We believe Jesus Christ is the son of the Virgin Mary, that he led a sinless life, and that he died on the Cross for our sins, was dead and buried and that on the third day he was resurrected, lives and sits at the side of God.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that God has revealed himself as the Trinity. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is the eternal being who created and preserves all things. The Son of God refers to the status of Jesus as the divine son of God the Father. The Holy Spirit is understood to be one of the three persons of the Trinity.
We believe the Communion Table is open to all believers. John Wesley and his brother Charles participated in Communion several times a week. John suggested that we should participate in Communion as often as possible. We hold that belief and custom to be true.
The Sixty Six books of the Bible are inspired by God the Father. They serve as the law and foundation for all mankind. The Bible is our Book of Discipline.
The Church is not a building, the Church is the people.
John Wesley founded the Methodist Church which predates the United Methodist Church of today, which was formed in 1968. We split from the United Methodist Church in August 2019. We do not believe man needs to create Church laws that differ from the word of God. Nor do we believe that man is entitled to add restrictions to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
We are founded in many of the traditions established by John Wesley, though not all. There are approximately 80 million Methodist around the world, of which only 11 million are United Methodist. That number will drop in May 2020, when the United Methodist Church splits and dissolves as it is know today.
The Methodist traditions are lived out thru us.
Administration of the Church
We believe administration and operation of the Church to be a collaborative effort where everyone has voice, all views are taken into consideration and all meetings are open and cooperative. While we may follow best practices in the administration and operations of the Church, the Bible serves as our Book of Discipline.
