What We Believe

As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.

We Believe

In salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death and resurrection demonstrates God’s redeeming love.

God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons.

That the Bible is God’s Word and is the primary authority for our faith and practice.

That the kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope.

That the church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today.

Connection with the Frankenmuth United Methodist Church

The members who make up this shoot of the body of Christ are as diverse as the region and community in which we live, work, and have connection. We are parents and grandparents, students and seniors, working and retired; married, single, committed and connected from many walks of life united in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Through small groups, community connection, and missional outreach we seek to grow in our Christian faith, demonstrating the love of God for the world. Balancing intellectual inquiry and spiritual fervor, as Methodists we are guided in our faith by scripture, tradition, reason, and experience. We are evangelical in Christ, socially engaged in praxis, connectional in organization, and Spirit led in shared and personal journeys of faith.

Connection with the United Methodist Church

With United Methodist around the world we center ourselves in the grace of God made known in Jesus Christ. We are committed to the church ecumenical and universal, recognizing Christ’s reflection in all those who walk in his way, seeking to live in peace with one another.

As a living body rooted in the historic church we recognized and celebrate a variety of worship, Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and service opportunities. We are committed to children, youth, mission and education for all ages, as well as spiritual care in all the seasons of life.

All are invited and welcomed to be part of the FUMC community. Please contact the church office for more information.
