United Methodists believe in The Triune God-head (Father, Son and Holy Ghost).
We hold in faith the mystery of salvation in and through Jesus Christ alone.
At the heart of the Gospel of salvation is God’s incarnation in Jesus Christ.
Justification as sinners is by grace through faith.
We believe in Jesus life and teaching,
His atoning death, His resurrection, His sovereign presence in history,
His triumph over evil and death, and His promised return.
God loves us in spite of our sins and judges us, summons us to repentance, pardons us,
receives us by that grace given to us in Jesus Christ, and gives us the hope of eternal life.
We believe in the indwelling and the activity of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the reign of God is both a present and future reality.
We recognize the authority of Scripture.
We acknowledge God’s Grace.
By grace we mean the undeserved, unmerited, and loving action of God in human existence
through the ever-present Holy Spirit.
God’s grace is undivided, yet it precedes salvation as “prevenient grace”,
continues in “justifying grace”, and is brought to fruition in “sanctifying grace.”
Finally we believe in faith evident in works of mission, service, and nurturing.
