A. OUR BELIEFS
The God we serve is the creator of everything that we see and don’t see, sustaining the universe as God works for the redemption of the entire world.
This God is Triune – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – and that God’s defining characteristic is love, as shown most clearly by Jesus’ willingness to die for us on the cross so that we might live with God and one another forever.
We are centered in Christ and based in the Bible. The Bible reveals the Word of God, holy and inspired. We interpret the Scriptures through reason, experience and tradition and seek to apply them to the life of following Jesus.
The eternal life God offers begins here and now, which is why a nominal faith is simply unacceptable.
God desires for us to be made new as we are formed into the likeness of Jesus, and in this renewed relationship, for us to experience an abundant life as we participate in God’s transformation of the world.
B. LIVING OUT OUR FAITH
As Christians, we are called to worship both as a church body and as individuals. Through worship, we are invited to authentically and creatively connect with God.
Christianity is meant to be lived out in community. Bold Spring UMC offers many different ways to be in relationship with other Christians, such as Bible studies, Connection Groups, Sunday school classes and Evangelism efforts within the community.
Bold Spring United Methodist members share the love of God in many different ministries and missions, responding to the needs of our world.
God invites us to participate in ministry in many different ways, and one of those ways is through the art of generous giving. At Bold Spring UMC we believe giving of our time, talents, and resources is a faith practice that helps us to live our our Christian calling more fully.
