Mission, Purpose, Vision, and Journey

Making Disciples and Changing the World

The Mission

The mission of United Methodist Church of Livonia is the same mission Jesus gave his followers:  "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

Purpose, Vision, and Journey

Our Purpose is to build a community of Christ Followers where all people regardless of where they are in their faith journey are welcome and grow in love of God and love of neighbor.  

Our Vision is to be used by God to make disciples and change the world

Our Journey is to Know God, Grow in love of God and our neighbor, and Serve as Christ’s hands and feet in the community.

A disciple is a grace-filled Christ Follower who puts faith into action.

We believe it is the role of the church to grow disciples  so that they will be people who speak for Jesus in the world today.

We equip disciples to share Christ with the world.

Follow Jesus into the waters of baptism.

The Bible says that all professing Christians should be baptized (Matthew 28:18-20).  

In Baptism we are welcomed and incorporated into the community of faith , and receive the promise of the Spirit that re-creates and transforms us. Whether you've been following Jesus for a long time and never got baptized or are a new Christian, we would be honored to baptize you!
