What Do United Methodists Believe?
We believe in…
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God
the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge
the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
Sacraments and the United Methodist Church
In the United Methodist Church there are two sacraments that are celebrated – Baptism and Holy Communion. We baptize children, youth, and adults. Traditionally we use the method of sprinkling for the act of baptism.
Holy Communion in the United Methodist Church is open to all worshippers who desire to receive the sacrament. You do not have to be a member of Asbury or any other church in order to receive the grace of Jesus Christ that is present in the sacrament. Holy Communion is served to all ages as desired. The sacrament is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month along with special services throughout the year.
