Asbury Church is affiliated with the United Methodist Church. The Methodist Church from its founding has had a pretty amazing history. The denomination unintentionally started with a man named John Wesley. John definitely wasn’t a perfect guy but he did some pretty great things. Wesley stressed things like social justice AND personal salvation at the same time…something not often done by the church then or today.
United Methodists share a common heritage with other Christians, holding to the historic essentials of the Christian faith which are summed up in the Apostles Creed:
We believe in God the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and will come again to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
