God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death and resurrection demonstrates God’s redeeming love.
The Holy Spirit is God’s present activity in our midst. When we sense God’s leading, God’s challenge, or God’s support or comfort, it’s the Holy Spirit at work.
Genesis 1:27 asserts that we’ve been made in the image of the Creator. Like God we have the capacity to love and care, to communicate, and to create.
The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word, that there is a factual basis for believing so and thus it is the primary authority for our faith and practice.
The kingdom or reign of God, inaugurated by Christ is both a present reality and future hope.
The foundation of Christian living is faith in Christ. Faith is the central loyalty that gives purpose and direction to our lives – being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we cannot see.
Our UMC Mission
The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by proclaiming the good news of God’s grace and by exemplifying Jesus’ command to love God and neighbor, thus seeking the fulfillment of God’s reign and realm in the world. The United Methodist Church affirms that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, and the Lord of all. Jesus’ words in Matthew provide the Church with our mission: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind. . . . and love your neighbor as you love yourself” (22:37, 39). “Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you” (28:19-20)
God’s self-revelation in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ summons the Church to ministry in the world through witness by word and deed in light of the Church’s mission. The visible church of Christ as a faithful community of persons affirms the worth of all humanity and the value of interrelationship in all of God’s creation.
