We are a church of open minds, open hearts, and open doors, so if you have questions about faith we welcome you. Questions in our faith can lead to better understanding and we all have questions. Just know that it is a natural part of our journey. For more on beliefs of the United Methodist Church, go to:
As United Methodists, we share a common heritage with all Christians in that we believe:
In God as the Trinity - three persons in one - God the Father, God the Son in Jesus, and God the Holy Spirit.
In God as our creator and our sustainer and still present in the world.
In God with a love for all of creation and all of us as people.
In salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
In the Church as the extension of the life and ministry of Christ in the world today.
In the Bible as God's word and the primary authority for our faith .
Our Wesleyan heritage: As a founder of the Methodist movement, John Wesley and his followers emphasized several key areas of the Christian faith based on scripture.
God's Grace - God's love and mercy given to us as a gift not because we have earned it, but because he wants us to have it.
Faith and Good Works - What we believe must be confirmed in what we do. Our salvation is not determined by works, but must be expressed in ministry and mission to the world.
Mission and Service - Because of what God has done for us, we offer our lives back to God through a life of service.
Nurture and Mission of the Church - We are both a nurturing and a servant church. This means that we come together to grow as Christians by serving others and we also remain focused on the mission of the church to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.
