freeing the oppressed; being a compassionate presence,
and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel.

United Methodist Church Vision and Mission Statement
The United Methodist Church’s mission statement is “to make disciples of Jesus Christ
for the transformation of the world.” The statement reveals the basics that constitute UMC. They include:
1. Love of God and neighbor.
2. Transform the world
The first learning that UMC (United Methodist Church) emphasizes on is a major message that started with John Wesley. The Church indicates that the two are inextricable, and this is what it strives to share through its teachings and actions
in society. The indiscriminate approach towards people in need is one of the many ways that UMC satisfies the first part in its mission statement. To transform the world, UMC believes
in individual awareness and rediscovery through faith and prayers. The denomination emphasizes that the personal self is the basic unit of goodness, which can then be shared with others to change the world.
