our mission, method and vision

Our Mission

To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world and our community.

Our Method

We will witness to Jesus Christ in the world and follow his teachings through acts of Compassion & Justice, Worship & Devotion under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
    Our Vision
Waynesville U.M.C. will be a center of spiritual transformation that Invites, Connects, Grows, and Sends persons into the world to fulfill God’s mission.


We will instill within ourselves an attitude of outward focus, communicating God’s love to all people through creative outreach programs that provide for the basic needs of human beings.


We will invite new people into our personal lives, by focusing on honest, personal relationships that model Jesus and his disciples. We will establish a program for mentorship that will fulfill the spiritual and relational needs of people at all stages of their life – children, youth, young adults and adults.


As disciples of Jesus Christ we will strive to visit our new and old neighbors, un-churched friends, and co-workers and make ourselves available as a way to create a connective community.


As a congregation we will engage Jesus through the Means of Grace, and by utilizing the Accountable Leadership Model, we will encourage everyone in the congregation to develop S.M.A.R.T. goals that will better equip them to practice the Means of Grace ( Passionate Worship, Risk Taking Mission and Service, Radical Hospitality, Intentional Faith Development, and Extravagant Generosity) into their daily lives.
