Our Foundation and Mission:
“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’” (Matthew 28:18-20)
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the ministry of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal to us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” (2 Corinthians 5:17-20)
These verses serve as the foundation to Mt Auburn UMC’s mission to “Make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” The Missions Team affirms Jesus’ call upon the church to serve as Jesus’ ambassadors, globally bearing witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ for the purpose of making disciples of all nations. To this end, the Missions’ Team supports ministries/missionaries that align with Jesus’ call to serve as his witnesses in Jerusalem (Johnson County), and in all Judea (Statewide) and Samaria (Nationally), and to the ends of the earth (Internationally).”
