Being part of a big family

Love God and love your neighbour (Matt 22:36–40).

This is the greatest commandment as laid out by Jesus. It is through The Methodist Church in Singapore (MCS) that I have grown to understand and am learning to live out this commandment as a disciple of Christ.

I grew up in a Methodist church and was also brought up in Methodist schools—it was where I grew in my desire to know God. It was where my faith was shaped by the Christian values instilled in me. It was where I discerned God’s calling for me, leading me to study at Trinity Theological College and now serve as a Christian Ministry Staff.

It was through the connectionalism of The Methodist Church, seen in the Aldersgate celebration services and other combined church events, that I was discipled in God’s Word and built friendships with others from the Methodist family. I came to recognise that despite our being from different annual conferences, we are one big family and play an important role in nurturing the next generation.

MCS is also where I grew to love my neighbours through social action and evangelism in various ministries, from schools to homes for the elderly. MCS plays an important part in society and we have been given this platform to serve the needs of our neighbours.

Being a Methodist means being a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ where we, as one big family, obey His commandment of loving God and serving our neighbours together.
