Our Beliefs

United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. According to our foundational statement of beliefs in The Book of Discipline, we share the following basic affirmations in common with all Christian communities:

Our Christian Beliefs: God

God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons. 

Our Christian Beliefs: Jesus

We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death and resurrection demonstrate God's redeeming love. 

Our Christian Beliefs: The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is God's present activity in our midst. When we sense God's leading, God's challenge, or God's support or comfort, it's the Holy Spirit at work. 

Our Christian Beliefs: Human Beings

Genesis 1:27 asserts that we've been made in the image of the Creator. Like God we have the capacity to love and care, to communicate, and to create. 

Our Christian Beliefs: The Church

The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today. 

Our Christian Beliefs: The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the primary authority for our faith and practice. 

Our Christian Beliefs: God’s Reign

The kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope.
