What is the Mission of United Methodism?

The mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  We, as a local church, help to provide the most significant arena for disciple making to occur.

What do United Methodists Believe?

We, along with millions of Christians through the ages, affirm that God is a Trinity:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  We believe that God became human in Jesus of Nazareth, and that his life, death, and resurrection demonstrate God’s love for us.  We believe that the Holy Spirit is God’s present activity in our lives, providing God’s leading, challenge, support and comfort.

We celebrate two Holy Sacraments that Christ himself participated in:  Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

We are a Connectional Church

We are part of the United Methodist Denomination.  We are a connectional church, meaning that we are connected to other United Methodist churches on many levels:  locally, as a conference (think state, roughly), nationally, and internationally.

Locally, we are part of the Missouri River District.  This district spans across south eastern Nebraska, with the district office in Omaha.

The Missouri River District is part of the Great Plains Conference, newly formed in 2014, which covers Nebraska and Kansas.

The South Central Jurisdiction covers the Southern Central part of the US, including the Great Plains Conference.

And finally, on a global level, we are part of the United Methodist General Conference:  all United Methodist Churches are part of this world-wide body of believers.
