What We Believe
We believe in God, the creator of heaven and earth, who made us in his image. We believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, and that his life, death and resurrection demonstrates God's redeeming love. Through him God freed us of our sin and has given us the gift of whole life, eternal life, and salvation. We believe the Holy Spirit is God's present activity in our midst. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and is the primary authority for our faith and practice.
We believe the foundation of Christian living is faith in Christ. Faith is the central loyalty that gives purpose and direction to our lives. Christian faith is grounding our lives in the living God as revealed especially in Jesus the Christ. From birth to death we’re on a journey, growing in faith.
We follow the lessons John Wesley taught his followers: to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, freeing the oppressed; being a compassionate presence, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel.
