Our Mission and Vision

I can to all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13

First United Methodist Church of Carlyle, Illinois has taken these words from Philippians 4:13 to heart. We have incorporated these words into the life of the congregation. We literally have learned that in the name of Jesus Christ things happen. Lives change, fear turns into faith, hate turns into love and love overcomes all things.
By the power of faith in Jesus Christ there are no limits to the ministry here in Carlyle, Illinois. We have learned the power of prayer, giving, receiving, and listening. We have learned that the love of God is first and foremost. Then Jesus tells us to “love our neighbor as ourselves.”
