We believe in one living and true God, everlasting, eternal in the heavens.
We believe in the unity of this Godhead there are three persons, of one substance, power, and eternity- the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ who is our Savior, who was born of the blessed virgin. He was born, lived, died and rose from the dead to live eternal in the heavens.
Through Jesus Christ we are to be born again into a new life because we cannot save ourselves by any works of our own doing.
These beliefs are fully explained in the United Methodist Book of Discipline 2012.
John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist church set forth three rules:
- By doing no harm.
- By doing good.
- By attending upon all the ordinances of God: worship, prayer, etc.
