Our Mission

Webster Memorial United Church, in obedience to God, will become a FAMILY CHURCH which grows through inspiring and challenging WORSHIP, welcoming and caring FELLOWSHIP, active EVANGELISM and deliberate DISCIPLESHIP, competent and sensitive LEADERSHIP and RELEVANT MINISTRY.

What we Believe

Relationship with God:

So we may know God and relate to God as a person, rather than an impersonal force, knowing Jesus to be Lord of our lives, so we may grow in grace and in the power of the Holy Spirit (Mark 12:29-31, Matthew 3:16-17, Romans 8:1-17).

The Bible:

The preaching, teaching, studying, and obeying of God’s Word, as the supreme rule of faith and life (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Matthew 4:1-11, Ephesians 6:10-17).

Spiritual Disciplines (Prayer, Fasting, Worship, etc.):

Personally and corporately communing with the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, attributing honour and seeking after God’s heart, to be empowered for ministry (Psalm 95:1-6, Matthew 6:5-18).


Sharing the story of God’s amazing love demonstrated by Jesus Christ, in a relevant manner, to those without Christ in our community and beyond (Matthew 28:18-20).

Discipleship and Holiness:

The intentional and relational development of believers to become mature followers of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:2, Colossians 3:1-17).


By tithing, and with the generosity of thankfulness, the commitment of gifts and resources (time, talents, and money) to advance God’s kingdom in the world; the proper care and optimal use of the resources provided for God’s work; and the care of God’s creation (1 Peter 4:10, 1 Corinthians 16:2, Matthew 23:23).

Mission and Outreach:

Seeking always to respond to the hurts and needs of people, giving them hope; always acting justly and being advocates of justice (James 2:15-16, Deuteronomy 16:18-20, Zechariah 7:8-10, Luke 11:42, Luke 4:17-19).

A Loving Fellowship and Unity:

Strengthening our community of believers in a Christ-like manner, by affirming each other and responding to each other’s needs with understanding and compassion, so as to encourage others to be drawn to a life in Christ (Romans 15:17); constantly acting in love towards one another, while acknowledging our diversity, but always seeking the unity of the Church for the building of the kingdom (Romans 14:19, Acts 2:42-47, Ephesians 2:11-22, 4:1-16).


Family is a gift from God. As we grow in relationships, we encounter God through each other, and are strengthened to live for God in the world. (Psalm 127:3-5, 128:3-4, Ephesians 5:22-33, 6:1-4).

The Work and Worth of All People:

Displaying unconditional love to all people, acknowledging all in the ministry of Christ, affirming the priesthood of all believers, embracing the gifts of the Spirit, and enabling each person to participate to the fullest extent possible (Matthew 12:28-31, 1 Peter 2:4-10, Ephesians 4:7-13, 2 Corinthians 1:12-14).
