What We Believe

young20man20worshiping3

We believe the church belongs to God and that the church is, in the words of the Apostle Paul, the body of Christ.  We believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins, was resurrected on the third day, and sits at the right hand of God.  We believe in the Trinity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We believe the church is to be the physical presence of Christ in the world, and as such, our primary aim is to do God’s will.

United Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith.  We are evangelical, but moderates rather than fundamentalists.  We look to the Bible as the infallible Word of God.  Methodists have a passionate faith with strong convictions, but we also recognize that the world is not always black and white.  We are willing to ask questions, to wrestle with difficult issues, and to do so with grace and compassion.

Methodists have been known for our emphasis on a personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world.  We have historically valued well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that was lively, and small groups where people could grow in faith.
