Our Christian Roots

United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. According to our foundational statement of beliefs in The Book of Discipline, we share the following basic affirmations in common with all Christian communities:

 

Our Christian Roots: God

 

When we say the Apostles' Creed, we join with millions of Christians through the ages in understanding God as a Trinity—three persons in one: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

Our Christian Roots: Jesus

 

We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death and resurrection demonstrates God's redeeming love. 

 

Our Christian Roots: The Holy Spirit

 

The Holy Spirit is God's present activity in our midst. When we sense God's leading, God's challenge, or God's support or comfort, it's the Holy Spirit at work.

 

Our Christian Roots: Human Beings

 

Genesis 1:27 asserts that we've been made in the image of the Creator. Like God we have the capacity to love and care, to communicate, and to create. 

 

Our Christian Roots: The Church

 

The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today.

 

Our Christian Roots: The Bible

 

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and is the primary authority for our faith and practice. 

 

God's Reign

 

The kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope. The church is both a witness to what God's kingdom will be like and a participant.
