our mission and vision

New McKendree United Methodist Church’s mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Our vision for living out our mission is to be a welcoming community through which we grow together in our love of God, love for people, and in service to God’s people.

our methodist beliefs

The United Methodist Church is an 11-million strong global church that opens hearts, opens doors, and opens minds through active engagement with our world. John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living and putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.
