Mission & Core Values

HSUMC Mission Statement (why we exist)

The mission of HSUMC is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  This is based on the "Great Commission" found in Matthew 28:19-20 and the "Great Commandment" found in Matthew 22:37, 39.

Core Values (how we behave)

Biblical Foundation: We value studying and understanding Scripture through
prayer, worship, devotions, and small group studies because this transforms us to grow in our faith and knowledge of Christ.
Welcoming and Nurturing Community: We value being welcoming, friendly, loving and
caring within our congregation and to all people.
Lifelong Spiritual Formation: We value spiritual growth for all ages beginning by
teaching and modeling faith to our children.
Serving Others: We value an active and generous faith where we live the gospel in
ways that can be seen; build relationships with the people we serve and with each
other; and share the good news of Jesus Christ to our community, nation and
world.
