Our aspirations are:

  • To reach the Hispanic population with the Christian gospel so they may come to Christ, be baptized, and become members of the United Methodist Church.

  • To ministry to all in their own language and culture: preaching the Word, teaching the Bible, administrating the holy Sacraments, and gathering people in worship and witness.

  • To provide specific ministries to serve the Hispanic community in their spiritual needs and alleviating human suffering with a caring pastoral presence. This includes a community ministry (social outreach) and church development (Christian education, worship).

  • To supply pastoral care to persons in need of spiritual strength including counseling to couples, troubled families, and to persons with personal, moral, or spiritual situations requiring liberation and reconciliation.

  • To visit the home of the sick, the elderly, and anybody in need. Visit those in jail, the hospital, and assisting in the courthouse, etc. To attend the children, youth and abused women

  • To lead the whole congregation in the Christian experience of ethnic and racial inclusiveness of the United Methodist Church.

  • To participate in the denomination, ethnic, community, ecumenical and inter-religious issues, being involved in ministries of service and advocacy that are relevant to specific community contexts, praying and working for Christian unity.
