What do United Methodists believe? 

United Methodist churches might seem very different from each other in some ways in which they express their beliefs. Some UM churches are organized around a small group ministry and some are so small that worship itself is a small group. Some UMCs send people to do missions in far-off lands, and some UMCs are organized around a specific ministry right in their own neighborhood. Some UMCs have very traditional-style worship services and some haven't seen an organ or pew in decades. However they differ in the way they express their beliefs, United Methodists do have some agreement on what those beliefs are. And we also agree to disagree; after all, Jesus called us to community, not to uniformity! Here's where you can explore what our denomination affirms. 

St. Paul's is a diverse congregation, with a range of political and cultural viewpoints represented among our "church family." And like the best of families, we welcome this diversity, respect each other, and work hard to find common ground. In our case, common ground is holy ground, as we bring our differences and similarities together in worship of the One who gives grace to us all.
