Who We Are
This will tell you a bit about what we believe God expects of us...

Jesus gave us a clear direction for the work of ministry...
Matthew 28:18-20 (NLT)
18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

We take this passage to mean...

One. We go.  We don’t wait for people to come to us.
We will build relationships, through the leading of the Holy Spirit, with those who do not yet know Jesus. This may happen in the marketplace, in our neighborhoods, in our social gatherings, or even in our homes.
We will give our day to God for Him to use us in His work as He sees fit.

Two. We lead people to the cross of Jesus.
We understand that lost people need Jesus as their Savior/Forgiver.
We will mentor them in the basic spiritual disciplines to sustain new life and to grow in it.
We encourage the daily reading of scripture along with daily prayer.

Three. We baptize them, giving them a local church family in which to belong.
We believe it is important for new believers to identify with Jesus in the act of baptism.

Four. We teach them about God’s expectations for members of His family.
We offer 2 ways for people to learn how to live a new life: one-on-one mentoring/discipleship, or discipleship in a small group

Five. We gather collectively and in small groups.
We regularly attend Sunday morning worship service
It’s in a small group that we learn scripture and how to apply it to our life, we learn how to pray for others and have them pray for us, and we give and receive encouragement.

Six. We serve with our gifts, abilities, personality, passion, and experiences.
Those attending Holiday Free Methodist Church agree to have God use them in the type of ministry that fits how God has wired them and how He wants to use them at this stage in their life.
