What We Believe

Core beliefs

We are heirs of a long line of saints - known and unknown - who have passed
the Biblical and Historic Christian faith down to us. 

We stand firmly in the ecumenical, Orthodox beliefs expressed in the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds.
We are Protestant, tracing our theological heritage through the Anglican Church and Martin Luther.

We believe the Christian life is best expressed through a heart-felt, living, and Evangelical faith as expressed by John Wesley.

And we believe that God is working in us today - teaching us to understand and to be Alive to this faith in our own 21st century.




We believe in one God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Out of love, God created the world and continues to act for our life and salvation.

We believe that God created humans in the image of God: innocent and good. But as a race we have put ourselves under the power of sin and are broken from birth. Thankfully, God does not leave us there. Through God's grace all are made able to freely respond to Jesus' offer of salvation and restoration.

We believe that Jesus came to the earth in order to save us through his death and resurrection. By a simple life of faith in Jesus our relationship is restored with the Father, and our lives are made new through the Spirit. This salvation is available to all people, is expressed in our lives now, and leads to an eternal life with God.

The Church


The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth. 


We are a Free Methodist Church that functions in the Genesis "Conference" of the Free Methodist Church USA.  

The Free Methodist Church was founded in 1860 in Pekin, NY under the leadership of Rev. B.T. Roberts as has since grown to become a global Christian denomination.
