What we Believe

Fulfilling Jesus’ Great Commission for His Church at
Knightsville Methodist


Jesus called his followers to action when he gave the Great Commission, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). This is the mission of The United Methodist Church – to “make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
The Great Commandment: “Jesus said, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart…soul…and mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.  All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.’”  Matthew 22:36-40

The Great Commission: “Jesus said, ‘Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”  Matthew 28:19-20

  • To “Love God with all your heart” is “WORSHIP”.
  • To “Love your neighbor as yourself” is “MINISTRY”.
  • To “Go…make disciples” is “EVANGELISM”.
  • To “Baptize…” is to “INCORPORATE INTO FELLOWSHIP”.
  • To “Teach them…all things” is “DISCIPLESHIP”.
1. To CELEBRATE God’s Presence (Worship)
2. To DEMONSTRATE God’s Love (Ministry)
3. To COMMUNICATE God’s Word (Evangelism)
4. To ASSIMILATE God’s Family (Fellowship)
5. To EDUCATE God’s People (Discipleship)

What It Means To Be A Part of Our Family


The difference between “coming to church” and “becoming family” can be summed up in one word: COMMITMENT


At Knightsville we recognize the need for a committed relationship.  We commit to these four specific reasons to grow ourselves and our church:

1. A Biblical Reason: Christ is committed to the church

“…Christ loved the church, and he gave his life for it.”  Ephesians 5:25

2. A Cultural Reason: It is an antidote to our society

We live in an age where very few want to be committed to anything…a job…a marriage…our country.  This attitude has even produced a generation of “church shoppers and hoppers”.  Membership swims against the current of America’s “consumer religion.”  It is an unselfish decision.  Commitment always builds character.


3. A Practical Reason: It defines who can be counted on

Every team must have a roster.  Every school must have an enrollment.  Every business has employees.  Every army has an enlistment.  Even our country takes a census and requires voter registration.  Membership identifies our family.

4. A Personal Reason: It produces spiritual growth

The New Testament places a major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth.  You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to any specific church family.
