What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of The Central Region Conference of the Free Methodist Church and are based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in, and flows out of, these Biblical doctrines.

Below are the main points of our beliefs.


There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. God is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.


God is revealed through Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, as well as through the Holy Scriptures, all of creation itself, and through the ongoing witness of the Holy Spirit as it continues to lead the Church into all truth.


All humans, both female and male, are created in God's image for God's glory. No matter what women and men may do, they retain this imago Dei and are worthy of dignity and respect as persons worthy of redemption and renewal.


Whenever humans choose to not obey God, they cease to be what they were made to be and become distorted images of God. Rather than reflect the glory and will of the Lord, they are bent in upon themselves and reflect their own desires and wishes. Such break in our fellowship with God damages ourselves and our relationship with others, and leads away from the eternal life we were created to enjoy with God and creation forever.


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross for our transgressions, not to convince God to forgive us but rather to demonstrate to the world the extent to which God would go to redeem everyone. God raised Jesus Christ from the dead and now, by grace, offers the free gift of eternal life to all who, by faith, accept Him as Savior and follow Him as Lord. This is why salvation is found in Christ alone.
