Mission Statement:

The purpose of Madison First United Methodist Church is to make
Disciples ofJesus Christ who make Disciples of Jesus Christ. We
exist to help people meet Jesus, know Jesus, and serve Jesus.

Vision Statement:
Madison First United Methodist Church fulfills the need for a safe place
to consider and respond to the Gospel Message. We insure that all those
we encounter experience the warm and helpful support they need as they
walk life's journey. We commit ourselves to living the Biblical model of
the church.


We stand on the following values:
We obey the Great Commandment by loving God first, then loving each other after the example of Christ's love for us. (Matthew 22: 37-39).

We fulfill the Great Commission as we make disciples, baptizing them and helping them grow in obedience to Christ. (Matthew 28: 19-20).

We are convinced that what matters to God also matters to us. We believe that no Church can stand still. Its relationship with God is a journey that must move forward or die. We follow the example of Jesus, serving people as we promote justice and fulfill their physical and spiritual needs. We stand firmly on our heritage as United Methodist which is grounded in the primacy of Scripture as informed by Christian tradition, enlivened in experience, and tested by reason. Christ centered worship, prayer, giving, and service represent natural responses to a meaningful relationship with our living Savior.


Our Nursery is available during our worship services

    PRAYER RALLY:  In his November newsletter, Franklin Graham of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Assoc. made the following statement. "It is time for the followers of Jesus Christ in this country to boldly stand against the spread of wickedness and degeneracy across the nation. This is why I plan to come to each of the 50 state capitals with the Decision America Tour next year to hold a prayer rally. I firmly believe God has given us the blueprint on how to bring healing to our nation through the examples of men of faith in the Old Testament. When Nehemiah prayed, he first confessed his sins to God, and then he asked God for mercy and favor for his country (Nehemiah 1: 4-11.). As Christians today, we need to do the same and confess our own personal sins to God." Franklin will be at the Old Capitol building in Tallahassee on January 12, 2016, leading a prayer rally from the front steps with those who attend. If you would like to go, mark your calendar, and look for further announcements in media outlets.  Tony Hughey
