The words of a mission and vision statement are only as good as they are put into action.
A mission statement defines the present state and purpose of an organization. A vision is what that organization looks like when they are accomplishing that mission.
The mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
The vision of Santee United Methodist Church is to be a community in Christ that reaches out, accepts all people, and transforms lives. Our goal is to be a church with a purpose, not just a church with programs. Everything we do as a church should be inspired by and measured by knowing the answer to why we exist.
We want all people who come to Santee UMC to build a relationship with God and others in order to experience God’s grace and mercy, and let that grace transform, liberate, and give individuals new life so the world can know the peace and justice of Christ.
