Our Mandate/Vision (What we do)
 
At First United Methodist Church of Mineola, we are living into the vision God has given us by:
 
Loving God, Sharing Faith, Serving Neighbors
 
The biblical basis for our vision statement is: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” (Luke 10:27 NRSV)
