What We Believe

Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.

– Romans 15:7

Before becoming an established denomination, Methodism began as a renewal movement. Our movement’s founder, John Wesley, believed God’s love is found with every person and that our response to God’s love is both personal and social.

To this day, United Methodists are encouraged to follow John Wesley’s three general rules for living a Christian life:

  1. Do no harm
  2. Do good
  3. Stay in love with God
