Being in mission to others is at the heart of the Methodist teachings. As John Wesley (founder of the Methodist Church) said, "Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can."
At Furley Church, we look to scripture in partnership with the teaching of John Wesley to guide all of our efforts.
Matthew 28:18 - 20, also known as The Great Commission, says - and Jesus is speaking - "Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and ot the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you to the end of the age."
Also from Matthew 26:40, again the words of Jesus, "And the King will answer them, Truly I say to you, as you did ti to one of the least of these, my brothers, you did it to me."
The Apostle Paul tells belivers in Ephesus (and us today) to cover everything in prayer. "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people." Ephesians 6:18
Through prayer we ask God to show us where He is working and how Furley Church can join Him to give care, comfort, help,and love in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
