The mission of the First United Methodist Church at the Chicago Temple is to welcome everyone to worship God in the heart of the city, and to be a nurturing community that offers Christ’s love and word throughout the world.
To honor this mission, we envision in the church and world:
- Embracing the diversity of God’s creation
- Offering sacred space as a sanctuary for all
- Promoting education and spiritual growth
- Being good stewards of God’s gifts, talents and resources
- Embodying God’s love as we minister to our neighbors everywhere through prayer and acts of service
- Offering public witness for justice and mercy
