About The United Methodist Church
Holy Trinity United Methodist Church is a local congregation of the United Methodist Church.
The United Methodist Church is a church in the Wesleyan tradition (founded by John Wesley) that was formed by the merger in 1939 of three Methodist bodies (Methodist Episcopal, Methodist Episcopal South, and Methodist Protestant), and a 1968 union of the Evangelical United Brethren and The Methodist churches.
John Wesley believed that the living core of the Christian faith was revealed in Scripture, illumined by tradition, vivified in personal experience, and confirmed by reason. As a church in the Wesleyan tradition, the United Methodist Church holds these principles as fundamental. We believe in:
- God's Grace as the undeserved and unmerited favor of God through which we can be brought to salvation;
- Justification God pays for our brokeness;
- Sanctification and Perfection are God's work that changes us to help us grow and help others; and,
- Good Works, happen because when God leads us and show God's power.
