What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Faith Global Methodist Church of Delmont based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible and upheld in The Transitional Book of Doctrines and Discipline. All our teachings and ministry are rooted in and flow out of these biblical doctrines.


We believe in one true, holy, and living God, Eternal Spirit, who is Creator, Sovereign and Preserver of all things visible and invisible. God is infinite in power, wisdom, justice, goodness, and love, and rules with gracious regard for the well-being and salvation of all humanity, to the glory of his name. We believe the one God reveals himself as the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, distinct but inseparable, eternally one in essence and power.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, both fully human and fully God, in whom the divine and human natures are perfectly and inseparably united. He is the eternal Word made flesh, the begotten Son of the Father, born of the Virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit. As ministering servant, he lived, suffered, and died on the cross. He was buried, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven to be with the Father, and will one day return. He is eternal Savior and mediator who intercedes for us, and by him all humanity will be judged.

Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit who proceeds from and is one being with the Father and the Son. He convinces the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. He leads humanity through faithful response to the gospel into the fellowship of the church. He comforts, sustains, and empowers the faithful and guides them into all truth.

The Church

We believe the Christian Church is the community of all true believers under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We believe it is one, holy, apostolic and catholic. The Word of God is preached by persons divinely called, and the sacraments are duly administered according to Christ’s own appointment. Under the discipline of the Holy Spirit the Church exists for the maintenance of worship, the edification of believers and the redemption of the world.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God received as the Old and New Testaments. We believe in the authority of the Holy Scriptures. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit the Holy Bible reveals God to humanity and draws us into a personal relationship with him. The Bible is to be received through the Holy Spirit as the true rule and guide for faith and practice.

The Sacraments

We believe that the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion (The Lord’s Supper) are ordained by Jesus Christ as symbols and pledges of the Christian’s profession and of God’s love toward us. They are means of grace by which God works invisibly in us, quickening, strengthening, and confirming our faith in him. Two sacraments are ordained by Christ our Lord, namely Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism signifies entrance into the household of faith and is a symbol of repentance and inner cleansing from sin, a representation of the new birth in Jesus Christ and a mark of Christian discipleship. The Lord’s Supper is a representation of our redemption, a memorial of the suffering and death of Christ, and a token of love and union which Christians have with Christ and with one another.

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.
