What We Believe
" I want the whole Christ for my Savior, the whole Bible for my book, the whole Church for my fellowship and the whole world for my mission field.”
- John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Movement
United Methodists share a common heritage with Christians of every age, nation and language. This heritage is grounded in the witness to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, which is the source and measure of all valid Christian teaching. As such, we hold to these basic Christian principles:
We hold in common with all Christians that salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son.
We hold in common with all Christians that God’s presence is realized in human life by the activity of the Holy Spirit, both in personal experience and in the community of believers.
We understand ourselves to be a part of the body of Christ, the church, and share the essential oneness of that body.
We share in common with all Christians the acknowledgement of Scripture [God’s Word] as the ultimate and error free source of authority for all of creation.
We believe that God gave to the church the five-fold gifts of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher with the specific purpose of equipping God’s people to continue the work on earth started by Christ.
We believe in the faithful and regular participation of church members through our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. We believe it is the responsibility of every believer to discover and use their spiritual gifts for the work of ministry in loving service to others.
