Franklin United Methodist Church is a fellowship of believers who have come together as a family of faith. Together we have established the following purpose, vision, and mission statements:

Purpose: "Willing and ready to follow and serve Jesus Christ."

Vision: "Franklin UMC shares God's love, Christ's sacrifice, and
our faith for the salvation of the world."

Mission: "We believe in Jesus Christ whom we follow, serve, and share."

Key Verse: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16-17
