Beliefs of the Methodist Church
With Christians of other communions we confess belief in the triune God?Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This confession embraces the biblical witness to God?s activity in creation, encompasses God?s gracious self-involvement in the dramas of history, and anticipates the consummation of God?s reign.
The created order is designed for the well-being of all creatures and as the place of human dwelling in covenant with God. As sinful creatures, however, we have broken that covenant, become estranged from God, wounded ourselves and one another, and wreaked havoc throughout the natural order. We stand in need of redemption.
