Welcome to Mt. Horeb United Methodist Church! We are a prayer driven church with a mission of making, maturing and mobilizing disciples who magnify Jesus Christ. We offer dynamic Christian programs for all ages with an emphasis on discipleship, missions and outreach. We offer four worship services each Sunday, including both contemporary and traditional styles. Mt. Horeb is committed to going above and beyond to reach the least and the lost for Jesus Christ.
We are convinced all things find their true meaning in and through Jesus Christ. Jesus shows us who God is and at the same time, who we are meant to be. He has the last word and final say about who we understand ourselves to be and how we live our lives. We believe the greatest thing we can do for the world is lift Jesus up in worship and invite people into a saving relationship with Him. Colossians 1:15-20; Revelation 5:12-13; Matthew 6:33
Jesus’ fundamental gospel message had to do with God’s Kingdom drawing near. The Kingdom of God is more of a reality than a location; the Kingdom of God is wherever things are the way God wants them to be. To follow Jesus means to devote ourselves to the advancement of God’s Kingdom here on earth by picking up our cross, following Jesus into the broken places of the world and partnering with him in putting the pieces back together. Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Matthew 25:40
We believe in truth as revealed in Holy Scripture. The Bible is God’s infallible Word for authority and guidance. Understanding God’s Word provides light for our lives. Psalms 119:130; 2 Timothy 3:16
Jesus’ invitation is to come and follow. There is no neutrality in the Kingdom of God. If we have said yes to Jesus, then we have also been called and equipped by the Holy Spirit to play a role in what Jesus is doing by serving the church and changing the world. 1 Peter 4:10; Matthew 16:24-25; Romans 12:11
In sending the world Jesus, God spared no expense but unloaded the resources of heaven in order to rescue a world He loves. In light of this, we are committed to doing whatever it takes to reach people with the good news of the gospel. 1 Corinthians 9:22-23; Ephesians 3:20; Matthew 28:18-19; Psalm 67:1
In Jesus, we are introduced to the God who knows us inside and out as if we were the only person on the planet. We are committed to being a church that doesn’t forget about its people. You are not just a number. You are a vital part of the story God is telling through this church. Romans 12:13; Matthew 10:29-31
The full life of God meets us in a unique way as we move closer together in relationships. Our shared life is one of the primary ways in which we encounter God for ourselves and prove to the watching world our relationship with Jesus is real. Acts 2:42-47; John 17:20-21
Prayer is the most powerful thing we can do. Prayer is neither a formality nor a matter of going through the motions. There is real power in prayer to move the heart of God to accomplish or bring about things that otherwise would not happen. 1 Thessalonians 5:17; Acts 2:42; 1 John 5:14
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
