WHO WE ARE
We hope this page gives you a good glimpse of who WMU of Texas is and what we’re all about. We take a few things very seriously. Ourselves? Not so much. We are all broken people, so here are three things you should know.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, WE MAKE DISCIPLES WHO MAKE DISCIPLES.
WE CALL THAT OUR MISSION.
As Christfollowers, we are called to fulfill the"Great Commission", so making disciples is your mission too. We strive to live our lives in such as way that we are on mission everyday. To live like missionaries in our own context and community. Jesus commands us to "Go and make disciples of all nations..." no matter our age, culture or spiritual development. We hope to see every church member committed to live a missions lifestyle and ready with their "yes" on the table. Are you ready to say "here am I Lord, send me?"
WE BELIEVE IN THE RESTORATION OF BROKENNESS THROUGH HOPE IN CHRIST. THIS IS OUR LENS. WE CALL THIS OUR VISION.
We believe we are people made in the image of God with infinite worth because we are His creation. We know we are broken people in need of restoration and healing. Through Christ's forgiveness, mercy, and grace, our lives are being made new. We are passionate about telling His story and how it has changed us. We want every culture to know His story and be changed by it as well. We give our lives to that pursuit.
WE PASSIONATELY TELL HIS STORY.
WE CREATIVELY EMPOWER LEADERS.
WE OBEDIENTLY ENGAGE THE WORLD.
THIS IS HOW WE DO MINISTRY.
The job of the church is not to fill a pew on Sunday mornings, we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus. As WMU, our desire is to come alongside your church and provide mentorship, resources, missions discipleship groups and opportunities to go deeper in discipleship by intentionally focusing on the "live it out" part of our discipleship. WMU resources center around helping churches pray for missions, engage in mission action and witnessing, learn about missions, support missions, develop spiritually toward a missions lifestyle and participate in the work of the church and denomination. This fosters a heart for missional living.
Each one of us, from the crib to the grave, is charged with the challenge of living like Jesus in our own context - with our own gifts and abilities. We see WMU resources as way to educate and prepare your congregation for the mission field. Is your church a missions training ground?
