OUR BELIEFS

Founded in 1860 by Benjamin Titus Roberts, the Free Methodist Church was born from the desire to free worship from constraints that were distancing men and women from their ability to connect with God. Our church is a member of the Free Methodist Church of the United States of America, and therefore our beliefs align with its established doctrine. A complete copy of the doctrine can be found here, but to summarize our beliefs:
 
  • We believe there is one living and true God, and in the unity of this Godhead are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. His son, Jesus Christ, who was born of the Virgin Mary, came to earth as a blameless sacrifice for our sins. He was crucified, rose from the dead, and ascended into Heaven until He returns. Jesus Christ was the perfect sacrifice for our sins. When we repent and accept His perfect sacrifice to begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, we are made new in Him.
 
  • We believe our final destiny is determined by our response to God’s grace. Those who accept the grace of God will enter Heaven, and those who do not will experience a hell of eternal suffering.
 
  • We believe the Bible, God’s word, was inspired by the Holy Spirit, and consequently, the Holy Spirit continues to speak to new generations and cultures through these Scriptures. The Bible, which teaches the path to salvation and a life of faith, is the authority over human life.
 
  • We believe the church is God’s instrument to build His kingdom.
