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.

Stance: The convictional stance of the congregation, theology, prejudices if any, spiritual life:

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.

    LITTLE FREE LIBRARIES: The Madison County High School Beta Club has undertaken a vital community service project, and we need your help! At the corner of Rutledge and Horry is a "Little Free Library." This is a worldwide movement that promotes literacy and the love of reading through its "Take a Book, Return a Book" philosophy. The Beta Club has already installed libraries in Greenville and in Madison and has two more to place in Lee and Pinetta. We could use your gently-used books for all genres and all reading levels for young children as well as adults. We also encourage you to "take a book" and enjoy new literature. There are over 25,000 Little Free Libraries in all 50 states and 70 countries (Katie and TJ Rutherford recently spotted one in Ireland!). In addition to books, we could also use monetary donations! These libraries and their "official charters" are expensive. Please see Susanne Griffin or call 869-9178 (or visit www.littlefreelibraries.org) for more information. Happy Reading!!!!
