LaVale United Methodist Church is a church that is excited about making disciples of Jesus Christ by following the purpose-driven model found in Acts 2:42-47.  In this scripture passage we observe the disciples teaching the first believers to do what Jesus taught them to do: to worship, fellowship, learn of Christ, minister to one another and reach out in mission to others.  LaVale UMC follows this same paradigm. We believe a healthy church is a church that does all five. 

Our vision is to share the love of Christ.  Our mission is to empower people to know, serve and glorify God.

The Five Purposes of the Church are:

Worship- Experiencing the living God through worship.

Fellowship- Embracing all people and bringing them into fellowship in God's family.

Discipleship- Edifying believers to mature discipleship.

Ministry- Empowering believers for ministry in the church.

Mission- Equipping believers for mission in the world.
