We are South Whitley Church a great place to come to know the love of God in Jesus Christ. We are a purpose driven church. We believe each person and church exists to bring glory to God through worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and mission - that all may know and experience God's love in Jesus Christ. We are part of the global United Methodist Church, the Indiana Conference, and the Northeast Indiana District.
We believe a church dedicated to the Great Commission and the Great Commandment has a great future. Come and join us as we explore God's Word and do life together in Christ.
The Great Commission
Our mission was given to us by Jesus: "I have been given complete authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age" (Matthew 28:18-20).
The Great Commandment
We believe that all people are of sacred worth and God compels us to love - to actively work toward their good - everyone. Jesus said: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself" (Matthew 22:37-39).
