdom ground wherever the people of God stand together. We make disciples of all the nations.

The Mission

The mission of Morton United Methodist Church is the same mission Jesus gave his followers: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. 

The Vision

The vision of Morton United Methodist Church is create a community of authentic believers and to witness a city transformed by the life changing reality of the gospel, as people come to know Jesus as their lord and savior.
