What We Believe

As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.

United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. We believe in the Trinity - God, who is one, revealed in three distinct persons. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Incarnation, the Word made flesh, and that through his life, death, and resurrection we see God’s love and experience God’s saving power. We believe that the Holy Spirit is at work in us and in the world always and everywhere. We believe that all people are treated in the image of God and have the capacity to love and to be loved. We believe that the church is the body of Christ and an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today. We believe that the Bible is God’s word and give it the primary authority of our faith and practice. We believe the kingdom of God is both now and future hope.
