LYNC: A Vision for The United Methodist Church


(From the Love Your Neighbor Coalition)

WE ARE United Methodists committed to the embodiment of God's love and justice within and through the people and mission of The United Methodist Church.  The core of our faith is found in Jesus’ response to the question “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” – we are to “love God with all our heart, soul (being) and mind” and to “love neighbor as self”(Matthew 22:36-40).  These hold ancient law, the prophets and the Gospel message together with our contemporary Book of Discipline and Book of Resolutions. To this end, OUR MISSION is to assure The United Methodist Church is fully open to the presence, love and grace of God offered to all the world.

Just as we are all interconnected and interdependent in the complexity of our relationships with God, humanity and all of creation, we recognize, acknowledge, and celebrate the ways all of the following concerns and hopes for our church are connected, interdependent and intersectional: Read the whole vision!
