To make the love of God in Christ known in Aberdeen and beyond through word and action
The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission. This is undertaken through: Worship, Learning & Caring, Service and Evangelism.
What is our vision?
We take seriously the words of Jesus Christ: 'Go and make disciples of all nations'. We acknowledge that while there are many things that are important to our church, our first responsibility is how we handle God's message of grace and call to commitment. Everything else that we do will flow from this.
praise | hope | care
God is not someone else's God. He is ours - not because we own Him, but because He owns us. We praise because we have received His mercy and grace. Our worship will use the best forms and content to declare the greatness of our God in our daily lives.
God is not our God alone. He is the world's - not just because He made it, but because He loves it and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus offers it life and light. This hope does not belong to us, it is God's message for our world, including the streets and suburbs of Aberdeen. We will bring the hope of Jesus Christ to our hopeless world, and will not be ashamed to use both actions and words.
God is not just interested in the world 'out there'. He is interested in us. We must take care of our hearts, souls, minds and bodies, for these are where the Kingdom of God takes root in our lives. We will provide opportunities for that care for all our members, offering spiritual food, practical support and personal prayer, both through groups and individuals.
