Home About Us Our Beliefs & Vision Our Vision
The visioning team had these thoughts and questions in mind as they worked to create our vision statement:
- We build personal relationships with God and others
- We're all on a spiritual journey
- We are faithful to each other
- What makes Tucker First special?
- What makes us unique?
- Why should I want to build a relationship with this congregation?
And the answer is our vision statement:
Experiencing our faith together through serving God and
sharing help, hope and a spiritual home
Then, the team created a symbol to portray the statement...that's our logo (as seen used below):
The logo's concept is a combination of figures and the cross. It communicates not only belonging within the Church but also with belonging in Christ. The cross is formed as the "arms" of each figure connect with each other...symbolizing the relationships found in our congregation and their importance to the community. The figures are facing outward, not inward...calling us to the Great Commission and our own denomination's charge from the Discipline...to go out into the community. At the heart of the mark is the cross illustrating the centrality of Christ in the church.
Won't you be part of our vision? Come, experience faith...together - at Tucker First!
From ¶120 - 121 of the United Methodist Book of Discipline:
The mission of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Local churches provide the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs.
The Process for Carrying Out Our Mission - We make disciples as we:
- proclaim the gospel, seek, welcome and gather persons into the body of Christ;
- lead persons to commit their lives to God through baptism by water and the spirit and profession of faith in Jesus Christ;
- nurture persons in Christian living through worship, the sacraments, spiritual disciplines, and other means of grace...
- send persons into the world to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, freeing the oppressed, being and becoming a compassionate, caring presence, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel;
- continue the mission of seeking, welcoming and gathering persons into the community of the body of Christ.
Scripture: Matthew 28:19-20, 22:37,39
