Our Vision Our greatest desire is to be a community of God's people who are Living the Love of Jesus. When striving to discern our way forward we ask ourselves the question: What would it mean for us in this situation to Live the Love of Jesus.
Our Mission Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Our programs for worship, study, serving, and sharing are all designed to be a part of the disciple-making process.
Our Strategy In order to make disciples of Jesus Christ, we have five main goals. We constantly strive to... 1. Proclaim the gospel, week, invite and welcome and gather persons into the body of Christ. 2. Help people grow unto Christlikeness by providing opportunities for study, encouragement, and fellowship. 3. Help people discover their spiritual gifts and take their place in service and ministry within the church. 4. Equip people to share their faith and provide opportunities for them to engage in mission and service to the community and world. 5. Make prayer and worship the center and heart of all that we do.
Our Values Several years ago we did a congregational survey asking people what they valued most about Sapulpa First UMC. The responses centered around five core values... 1. Membership care and support 2. Mission to our community and beyond 3. Worship and prayer ministries 4. Spiritual formation and growth 5. Fellowship and a welcoming spirit
We continue to find that these are the things that our members treasure most.
Our Commitments When one unites with us in professing membership, they affirm that they will be faithful to the church and support it through their.. 1. Prayers 2. Presence 3. Gifts 4. Service, and 5. Witness
The congregation also shares a pledge to each of our new members to encourage, care for, and support them in their journey unto Christlikeness.
Our Rules Historically, Methodists have been guided by three simple rules. As people longing to Live the Love of Jesus we strive to... 1. Do no harm 2. Do good 3. Stay in love with God
