United Methodist Beliefs
The United Methodist Church is part of the church universal. All persons, regardless of race, national origin, status or economic condition are welcome to attend its services, to receive Holy Communion, and after taking vows, to be baptized and admitted into membership.
United Methodist preaching and teaching is grounded in Scripture, informed by Christian tradition, enlivened in personal experience, and tested by reason.
