"Ministry" is from the Greek word diakoneo, meaning "to serve" or douleuo, meaning "to serve

as a slave". In the New Testament, ministry is seen as service to God and to other people in 

God’s name. Jesus Christ provided the pattern for Christian ministry: He came, not to receive 

service, but to give it (Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45; John 13:1-17).


And Christians should minister by meeting people's needs with love and humility on behalf of Jesus

Christ (Matthew 20:26; Mark 10:43; John 2:5, 9; Acts 6:3; Romans 1:1; Galatians 1:10; Colossians 4:12).


At the Pelham United Methodist Church we believe that Christians are to minister to others out

of their devotion to Jesus Christ and their love for others, whether the other people are believers 

or unbelievers. Ministry to others should be impartial and unconditional, always seeking to help 

others as our Savior, Lord, and Master, Jesus Christ would.
