Like every church, our Mission is defined for us by Jesus himself in Matthew 28: 19-20; to "make disciples." Everything we do is to be geared toward meeting this commission. Therefore, our mission simply stated is:
To Make disciples of Jesus Christ.
How each church goes about making disciples, however, is unique to them;
this is their Vision.
At NUMC we are striving to make disciples of Jesus by becoming a church of:
Unqualified Acceptance - welcoming every person "as they are, or as they may become."
This means every-one. Regardless.
Resolute Grounding - promoting faith built upon the fullness of Scripture,
the witness of Tradition and the gift of Reason.
Tangible Empowerment - offering the tools needed to change one's life, to think for one's self, to impact one's world and to share God's grace.
