Wooster United Methodist Church
We take seriously our obligation to bear a faithful witness to Jesus Christ in our homes and in our community. Jesus is the center of our church’s life and witness in Wooster, Ohio and throughout the world. We embrace our rich biblical and theological heritage as we walk as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. As a community of faith, Wooster United Methodist Church invites all to glorify God in an active Christian community.
We believe that God calls us to be a community of believers following the leadership of Jesus Christ. Therefore, what we do individually and as a church must be consistent with Christ’s example and teaching. God invites us to be partners in demonstrating love for all people.
We pray for the grace and guidance of the Holy Spirit to help us live as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.
United Methodists come in all sizes, shapes, colors, dispositions, outlooks and life stories, but share a unique history and faith perspective. Our members speak many languages and live in many countries.
No matter how or where they serve Jesus Christ, United Methodists do God’s work in a unique structure—referred to as “the connection.” This concept has been central to Methodism from its beginning. Connectionalism comes to life through our clergy appointment system, our mission and outreach, and through our collective giving. We live out our call to mission and ministry by engaging in ministry with the poor, combating diseases of poverty by improving health globally, creating new places for new people and renewing existing congregations, and developing principled Christian leaders. No one congregation can do all these ministries, but together—through the power of our connection—we can make a tremendous difference
