Our Beliefs

United Methodists place a strong emphasis on the love and grace of God. We believe that God’s grace is an active part of every human’s life from the moment of birth (prevenient grace), to the individual’s saving experience of God through Jesus Christ (justifying grace), and throughout the rest of his or her life in Christian discipleship (sanctifying grace). The grace of God is perceived by people through the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives and in the world.


  • We believe that salvation is found in and through Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that the Bible is the word of God and the primary authority for Christian life and faith. United Methodists believe that the Bible is true and interpret Scripture through reason, tradition, and experience.
  • We believe in justification by grace through faith. We believe in personal holiness and social action.
  • We believe in living by grace and striving for holiness–to become like Christ.
  • We believe in the balance of heart and head.
  • We believe in providence on the one hand and human freedom on the other.
  • We value tradition and are willing to embrace change.
  • We believe that God’s redemptive love is realized in human life by the activity of the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that we are part of Christ’s universal church as we become conformed to Christ.
  • We recognize the kingdom of God as both a present and a future reality.
  • While affirming the faith we share in common with all other Christians, we also affirm the unique emphasis the Wesleyan tradition places on the love and grace of God.
  • We believe the sacraments of baptism and Holy Communion are means by which the intangible reality of God’s grace touches our lives in tangible ways.
