Who We Are
For Methodists, there is one word to describe us: Grace. In every moment of our lives, God's grace is constantly overwhelming us and reaching out to us. As a Methodist community, we understand grace in three ways.
Prevenient Grace - until the point that we acknowledge and accept God.
Justifying Grace- at the moment we accept God's free gift of salvation, breaking the dominion of sin and restoring us to a right relationship with God.
Sanctifying Grace- working in our lives from the moment of salvation to our final breath, recreating us in the image of Christ.
We are God's creation in need of salvation. God's grace is available to all.
"In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity."
-Reverend John Wesley
