As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. United Methodists confess belief in the triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.Grace pervades our understanding of Christian faith and life. By grace we mean the undeserved, unmerited, and loving action of God in human existence through the ever-present Holy Spirit.Faith and Good Works – We see God’s grace and human activity working together in the relationship of faith and good works.
God’s grace calls forth human response and discipline.Mission and Service – We insist that personal salvation always involved Christian mission and service to the world. By joining heart and hand, we assert that personal religion, evangelical witness, and Christian social action are reciprocal and mutually reinforcing.
Scriptural holiness entails more than personal piety; love of God is always linked with love of neighbor, a passion for justice and renewal in the life of the world.
