All Things New is:
A proclamation of faith in the abundance of God’s grace through Jesus Christ
A reclaiming of our United Methodist heritage as a missionary movement of God’s Holy Spirit
A vision for spiritual renewal through an invitation for all churches to be fruitful and to multiply
Our conference’s response to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) and to the teachings from the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-29)
An outline of what must be done to shift from a culture of maintenance to one of mission and fruitfulness
