What We Believe

back to John Wesley, an Anglican priest in the Church of England in the
1700s. John and his brother, Charles, intended to revitalize the Church
of England by forming societies of "Methodists"– so called because the
members followed a daily routine of religious observance and social
work.Today United Methodist

believe in a Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in
God’s love and forgiveness of all people. We believe in the mystery of
salvation through Jesus Christ. And we believe in celebrating the
Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.
