Grounded in Scripture
John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, talked about the Bible as "the book of God" given to us "to find the way to heaven."
As we read, study and meditate upon Scripture, our relationship with God in all three persons is deepened, nourished, strengthened.
While this is true for us as individuals, the Bible also unites us as a church. As we read and study in group settings, we are drawn closer, learning to honor and respect one another and our unique cultures and backgrounds.
As United Methodists, we understand the Bible as essential to our relationship with God and one another.
