We are a diverse family whose mission is to invite all people to experience life in Jesus Christ while honoring God in all we do.
United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians according to our foundational statement of beliefs in The Book of Discipline.
We describe God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, though in referring to this threefold nature of God, sometimes the terms Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer are used.
• God, the Father, Creator
We believe that God raised Jesus from the dead and that the risen Christ lives today. (Christ and Messiah mean the same thing—God’s Anointed.); that Jesus is our Savior and in Christ we receive abundant life and forgiveness of sins; and that Jesus is our Lord and we are called to pattern our lives after his.
We believe that the Holy Spirit awakens us to God's will and empowers us to live obediently; and that the Holy Spirit comforts us when we are in need and convicts us when we stray from God.
We follow our United Methodist heritage of faith that God's grace is present in our lives and that we live according to the example of Jesus Christ.
