Sunday Sermons from New Hope UMC in Brandon, Florida. Making More and Better Followers of Jesus Christ! (Formerly First United Methodist Church of Brandon) Our mission is “make more and better disciples of Jesus Christ.” We live out this commitment by inviting people to affirm that “Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior” and live that out by being loyal to “Jesus Christ through the ministry and mission of this church by their prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.“ What that looks like shines through in our Core Values: -make Passionate Worship a priority. -live out Radical Hospitality. -be engaged in an Intentional Faith Development process. -engage in acts of Risk-Taking Mission and Service. -joyfully commit to a life of Extravagant Generosity. -Each Christ follower gets to be involved in a lifelong process of growth in order to more fully love God and love others.
