What We Believe

What We Believe

Our calling is to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Christ and to live out its discipleship, through WorshipLearning and Caring, Service and Evangelism.


We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and died on the cross for the forgiveness of sin and that we can find forgiveness, joy and purpose through following Him and his Word.


The Methodist Church is the fourth largest Christian Church in Britain, after the Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches and the Church of Scotland. It has more than six thousand churches and a total membership of approximately 330,000 people. There are Methodist Churches in nearly every country in the world and global membership numbers some 70 million people.

The Methodist Church is traditionally known as non-conformist because it does not conform to the rules and authority of the established Church of England.

Our core beliefs reflect orthodox Christianity. Methodist teaching is sometimes summed up in four particular ideas known as the four alls.

  • All need to be saved – the doctrine of original sin
  • All can be saved – Universal Salvation
  • All can know they are saved – Assurance
  • All can be saved completely – Christian perfection
