We believe in God. He is powerful, loving, and involved in the world. God came to earth in the person of Jesus – who was a real human, and also really God. Jesus’ life is our model, his death is our restoration, and his resurrection is our hope. The Holy Spirit is the part of God that comforts, directs, and empowers us to live lives of worth for God’s kingdom.
God’s grace can restore any sin and God’s love is available to every single person. As we come to embrace God’s love for us, we are called to change our allegiance from whatever controls us over to God’s kingdom – that is repentance. We are then called to live lives worthy of the love God grants us: by respecting God’s will for our lives, by helping and serving others around us, and by telling people that they can be free in Jesus, too.
God gave us the Bible to instruct us, encourage us, challenge us, and guide us. It is the foundation of how we live our lives, and so we study it and cherish it.
As a United Methodist church we follow the spirit and beliefs of the Wesleyan theological family. John Wesley followed “Three Simple Rules”: 1. Do no harm. 2. Do good. 3. Stay in love with God. In doing this Wesley believed that Scripture was the primary authority to which we model our lives and we use Experience, Reason, and Tradition to guide us on our Spiritual journey.
We invite you to come and participate in the mission and ministry of McCutchanville Community Church as we share Jesus Christ through our church with the world. Together “we work out our salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in us to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” Philippians 2:12-13
