St. Paul UMC
Sharing God’s love. Caring for all. Daring to act.
At St. Paul United Methodist Church, every member is a minister. We are called to do our best to recognize and take advantage of everyday opportunities to share our faith, to be examples of Christian living, and to embody the long-time United Methodist motto “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.”
For John Wesley, the founding father of Methodism, there was “no religion but social religion, no holiness but social holiness.” In other words, faith always includes a social or communal dimension. One cannot be a solitary Christian. As we grow in faith through our participation in the church community, we are also nourished and equipped for mission and service to the world.
The specific goals of Witness Ministry at St. Paul UMC are:
As disciples of Jesus Christ, our witness is an integrated part of everything we do and say. It is the prayer of the St. Paul Witness Ministry Team that we all make witness a part of our worship, our service, and our lives.
