2026 Mission Statement and Vision

First UMC of Moorestown

Mission Statement: LOVE GOD ~ REACH PEOPLE ~ SERVE ALL

As a Spirit-filled faith community we:

  • LOVE GOD through faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, loving our neighbor, personal and corporate prayer, practice of spiritual disciplines, weekly worship, and the study of Scripture.
  • REACH PEOPLE by inviting and welcoming all God’s beautifully diverse people withradical hospitality: by working toward full inclusion of all as a Reconciling Community of Faith; by engaging in digital and in-person ministry initiatives, including a strategic focus on reaching families with children; and by creating intentional discipleship pathways that span all generations. In this way we invite, connect, equip, and unleash disciples of Jesus Christ.
  • SERVE ALL through Holy Spirit-breathed passionate ministries, mission, and outreach to a hurting and needy world by using our God-given gifts and resources (people, facilities and finances) to transform lives, families and communities in the name of Jesus Christ.

BY 2026 WE ARE RECOGNIZED BY THE COMMUNITY AS:

BEING RELEVANT:

  • Thriving Digital Ministry where people can take steps in faith 24/7 and over 50% of our engagement will be online reaching over 500 people
  • Updated facilities activated and modernized to be used for community engagement, ministry, and mission.
  • Over 1000 people will be taking steps in life/faith journey monthly, as they integrate life,
    faith, and relationships.

REACHING EVERY GENERATION:

  • Multigenerational as we are a place for our kids and grandkids.
  • Leadership developed and multiplied so every generation has a voice and impact.
  • We mirror our community.

EMBODYING RADICAL ACCEPTANCE:

  • Everyone is welcome, no exceptions, in our culture of love and grace.
  • A safe place for different conversations to model how to love those who are not like us.
  • A faith community who seeks justice, diversity, equity, inclusion, and holistic well-being
    for all.
