FAITH and the ENVIRONMENT
“Faith and the Environment” Ministry here at Faith United is an expression of our congregations' need to put into action the gratitude we feel for for this magnificent earth. The divine nature of our Creator bestows on all that is created as a sacred legacy. Collectively we commit our selves to the task of under-standing and preserving this legacy.
“People of Faith caring for our World “
Social Principals of the United Methodist Church
The United Methodist Church believes 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. The church helps us think and act out a faith perspective, not just responding to all the other 'mind-makers-up' that exist in our society...
Taking an active stance in society is nothing new for followers of John Wesley. He set the example for us to combine personal and social piety. Ever since predecessor churches to United Methodism flourished in the United States, we have been known as a denomination involved with people's lives, with political and social struggles, having local to international mission implications. Such involvement is an expression of the personal change we experience in our baptism and conversion."
