We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and the final authority for Christian faith and living.

God, the Creator of all things, exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is Godís eternal son; truly divine and truly human. He came to earth, lived a sinless life and was crucified as the only sacrifice for our sins. He arose bodily from the dead and returned to heaven.

Men and women are created equally in Godís image and are partners in Godís creation; they were tempted by Satan and rebelled against God.

 Through repentance and personal faith in Jesus Christ our sins are forgiven, we are reborn by the Holy Spirit and we are children of God.

The church is the living body of Christ on earth of which He is the head. Jesus Christ will return to earth to raise the dead, judge the world, and establish His glorious kingdom.

As United Methodists we affirm the historic Christian faith found in creeds and confessions: The Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Articles of Religion (John Wesley's revision of the Anglican Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion from the sixteenth century), and the Confession of Faith of the Evangelical United Brethren (1963).

We also are guided by The Standard Sermons of John Wesley, our founder, his Explanatory Notes Upon the New Testament, and the General Rules of the Methodist Church (1808).

We teach the necessity of God's grace as we come to saving faith in Christ: prevenient grace (grace before conversion), justifying grace (grace at conversion), sanctifying grace (God's assistance as we grow in holiness from conversion unto death), and perfection in grace (God's assistance as we progress in holy living).

As United Methodists we affirm the Wesleyan Quadrilateral: the way of judging truth by Scripture, Tradition, Reason, and Experience.
