What We Believe

We live in the story of God

In the beginning God created and continues the work of creation even now. God was, brought forth life, and called it good. God created human beings in God’s own image, and called us good. Unfortunately, our trust in God failed, and humanity has been in this history long search for truth and hope. Still God’s love remained steadfast, that is, God never gives up on us. God sent God’s Son, Jesus to live among us.

 

You Matter To God.

Jesus prayed a prayer of sorrow before his death. In it, he prayed of his passion that everyone would know God’s Love, and his sorrow that so many had turned away from that love. We believe that each person matters deeply to God. Though we sometimes stumble and fail in our care for each other, we hold fast to the conviction that every person is a good gift from our Heavenly Father.

We Need God and We Need Each Other

Holy Scripture is pretty clear: We need God and we need each other. That we need God is obvious, but hard to admit. We keep trying to fix everything on our own, the Bible says, trusting in our own righteousness, but we are not doing so well. It is God, the Eternal Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer of Life that gives hope to all humanity. And each other-we were never meant to be alone. That’s why-no matter who you are, and what is going on with you, we have gifts that help each other live and love in Christ.
Our Church…The United Methodist Church

With Christians of other communions we confess belief in the triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Wesley believed that the living core of the Christian faith was revealed in Scripture, illumined by tradition, vivified in personal experience, and confirmed by reason.

Scripture

The Bible has something True to say. We believe in the Scriptures as contained in the Old and New Testaments. We trust these scriptures as the story of what God is doing in our world, and what it is to be fully alive in Christ Jesus.
