What We Believe

The mission of The United Methodist Church is “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”

Key Beliefs and Values:

  • 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. While we believe the Bible is true, we do not believe every verse of the Bible must be interpreted literally. Methodists interpret Scripture through reason, tradition, and experience.
  • We believe in justification by grace through faith.
  • We believe in personal holiness and social action.
