OUR MISSION & BELIEFS
Our mission at St Andrew United Methodist Church in Panama City is to Connect People to Jesus for the transformation of the world. As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and Wesleyan theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.
We believe in God the Father, infinite in wisdom, power, and love, whose mercy is over all his works, and whose will is ever directed to his children’s good.
We believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of man, the gift of the Father’s unfailing grace, the ground of our hope, and the promise of our deliverance from sin and death.
We believe in the Holy Spirit as the divine presence in our lives, whereby we are kept in perpetual remembrance of the truth of Christ, and find strength and help in times of need.
We believe that this faith should manifest itself in the service of love as set forth in the example of our blessed Lord, to the end that the kingdom of God may come upon the earth.
