Our Mission

We joyfully accept the mission of the United Methodist Church, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.


Our Vision

Paxton United Methodist Church exists to grow and share God’s love.


Pastor Gary introduces the vision statement during worship January 2024.

How do we measure success?

Worship will be successful when everyone can absorb and manifest the loving presence of God.
Learning and Discipleship will be successful when every person sees a way to take the next step on their discipleship path, and knows others are here to help.
Service will be successful when every individual is invited and involved in an area of service.
Generosity will be successful when all of us give all we can in response to God’s love.
Hospitality will be successful when all are welcomed, included, and connected to God’s love.
