The purpose of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
John Wesley and the early Methodists were particularly concerned about inviting people to experience God’s grace and to grow in their knowledge and love of God through disciplined Christian living. They placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as “practical divinity” has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.
Members of Simi Valley UMC covenant to support the work of the church within five important areas in the life of any church:
Our theology is rooted in knowing God’s will and purpose through the balance of Scripture, Reason, Tradition, and Experience.
