We as United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. According to our foundational statement of beliefs in The Book of Discipline, we share many basic affirmations in common with all Christian communities. For more information on our beliefs, visit What We Believe on the UMC.org website.
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. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.
