Our Beliefs…

 

United Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We are classic Christians in our contemporary setting.  We highly value the logic of thinking, the historical beliefs of God’s people (the church), and the experiences of people.  Leading and informing all of these is The Bible – the Old and New Testaments, our authoritative and reliable book of faith, showing the way to life that really is life.  Methodists have a passionate faith with strong convictions, but we also recognize that the world presents us with many choices. We are willing to ask questions, to wrestle with difficult issues, and to do so with grace and compassion.

 

Methodists have been known for our emphasis on a personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. We have historically valued well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that was lively, and small groups where people could grow in faith.

 

Methodists have open hearts, and open minds–and welcome anyone interested in learning more about the Christian faith and way of life.
