WHO WE ARE

The Vision of Winchester First United Methodist Church is to be an unrelenting advocate for Christ to both the churched and unchurched.

WHAT WE DO (Our Mission)

Through our multi-generational ministries, we will develop disciples who know, love and serve Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
 
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT AND HOW WE ADDRESS A PERSON’S DEEPEST NEEDS
We believe every human being has a longing in their soul that only God can fill; everyone desires to know others and be known by others; everyone wants to know their purpose for living.  We, the church, are called by God to help all people find God, find community and find their mission.
 
OUR PROCESS-IN, UP, OUT
Invite people IN to a personal relationship with Jesus and His Church.
Build people UP in maturity as disciples of Christ.
Send people OUT to change the world in the name of Jesus

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
OUR BELIEFS
As United Methodists, we affirm the faith shared by all Christians, with particular emphasis on God’s grace and on Christian living.  Our theology is grounded in scripture and expressed through foundational documents of the United Methodist Church including Articles of Religion and the Confession of Faith (www.umc.org).
