United Methodists insist that faith and good works belong together. What we believe must be
confirmed by what we do. Personal salvation must be expressed in ministry and mission in the
world. We believe that Christian doctrine and Christian ethics are inseparable, that faith
should inspire service. The integration of personal piety and social holiness has been a
hallmark of our tradition. We affirm the biblical precept that "faith by itself, if it has no works, is
dead" (James 2:17).
Mission and Service
Because of what God has done for us, we offer our lives back to God through a life of service.
As disciples, we become active participants in God’s activity in the world through mission and
service. Love of God is always linked to love of neighbor and to a passionate commitment to
seeking justice and renewal in the world.
Nurture and Mission of the Church
For John Wesley, there was no religion but social religion, no holiness but social holiness. In
other words, faith always includes a social dimension. One cannot be a solitary Christian. As
we grow in faith through our participation in the church community, we are also nourished and
equipped for mission and service to the world.
