Our Savior United Methodist Church Basic Beliefs
Our Savior United Methodist Church seeks to create disciples for Christ through outreach and evangelism. With a focus on triune worship, we seek to bring honor to God by following the model of Jesus Christ, which is made possible by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The flame in our church logo represents the work of the Holy Spirit in the world, which is seen in believers through spiritual gifts.
Methodists believe that people, although sinful, are free to make their own choices because of God's divine grace. God gives unmerited favor to all people, though it may be resisted.
Our Savior United Methodist Church recognizes two sacraments: Baptism and Holy Communion.
Methodists affirm the real presence of Christ in Holy Communion. We believe the sacrament to be a means of grace and therefore practice all are welcome.
Methodists generally practice Baptism by sprinkling, pouring, or immersion. This is a sign of new birth and a mark initiating a covenant with our Church family.

Through Jesus death on the cross we are given the gift of grace.
The Old and New Testaments are God inspired truths.
God is one God in three persons.
