Mission Statement

We are commiteed to nothing less than the transformation of the world, starting with Olean and moving beyond. We are especially gifted and called in two areas: helping childen and youth grow to know, love, follow Jesus and intentionally seeking ways to build up other churches and ministries around us.

We are doing whatever it takes to grow fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ by creating a new culture of passion for God and people. Our goal is wholeness, authenticity, health, and growth, and we are wiling to risk and sacrifice for it. When we latch onto the unstoppable power of God, there are unlimited possibilities.

 God’s presence in the  sacraments is real, but it must be accepted by human faith if it is to transform human lives. The sacraments do not convey grace either magically or irrevocably, but they are    powerful channels through which God has chosen to make grace available to us. (UMC Book of Resolutions)

We celebrate HOLY COMMUNION as a church family the first Sunday of each month. All are   welcome at the Table of the Lord.

Persons wishing to be baptized or have their child(ren) baptized are asked to contact Pastor Suzanne at the church office to arrange a time for preparation.

    DISCIPLESHIP

    DENY ~ TAKE UP ~ FOLLOW

    Jesus said, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?"   ~Mark 8:34-36  more...


      We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only
      the gospel of God but our lives as well.
        
      ~ 1 Thessalonians 2:8

      Our goal is to build a community of students and adults committed to living ONE LIFE for Christ. The concept of ONE LIFE is based on 1 Thessalonians 2:8. In other words, the lives we live and the gospel of God we should be sharing need to be viewed as one thing-not as two separate entities. In fact, they should be seen as two forces that need to be in deep relationship with one other.
      The lessons of learning how to live One Life are best taught within a creative, healthy, Christ-centered, learning community. A creative, healthy, Christ-centered, learning community is made up of people actively responding to God’s love and understanding that each of us were c reated for relationships –RELATIONSHIPS ARE OUR PURPOSE. The Greatest Commandment (Matthew 22:3-40), or each community member’s responsibility, is to Love the Lord their God with all their heart and with all their soul and with all their mind and to love their neighbor as themselves. Individuals can only fulfill their responsibility, or their purpose, when they are responding to God’s love for them. A sense of community and living One Life begins with God’s love reaching down to humanity. We respond by letting God love us and then learning to love God with the fullness of our being, learning to see ourselves as God sees us, which allows us to love ourselves, and seeing our neighbors as God sees them, which allows us to love them.
