of First United Methodist Church of Mount Dora


 PURPOSE (What we do):

Loving God, loving others.

Matthew 22:36-4036 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”  37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (NIV)

 

VISION (Our desired goal):

A passionate community that grows the faith of individuals, worships with purpose and loves extravagantly.

Acts 2:42, 4742 The believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the community, to their shared meals, and to their prayers. 47 They praised God and demonstrated God’s goodness to everyone. The Lord added daily to the community those who were being saved. (CEB)
