What We Believe
United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. According to our foundational statement of beliefs in The Book of Discipline, we share basic affirmations in common with all Christian communities. Click HERE to read more.
We believe in the foundational, historic creeds of the Christian Church, such as the Apostle's Creed and the Nicene Creed. Just as these creeds summarize the beliefs of Christians as a whole, the Articles of Religion of The Methodist Church and the Confessions of Faith of The Evangelical United Brethren Church form a foundation of doctrine for United Methodists. They are "standards" of doctrine for United Methodists. Click HERE for the articles of religion.
We believe that lost people matter to God and that they ought to matter to the Church.
- that the Church should be biblically-based while being culturally relevant.
- that excellence honors God and inspires people.
- that the Christian life is a journey, which includes the regular practice of spiritual habits.
- that life-changes best occur in “small community” settings with authentic and accountable relationships.
- that all Christians need to discover and use their Spiritual gifts.
- that all Christians are called to live out their faith in worship to God and in service to others.
