Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world

What Do We Believe?

  • God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus; and his life, death and resurrection demonstrates God’s redeeming love.
  • The Holy Spirit is God’s present activity in our midst.
  • We’ve been made in the image of the Creator.
  • The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today.
  • We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and is the primary authority for our faith and practice.
  • The kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope.
  • The holy scriptures are our primary resource that helps us to understand and interpret our faith. Additionally, we look to tradition, experience and reason to further our understanding.
  • The Methodist Church recognizes two sacraments in which Christ himself participated: baptism and communion.
