Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Grace United Methodist Church *

God

God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons.

jesus

We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ.
God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life,
death and resurrection demonstrate God's redeeming love.

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.

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.

the church

The church is the body of Christ,
an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today.

the BIBLE

We believe that the Bible 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. We believe in and trust the Lord of the future, and we lean into the future that God has promised.
God goes before us, beckoning us into the new world that is already being created, calling us to join in the challenging work of fashioning it.
However, when we're confronted with personal disasters or with the daily horror stories of society's ills, we may falter.
Hope may seem to be unrealistic, naive optimism. Yet our hope is not in trends. Our hope is in the Lord of all creation and all history—
a God who is still in charge and is actively at work transforming the world.
