Statement of Faith
"Follow me and I will make you fishers of men” Matthew 4:19
GATHER, GROW, GO is our discipleship initiative that is based on Matthew 4:19. In this scripture Jesus is calling Peter and Andrew as His first disciples. Jesus said, "Follow me and I will make you fishers of men…”. These words of Jesus provide a framework in which our church of New Brighton UMC can fulfill its mission “To use all of our God-given resources to make disciples of Jesus Christ”.
"Follow me…" We GATHER each week to become a part of the ministry of Jesus Christ in the world.
"...and I will make you…” We spend time learning through worship, studies, and fellowship together in order to GROW to become more like Jesus.
"...fishers of men” We GO into the world, proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus in order to join the Kingdom of God impacting the lives within our collective reach.
