Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you.Matthew 28:19-20
The Mission for the Church can be found in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) spoken by Jesus before his Ascension. To extend, it makes sense, the mission of every United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. However, exactly how does a church, the Body of Christ, do that and live into the Great Commission?
At Lake Waccamaw United Methodist Church we are asking this question and are in the process, over the course of 2019, of casting a new vision. This vision will align our ministries around Jesus call from Acts 1:8:
Rather, you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.Acts 1:8
