What we believe
Four Great Christian Truths
Of The United Methodist Church:
1. God's love includes everyone!
"The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise...
He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish,
but everyone to come to repentance."
-2 Peter 3:9
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one
and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not
perish but have eternal life."
This is the most wonderful truth in the world: God loves
each of us, whoever we are, whatever our lot in life!
Everyone of us can say: "I am loved by the Creator
2. Though separated from God by sin, we can be
saved through faith in Jesus Christ!
"...you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will
save his people from their sins."
Receiving Christ is more than giving mental assent to
the truth of Christ, or merely having an emotional
experience. To receive Christ means turning from sin to
Christ, and relying upon him to forgive our sins, to live
in our lives, and to help us become what we ought to
3. God’s Spirit brings assurance that we belong to Him!
"The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are
Each of us can be assured of our acceptance with God!
4. A life dominated by perfect love is the goal of the Christian experience.
Jesus spoke of such love when He said:
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all
your soul, and with all your mind"
To live in perfect love is to seek God’s will in every situation, and to desire the best for every individual. The Bible states,"... the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us." (Romans 5:5)
Surrender to the Holy Spirit brings purity of motive, singleness of purpose, and liberation for a life of love toward God and humanity. The Holy Spirit enables us to express love in all our relationships.
