United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. We believe in the Trinity, or God in three persons. The threefold nature of God is commonly referred to as Father, Son and Holy Spirit or in other ways such as Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.

With many other Protestants, we recognize the two sacraments in which Christ himself participated: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We practice infant baptism and certainly baptize a person of any age who has not yet been baptized in a Christian denomination. We share in the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of each month and consider this a formative time in our community life. We practice “open Communion,” welcoming all who love Christ, repent of their sin, and seek to live in peace with one another.
