A Narrative for the Continuing United Methodist Church

What does the UMC Believe?

Did you know that The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church has a section called Doctrinal Standards and Our Theological Task that describes the core of who United Methodists are and what United Methodists believe?

It begins...


United Methodists profess the historic Christian faith in God, incarnate in Jesus Christ for our salvation and ever at work in human history in the Holy Spirit. Living in a covenant of grace under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, we participate in the first fruits of God’s coming reign and pray in hope for its full realization on earth as in heaven.

Our heritage in doctrine and our present theological task focus upon a renewed grasp of the sovereignty of God and of God’s love in Christ amid the continuing crises of human existence.

Take some time, and read Our Doctrinal Standards and Our Theological Task. The United Methodist Church doctrinal standards are clear and have not changed.
