United Methodist Discipleship Ministries bases its life and work on the scriptural mandates contained in the five following biblical texts:

  • The Great Commandment - Matthew 22:37-39 - Love of God and neighbor underscores all of our activity.
  • The Great Commitment - Matthew 16:24 - We willingly surrender to God's call in all of our work.
  • The Great Requirement - Micah 6:8 - We seek always to do the right thing, even if it is not the easy thing.
  • The Great Commission - Matthew 28:19-20 - Our task and joy are to bring others into the fellowship of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
  • The Great Redemption - John 3:16 - We approach our work with the understanding that each human being, community, and situation has redemptive possibility.
