We are a "Five Practices" Church.  In all that we do everyday, as individuals and as a congregation, we try to live out the "Five Practices of a Fruitful Congregation ":  Radical Hospitality, Passionate Worship, Intentional Faith Development, Risk Taking Mission and Service, and Extravagant Generosity.  The Five Practices for a Fruitful Congregation Model was designed by Bishop Robert Schnase.
The mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.   First United Methodist Church believes the local church provides the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs.   Jesus' words in Matthew 28:19-20 provide us with our mission:   "Go therefore 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 that I have commanded you."
