The United Methodist Book of Discipline makes the purpose of the United Methodist Church clear. The purpose of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples. The Lindenwald United Methodist Church exists to make disciples. We phrase this with three words, Win, Equip, and Send. We believe that we are to win people to Jesus Christ, to equip them to be in ministry, and then to send them out in ministry to our community and world. more
You will read our Social Principles . . .
The United Methodist Church has a long history of concern for social justice. The Social Principles are a prayerful and thoughtful effort on the part of the United Methodist General Conference to speak to the human issues in the contemporary world from a sound biblical and theological foundation as historically demonstrated in United Methodist traditions. They are a call to faithfulness and are intended to be instructive and persuasive in the best of the prophetic spirit; however, they are not church law. The Social Principles are a call to all members of The United Methodist Church to a prayerful, studied dialogue of faith and practice. more
