Our Beliefs

John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.

Zoar, as a United Methodist Church, has an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness.

We believe that God created human beings in God’s image. As humans we can choose to accept or reject a relationship with God. We do believe that all humans need to be in relationship with God in order to be fully human.
When we sin, or turn our backs on God and God's expectations for us, we break our relationship with God. Through God's grace, we are restored and reunited with God, with creation, and with the persons God intended us to be.

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today. It is the mission of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We believe that the church is called to worship God and to support those who participate in its life as they grow in faith.
