United Methodists, a protestant branch of the Wesleyan tradition, place a strong emphasis on the importance of grace, faith, and service. We believe that salvation is received through faith in Jesus Christ and the acceptance of God's grace, which is freely given to all who believe. We also believe that good works and acts of service are important expressions of faith and a way to demonstrate God's love to others. We value spiritual growth and emphasize the importance of prayer, worship, and studying the Bible as means of deepening our relationship with God.
