We are Methodists who Believe
That the one God – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – has created all things; that Jesus Christ, through the power of the cross and Resurrection, is the Lord and Savior of all the world; and that the Holy Spirit empowers the people of this church to worship and praise God and to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world in word and deed.
Our foundational beliefs are rooted in the apostolic witness revealed in Scripture and expressed through orthodox Christian teaching such as the Nicene Creed (A.D. 381):
We believe in one God, The Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being from the Father; through Him all things were made. For us and for our salvation He came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became truly human. For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; He suffered death and was buried. On the third day He rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of live, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic (universal) and apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
