We hold to the historic Christian faith as found in the Bible and passed down by the Church. We worship One God in Three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that God lovingly created the world and re-creates it by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. By grace, we are forgiven of sin and baptized into the new life Christ offers—a life of love, justice, and mercy. As United Methodists, we emphasize the marvelous grace of God, the pursuit of holy living, and the joy of the Christian life.
