Our Beliefs

United Methodists affirm the historic Christian faith:

  • We believe in a Triune God: The Father, Son (Jesus Christ) and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe EVERY person is a beloved child of God to be welcomed and nurtured as God’s sons and daughters.
  • We believe the church is a community where people worship God joyfully, proclaim His Word, share in the sacraments of baptism and Holy Communion, and are nurtured in the Christian faith through worship, prayer, study, fellowship, service, and witness.
