About Us

Our Beliefs

 

We are a small country church, held together by the common bond of our love of and belief in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, who died and rose again to save the world.

For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

The United Methodist Church traces its roots to John and Charles Wesley in the 1700's.  John Wesley's message centered on a handful of simple truths, which include:

  • Because of sin, persons need to be saved.

  • By faith in the redemptive work of Jesus, they can be saved.

  • Through faith in Christ, they can receive assurance of that salvation.

  • Through the Holy Spirit, they can become perfect in love.

 

Many of John Wesley's writings still serve as a basis for United Methodist beliefs and the guidelines found in the current Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church are expansions or explanations of these basic truths.

 

Three Simple Rules, a Wesleyan Way of Living

  • "By doing no harm, by avoiding evil of every kind, especially that which is most generally practiced."

  • "By doing good of every possible sort, and, as far as possible, to all."

  • "By staying in love with God and attending upon all the ordinances of God."

 

We're not fancy and we don't stand on ceremony. We're a church of real people and we welcome anyone who wants to join us in worshiping the Lord.

The Apostles' Creed

 

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
