Our Faith

Methodists have always been clear that no-one is beyond the reach of God's love.

The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission.

A member of the Methodist Church is called to:

  • worship within the local church, including regular sharing in Holy Communion, and through personal prayer
  • learning and caring, through Bible study and meeting for fellowship, so that they may grow in faith and support others in their discipleship
  • service, by being a good neighbour in the community, challenging injustice and using their resources to support the Church in its mission in the world
  • evangelism, through working out their faith in daily life and sharing Christ with others.

Four Alls

The traditional summary of Methodist teaching is:

  • All need to be saved.
  • All may be saved.
  • All may know themselves saved.
  • All may be saved to the uttermost.
