We are excited to participate in the story God is writing through our individual lives and our community.  We are a church where God is changing lives, re-ordering priorities, and where we are learning how to live together in the freedom of whom God created us to be.   

The hand logo serves as a reminder of who we are as McPherson Free Methodist Church.  With our hands we serve God and others.  With our hands we respond as Jesus calls us to follow Him.  The "ichthys", or fish symbol, in the palm of the hand is a reminder that we are connected to the church located around the world and throughout history.  "Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me."  John 12:26


John 12:26a "Whoever serves me (Jesus) must follow me" 

At Mac Free we are servants who serve God and others. It is out of love for God and for people that we serve Jesus together. As we follow Jesus's example, we find that we are compelled to serve others in the church, community, and world. You are invited to join us in serving God and others.   

It is important to understand that placing faith in Christ includes a cost. Jesus said, "Whoever wants to be my disciple, must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.  For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it." (Mark 8:34-35)   

All of us are servants. We have different roles, but we are all servants.  Christians are people who have committed to a call higher than their own desires and dreams. Since we belong to Christ, it is our joy and honor to serve Him with our lives.     

When we serve together, we have the ability to exponentially multiply our influence for Christ in this world, and we are committed to that end.


John 12:26a "Whoever serves me (Jesus) must follow me"  At Mac Free we follow Jesus wherever. Jesus calls each of us to listen to Him and to follow. As we walk the journey of life together, our goal is to be willing to go wherever Jesus calls us. This journey is exciting, and you are invited to join us.   

As followers, we need to know the one we are following. Knowing and trusting Christ is central. "And God placed all things under his [Jesus] feet and appointed him to the head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way" (Ephesians 1:22).  We are to be about the Master's work and about the Master Himself.     

As a church body we are committed to following Jesus...wherever! We are learning to seek His guidance and listen well. When we set our priorities to follow and serve Jesus, God is free to wow us with opportunities to make disciples and teach others to follow and serve Christ. 


Unity is a collective focus on what matters most. It comes from a collective commitment to the will of God. "I [Jesus] have given them the glory that you [God] gave me, that they may be one as we are one---I in them and you in me---so that they be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me" (John 17:22-23).   

We must remember that unity matters! Forgiveness and grace must be extended. Pettiness and pride must be released. Unity happens when we learn about and engage in each other's stories. We are purposely involved in each other's lives, and as a community we are becoming a people united in direction and focus.
