Sharing God's Love and Acceptance with YOU!

Mission & Vision

The Mission

We share the mission of the United Methodist Church:    to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Here at FUMC Jacksboro, we carry out that mission by sharing God’s love and acceptance with You!

The Vision

At FUMC Jacksboro, we believe fostering relationships of grace builds the kingdom of God. We strive to embrace people where they are and connect them to God. We hope to offer care and compassion in addition to opportunities for spiritual growth. We also share God’s grace within our community and beyond through various opportunities for faithful service.

What We Believe

We share a conviction that God has mercy and love for all people; belief in a triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; faith in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ; celebration of the sacraments. In these and in many other ways, Methodism affirms the unity of all Christians in the Body of Christ.

United Methodists also have four main guidelines of belief that help us define and understand our faith:  scripture, tradition, reason,  and experience. They are interdependent and allow for variety in theology.

While Scripture is foundational in our faith, we also incorporate other resources as we grow in our understanding of grace and our ability to live in love, which include the writings of John Wesley, the Articles of Religion, the Confession of Faith, and The United Methodist 
Book of Discipline.
