WHAT WE BELIEVE

 
 

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

 
 

In the United Methodist Church, we believe that:

God is one God in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God’s son, Jesus, born to the virgin Mary, is God in human form. Jesus is simultaneously both fully human and fully divine.
 
All humans are sinners by nature. Sin separates us from God. We are powerless to save ourselves.
 
Jesus died on the cross as a way of atoning to God for our sinful nature. It is only through God’s grace that we are offered eternal salvation.
 
The Bible is the inspired word of God, and that it calls all Christians to use their gifts to spread the Good News of God’s mercy throughout the world.
 

The United Methodist Church celebrates two sacraments- Baptism and Holy Communion.

Baptism represents a commitment of the individual to Christ and a covenant of salvation between the individual and God.
 
Holy Communion represents the body and blood of Christ in his sacrifice to save humanity from its own sins. You do not have to be a member of New Horizon or any other church to receive the grace of God through the sacrament. Holy Communion is served to all ages as desired. We ask only that the recipient be a believer in Jesus Christ.
