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.
