Monacrest Free Methodist Church
 
Our Vision:

     To be a Bridge of Hope to the Beaver Valley
 
Our Purpose:
 
     The purpose of the Monacrest Church is to develop GC2 Christians.
 
Meaning of GC2:
 
     1st G - Practicing the Great Commandment – Matthew 22:37-39
 
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
 
 
     2nd G - Participating in the Great Commission – Matthew 28:18-20
 
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
