For more than one hundred years, Madison Street United Methodist Church has been woven into the fabric of the Clarksville community. It has witnessed births, baptisms, marriages, and funerals. It has experienced physical rebuilding following a devastating tornado in 1999 that destroyed the original historic church facility. It has experienced leadership changes, membership growth, and societal shifts and still today remains faithful to its calling to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Madison Street United Methodist Church is:
We commit to Jesus’ example of inclusive love, care, and intentional hospitality with persons of every race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, marital status, faith story, physical or mental ability, economic status, or political perspective. We respect our diversity of opinion and expressions of faith. Therefore, as God loves us, so let us love one another and serve in the name of Christ. All persons may receive Holy Communion and are eligible to be baptized and become members of the church.
GROUNDED IN SCRIPTURE
Our faith is guided by Scripture, tradition, reason, and experience. Of paramount importance, however, is Scripture as the witness of God’s creating, redeeming, and sustaining relationship with God’s people.
As part of The United Methodist Church, Madison Street has a Wesleyan heritage, and as such, places an emphasis on mind and heart and putting faith and love into practice.
CONCERNED ABOUT SOCIAL JUSTICE
For more than 100 years, Madison Street has been concerned for God’s children everywhere—the poor, the orphaned, the aging, the sick, the oppressed, and the imprisoned.
Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. In uncomplicated terms, this means we strive to nurture followers of Christ who then reach out and teach others about the love and grace of Jesus Christ.
