What Is The Evangelical Methodist Church Denomination?
Reaching Forward The Evangelical Methodist Church is a denomination of progressive churches that are prepared for the ever-changing present and the much-anticipated future. Building on a sound Biblical base, with the help of God, we are ready to respond to the challenges of the 21st Century.
To keep the heart of God’s message clear and the church’s mission strong and vital, we continually center on four ”value” areas -people, community, faith, and outreach.
We invite you to join us in sharing these values in your neighborhood.
People Centered ”Carry each other’s burden, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2 NIV) The goal of the Evangelical Methodist Church is to help people. The message of love in Jesus Christ translates into practical terms, such as acceptance, appreciation, assistance, inspiration, instruction, and more. Each Evangelical Methodist congregation is committed to being accountable to the people it serves.
We invite you to participate in EMC activities in your neighborhood. You will find opportunities to express your care for others and to receive caring from others.
Community Focused Families grow up together in communities. The Evangelical Methodist Church works to make the community a better place to live by developing programs that meet people’s needs where they are.
Each community is made up of individuals of all ages. We are working to give our children the values they need. We provide activities for the teenagers, guidance and resources for parents, meaningful involvement for senior citizens. Each age group is actually a life style with unique interests and needs.
Faith Based The Evangelical Methodist Churches share the good news of God’s Son, Jesus Christ from the rich Wesleyan perspective.
Simply stated, we believe that God in His love has a wonderful plan for every person’s life and that real living begins when we commit ourselves by faith as true disciples of Christ. Jesus declared that he came that we might have life, and have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)
Outreach Minded We are serious about the task of bringing men and women to Jesus Christ and then discipling them to enable them to bring others. The local church is the cutting edge for the Gospel outreach. This is the front-line where lives are influenced for God and growth in His Kingdom takes place. While we are involved in many challenging activities, we still assert that the local congregation eclipses radio, television, conferences, retreats and seminars in its lasting effect upon the lives of people in a community. Be prepared to find the Evangelical Methodist Church in your area to be enthusiastically outreach minded.
