Mission, Core Values, & Ministry Priorities Statement
To Continue God's Work
by Being and Making Disciples of Jesus Christ...Everywhere!
Mission is the reason for our being. It is the why behind everything we do. And, while we are not where we want to be yet, this is hopefully the guiding principle behind everything that we do here at Tell City First United Methodist Church. In Matthew’s gospel, the 28th chapter, Jesus tells His disciples, and by extension us, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Mt 28:18-20 NLT). These words are the source behind our Mission which is, to continue God’s work by being and making disciples of Jesus Christ... Everywhere! It is our hope that everything we do here will move us towards this mission!
Core Values and Ministry Priorities
As we seek to live out the Mission “To Continue God’s work by Being and Making Disciples of Jesus Christ... Everywhere!” We have learned that things change. And, while change does not always have to be a bad thing, there should always be some things that are so vital to who an
organization is that they never change. To this end, we have found that we have 4 core values and 4 priorities here at Tell City First United Methodist Church.
