Our foundational beliefs are of a Triune God whose love is perfect, holy and the source of all that we know as life and creation. We believe this God provides for our redemption and salvation into a relationship with God, all humans and all creation as God intends redeemed relationship to be.
God’s grace in that love is without any constrains of sin, selfishness and agendas whether human or of other origins outside of God’s self.
We believe that we are offered life redeemed from sin and sinfulness, daily renewed through grace and anointed to be fruitful in love which touches other lives so that we and others might be drawn ever closer to Jesus the Risen Christ in relationship which fulfills the will of God for love to have dominion over sin, prejudice, hate and evil in creation. This life present and eternal as part of God’s Eternal Kingdom is received by faith in and disciple relationship with Jesus of Nazareth, Resurrected Savior.
We believe in the tenets of faith expressed in THE APOSTLES’ CREED,
TRADITIONAL VERSION as presented in The United Methodist Hymnal:
Book of United Methodist Worship
(Nashville: United Methodist Publishing House, 1989, 881.)
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of Heaven and Earth;
And in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day He rose from the dead;
He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit. The holy catholic church. The communion of saints. The forgiveness of sins. The resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen
