What is the Church?

The church is the body of Christ—all the people who accept Christ’s gift of salvation and follow Christ’s teachings. It is much more than a building. In the Bible, “church” never refers to a building. It always refers to people—the people who follow Jesus Christ. Being part of the body of Christ means we are called to be continually shaped to be more and more like Christ. This happens by letting the Word of God, the Bible , guide our faith and our lives,...

Our Human Nature

Methodists distinguish between human nature as it was created, and human nature as it exists now. Humans were created in the image of God, having reason and will. They filled a place in the order of creation that stretched from God and the angels on one end through humans down to lower organisms and inanimate objects at the other. As such, humans were in harmony with God and with creation, and in a position to mediate and distribute God's goodness through the rest of creation, but we fall... Read More

What is the Holy Spirit?

The Holy Spirit is God's present activity in our midst. When we sense God's leading, God's challenge, or God's support or comfort, we say that it's the Holy Spirit at work. In Hebrew, the words for  Spirit ,  wind , and  breath  are nearly the same. The same is true in Greek. In trying to describe God's activity among them, the ancients were saying that it was like God's breath, like a sacred wind. It could not be seen or held: "The wind... Read More

Who is Jesus?

In trying to find words to express their faith in Jesus, the New Testament writers gave him various names. Jesus was Master, Rabbi, Teacher. He was the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He was the Doorway to the sheepfold, the Light of the world, the Prince of Peace, and more. In the church's long tradition, scores of other names or titles have been given. Let's look at five of the most central biblical names for Jesus: Son of God We believe in Jesus as God's special child. We... Read More

Who is God?

When we say the Apostles' Creed, we join with millions of Christians through the ages in an understanding of God as a Trinity—three persons in one: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons. "God in three persons, blessed Trinity" is one way of speaking about the several ways we experience God. We also try to find adjectives that describe the divine nature. In our  Articles of Religion  and  Confession of Faith ,... Read More

Mental Health Resources

What will help you and me grow to be the healthiest people we can be? We firmly believe that facing whatever is “your challenge” is the best approach. We also realize we all learn and take in information differently – this list is by no means exhaustive. It is also not an endorsement as much as it is a beginning point of tools we found helpful in our mental wellness journeys. Scripture About Mental Health This is not an exhaustive list of biblical passages. There... Read More

Praying the Difficult Psalms

Pastor Nick McRae gives advice on how to pray the Psalms that aren't very easy to pray: I didn’t always love the Psalms. Not at all. For a long time I even avoided the Psalms because, honestly, I didn’t know what to do with them. Maybe you’ve been there, too. Maybe you’re there right now. I really struggled with the Psalms. Any given psalm I’d read might be absolutely beautiful, but then suddenly, out of nowhere, it would take a disturbing turn. Psalm... Read More

Seeing the Church in the Psalms

Can our Church community be found in the Psalms? Rev. Dr. Nick McRae walks us through this question: Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German pastor and theologian who opposed the evils of Hitler and the Nazi regime. Because of his courageous work, Bonhoeffer was tragically executed in a Nazi concentration camp only 14 days before the camp was liberated by US troops. Throughout his life, Bonhoeffer was devoted to Scripture as the word of God, and he had a special love for the Psalms. He understood... Read More
