What We Believe
Linden Methodist Church, a congregation of the Global Methodist Church
Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who worship passionately, love extravagantly, and witness boldly.
Our Vision is to join God in a journey of bringing new life, reconciliation, and the presence of Christ to all people, and to helping each person reflect the character of Christ.
The Global Methodist Church’s logo brings together in its three circles the one God – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – who alone we worship. The circles intersect at the center of the cross of Jesus Christ, the symbol of our deliverance from our slavery to sin and fear of death. The outer circumference of the rings represents the globe.
The Global Methodist Church believes people have a deep desire to know the Truth, and to devote themselves to it wholeheartedly.
From its inception, the Methodist movement embraced the importance and power of small groups where people engaged in accountable discipleship.
The Global Methodist Church is for all people who wish to join in a “methodical,” practical, and warmhearted pursuit of loving God and serving others as Jesus’ disciples in the world. Through the organization and published works of John and Charles Wesley, the Methodist movement’s founders, a distinctly Methodist articulation of the Christian faith and life was developed. Methodism placed particular emphasis on the universal work of grace, the new birth, and the fullness of salvation. The movement set as its mission: “to reform the nation, especially the church, and spread scriptural holiness over the land.”
So the future of Linden Methodist Church, a congregation of the Global Methodist Church, looks bright. The heritage of those who have gone before will be continued by those who follow as we bring people to know the love of Christ.
