Why do we exist as a church?

Vision Statement: 
Reach people far from God.

How do we fulfill our vision?

Mission Statement: 
Igniting faith through service.

How are we organized to fulfill our mission and vision?

We invite our congregation to gather for worship and other special events to celebrate God’s goodness.
We encourage our congregation to get connected  relationally to others in our church through small groups. These groups provide opportunities to grow spiritually through Bible study, prayer, service, and accountability.
We empower our congregation to make a positive contribution to our community and world by helping them discover their God-given passion and unique blend of spiritual gifts. We then seek to provide opportunities for our congregation to serve and influence others to find and follow Jesus.
Our strategy of Gather, Grow, and Go is meant to move people toward becoming a Christ-like influencer. A Christ-like influencer  surrenders continually, love and serves extravagantly, invests relationally, gives generously and engages with God daily.

What foundational truths do we hold sacred?

Bedrock Beliefs:

God is The Creator.
God loves us no matter what; He will never give up on us.
You matter! That’s why Jesus came.
Through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, God gives us gifts to change the world in Jesus’ name.
Jesus came so we could have a purpose-filled life.
Jesus’ resurrection gives us joy for today, hope for tomorrow and the promise of eternal life.
Our Biblical framework: 

A great commitment to the Great Commandment and Great Commission with Great Compassion will build a GREAT CHURCH!

The Great Commandment: Matthew 22:36-40
The Great Commission: Matthew 28:16-20
The Great Compassion: Matthew 25:34-40

A journey begins with a single step… but it’s every step you take after it that determines where you go.

We were designed to grow. We are to become, in every nuance of our lives, a beacon of Christ’s image. It is a lifelong process of getting closer to Christ so we can then take Him out into the world.

For all walks of life, at every stage of your spiritual life is a class, a study or a group that can take you to the next step in your journey. Find a class that fits your season of life and get growing, going and doing.

Join us for a Drive-in Sunrise Service at Freedom Grove Park in the County Buildings (South point) parking lot this Easter!  The service will begin at 8am.  You can tune your car radio to the FM station to hear the service and worship with us or, weather permitting, bring a chair and sit outside.
If 8 am is too early, you can always attend our 10:30am service at Urbana UMC, 238 N. Main St. Please enter through the front doors on Main St. and visit our welcome center.
Reserve a pre-boxed breakfast for the 8am Drive-In Service (breakfast sandwich or baked goods) by texting “BREAKFAST” to 937-563-4593.  Breakfast must be ordered by Wednesday,  March 27th.
