Growing in God's Grace...Building Beloved Community #BecauseJesus
As we Grow in Grace and Build Beloved Community, we:
Offer abundant hospitality to everyone.
Recognize and honor the image of God in every human being. Seek to affirm, rather than eradicate, difference.
Blend faith and action to generate a commitment to defeating injustice, taking direct action against conditions like poverty, homelessness, and the denial of human rights.
Rely on scripture reading, prayer, and worship for inner strength.
One of them, a lawyer, asked [Jesus] a question to test him. "Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" He said to him, "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." - Matthew 22:35b-40
At Grace United Methodist Church, we seek in all things, to follow the teaching and example of Jesus. We do what we do as a community of faith because we hope, by God's grace, to love God, others, and ourselves as Jesus calls us to love.
