That All People Would Know They Matter to God and To Us.

Because You Matter...

…God is Love, and God Loves You

We believe love is at the center of everything God has done, is doing, and will do for all people. No one is off limits from God’s love, and no one can limit God’s love. You matter, because you are loved by God.

…Jesus is Lord, and Jesus Came for You

We believe that God came to us as Jesus in order to demonstrate God’s great love for all people. By God’s grace, Jesus made it possible for all people to love God back. You matter, because Jesus lived, died, rose again, and ascended into heaven for you.

…The Holy Spirit is God’s imminent presence, and The Holy Spirit is Here For You

We believe the Holy Spirit is the gift of God’s ever-presence in us, through us, and despite us. It is through the Holy Spirit that we can be the hands and feet of Jesus through our love and service. You matter, because the Holy Spirit is always present within you.

What We Believe

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Our Christian Beliefs: The Church
The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today. Read More

Our Christian Beliefs: The Bible
We believe that the Bible is the primary authority for our faith and practice. Read More

Our Christian Beliefs: God’s Reign
The kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope. Read More

The United Methodist Church believes God’s love for the world is an active and engaged love, a love seeking justice and liberty. We cannot just be observers. So we care enough about people’s lives to risk interpreting God’s love, to take a stand, to call each of us into a response, no matter how controversial or complex. The church helps us think and act out a faith perspective, not just responding to all the other ‘mind-makers-up’ that exist in our society.

The Political Community
