Honored as an Official Welcoming Congregation
Payne Springs United Methodist Church is a place where many of us feel at home. We are a church home to people from all backgrounds, and we rejoice in each new person who comes our way. We hope that your use of this website becomes a means of building our community as we recognize and know each other better. Warmth, care and genuineness are qualities that we value in this community of faith. We seek to relate to each other in ways that enable us to feel held and supported as we share our burdens. We pray for each other in all the times of illness, grief, sorrow, joy, and thanksgiving. We encourage each other to grow towards the maturity of the mind of Christ. We come together to worship and praise God. It is the spirit of the living God that we desire to know.
Our goal is to enable you to make faith in God a vital part of your everyday life. We create environments where worship is meaningful and contemporary, teaching from the Bible is relevant to life situations, friendships are significant, care is compassionately encouraging and prayer is practiced as continuing communication with God. Visitors say that they welcome our size as it provides lots of meaningful choice and an opportunity to “check things out” as they get acquainted. You may have noticed our motto on your Sunday Bulletin: “A Church That Cares”. This is our mission—it describes who we strive to be. We like to think it’s how you might describe us after you have an opportunity to know us better.
We try to fulfill our mission by:
- Being a Christ Centered community of believers who provide a place to nurture Christian living
- Encouraging our members to grow in Christian maturity by providing inspiration, knowledge, and support
- Spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ by reaching out with physical and spiritual support to those in need
This mission is an outgrowth of WHAT WE BELIEVE. We believe that God Is, that Jesus Christ is His only Son, who became a man and died for our sins and was raised again. We believe the Spirit of God dwells in His children and empowers us to live with joy and spiritual fullness in the Lord. We believe the Lord has important work for us to do here—telling others about His saving grace. Again, thank you for spending time with us. Whatever your age, or wherever you are on life’s journey, Payne Springs United Methodist Church is your place!
