Our Vision


Our vision statement at Evangelical United Methodist Church is to be “A Grace-Centered, Disciple Developing Community.”

The mission of The United Methodist Church (UMC) is “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”

These statements reveal the basics that constitute the UMC which include the love of God and neighbor and the transformation of the world.

Evangelical United Methodist Church (EUM) of Huntington, Indiana is a church family committed to Jesus Christ, committed to reaching others by proclaiming the Gospel, committed to serving the needs of our community and beyond in Christ’s name, and committed to nurturing the growing faith of children, youth, and adults.

Over the past 30 years, EUM has continued to grow and change. Our beliefs are rather simple, yet complex. We believe in God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe in the Trinity.

 

Our Beliefs


baptism

Baptism

We also believe that in baptism God initiates a covenant with us, announced with the words, The Holy Spirit works within you, that being born through water and the Spirit, you may be a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ. Baptism represents believers’ repentance and forgiveness of sins. It also signifies a new birth and the beginning of a person’s Christian discipleship. People of all ages can be baptized in The United Methodist Church.
communion

Communion

The Lord’s Supper is a holy meal of bread and juice that symbolizes the body and blood of Christ. We practice “open communion,” welcoming all who love Christ, repent of their sin, and seek to live in peace with one another. We believe that the Communion Table is the Lord’s Table and you do not need to be a member of our church or any other church to receive the sacrament of communion.
peace

Social Justice

We believe God’s love for the world is an active and engaged love, a love seeking justice and liberty. We cannot just be observers. So we care enough about people’s lives to risk interpreting God’s love, to take a stand, to call each of us into a response, no matter how controversial or complex. We believe the Gospel calls us to the work of social justice as stated in our social principles (https://www.umcjustice.org/documents/124).
