Jesus loves you
We are glad you have visited our website. The Elk City-Havana Parish of the Methodist Church welcomes you to explore the information on this site and invites you to visit one or both of our loving small family churches.
Each of our congregations is just a group of very imperfect people who are seeking to discover more of what God and His plans for us can mean to our lives. We believe that loving one another and supporting one another is an important part of being “Church.”
We believe you will find the atmosphere at our worship services both caring and inspirational. It is our desire to speak directly to life as it is and to live out our three point mission to grow in our faith.
We don’t push our faith on anyone. We feel the New Testament calls us to love, share, and to invite people to what Christ offers. We don’t believe that includes arm twisting, extreme emotionalism, or bugging someone. We are of the mind that there are also many ways of looking at things and that people do not have to all believe exactly the same way to share in the same church home.
We believe that being honest and searching for answers to difficult life questions is a part of the Christian faith. Most of all we want you to know that God loves you and that we would be delighted to have you worship among us. Hope to see you on Sunday!
Our Mission & Vison
Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who worship passionately, love extravagantly, and witness boldly.
In our worship, we desire to surrender to and be fully devoted to one God—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are passionate about what is important to God.
Jesus calls those who follow Him to love God wholeheartedly and love their neighbors as themselves. We will demonstrate to the world the extravagant love of God in the person of Jesus Christ.
We have been entrusted with a lifesaving and transforming message that we must share with others. Our witness will be bold, compelling and fearless. Our mission advances when individuals become disciples of Jesus Christ and join God’s mission to make more disciples.
Our Vision is to join God in a journey of bringing new life, reconciliation, and the presence of Christ to all people, and to helping each person to increasingly reflect the character of Christ.'
Through our ministries, we desire to share the whole counsel of God with all peoples and to advance the presence and fulfillment of the Kingdom of God in every part of the world and at all levels of societies and cultures. our church is committed to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the inspiration and authority of the Scriptures, and the work of the Holy Spirit in conveying God’s truth and grace to all people.
We are a part of a global church that recognizes and deploys the gifts and contributions of each part of the church, working as partners in the gospel with equal voice and leadership.
Our witness to the world will be marked by mutual love, concern, sharing, and a focus on those who are most vulnerable. We will watch over one another in love and bear witness to the transforming power of the Good News as we humbly, but boldly, strive to serve others as ambassadors of Christ!
