What We Believe

What do United Methodists believe?

First United Methodist Church of Royse City is part of the worldwide United Methodist Church. This is a brief overview of our basic beliefs:

  • We believe in God the Father and Creator of us all.
  • We believe in Jesus, God’s only begotten Son, whom God sent as our teacher and example.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ has redeemed humanity.
  • We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables each of us to become more like Jesus.
  • As believers, we claim these three: God, the Father; Jesus, the Savior; and the Holy Spirit. These three are known as the Trinity.
  • All of these are gifts of God’s grace, God’s love for not only you and me, but for all of His children.

Come help us to grow and develop in and through God’s grace. You can find more about the United Methodist Church and what Methodists believe at www.umc.org.
