As a United Methodist Church, Cannon shares many core convictions with other Christian traditions and denominations. Those shared convictions are found in two ancient Christian confessions of faith: the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed.  Both creeds have a triune structure, bearing witness to the common Christian belief that God’s very being is a community of love (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).

In addition to the ancient creeds, we affirm our United Methodist Articles of Religion, which include a number of subjects not addressed by the creeds. For example, the Articles include statements about the sufficiency of Scripture, the nature of the Church, the sacraments (baptism and communion), original sin, salvation (justification and sanctification), good works, and civil government.

Finally, and more personally, what does any of that mean for life today?

Just this:

We believe that the gospel, the good news about Jesus, engages our hearts and our lives, transforming our relationships with others and with God.  In other words, God did not send Jesus to get us into heaven. Instead, he sent Jesus to get heaven into us and on the earth.  Therefore, we are following Jesus through the world as it is toward the world as it will be. We would love to share the journey with you!
