Learn Great Things About God - Do Great
Things With God
Welcome to Towson United Methodist
All members of Christ's
universal church are called to share in the ministry which is committed to
the whole church of Jesus Christ. Therefore, each member of the
United Methodist Church is to be a servant of Christ on mission in the
local and worldwide community. This servanthood is performed in
family life, daily work, recreation and social activities, responsible
citizenship, the stewardship of property and accumulated resources, the
issues of corporate life, and all attitudes toward other persons.
Participation in disciplined groups such as covenant discipleship groups
or class meetings is an expected part of personal mission involvement.
Each member is called upon to be a witness for Christ in the world, a
light and leaven in society, and a reconciler in a culture of conflict.
Each member is to identify with the agony and suffering of the world and
to radiate and exemplify the Christ of hope. The standards of
attitude and conduct set forth in the
Social Principles shall be considered as an essential resource for
guiding each member of the Church in being a servant of Christ on mission.
