“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. ..If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. - John 15:5, 7-8 (NIV)
Turkey Valley United Methodist Church exists to honor God by making more disciples and changing lives for Jesus Christ:
That all may come to know Jesus as Savior;
To grow in all aspects of faith;
And to go into the world as witnesses of God’s Love.
Our desire as faithful disciples is to bear fruit to God’s Glory. But how do we do this? We desire for all to mature in faith through three steps
First, by knowing Jesus as their personal Savior (Save the Lost).
Secondly, by investing in opportunities for growth in all areas of our faith (Equip the Saved).
And finally, by going out into the world as witnesses of God’s Love (Sent the Equipped).
As we walk through these three steps of “Save the Lost...Equip the Saved...Send the Equipped”, we will make disciples and change lives for our Lord.
This may sound simplistic, but it requires commitment. We must abide in our Lord if we want to produce fruit that honors Him. We must keep to the path that leads to righteousness. We must dedicate ourselves as a body of believers in the process of discipleship and mission.
May God bless our endeavors to honor Him,
