The Pulaski Free Methodist Church is part of the Free Methodist Church USA. Following is a summary of our core beliefs based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. For greater detail and biblical references, please refer to the statements of belief for the Free Methodist Church USA at https://fmcusa.org/webelieve.
We believe in One Living God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are one in eternity, deity and purpose; everlasting; and of infinite power, wisdom and goodness. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
We believe the Bible is God's written word, uniquely inspired by the Holy Spirit. It bears unerring witness to Jesus Christ, the Living Word. The Bible has authority over all human life, teaches the truth about God, His creation, His people, His one and only Son, and the destiny of humankind. It teaches the way of salvation and faith.
Humans are created in the image of God as free moral persons and responsible to choose between good and evil, right and wrong. When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they distorted the human image in our very nature and fell out of relationship with God. This distorted human image exists from birth and causes everyone to be inclined to sin.
We believe that new life in Christ free from the guilt and penalty of sin is given to all who believe and turn away from sin. Christ alone offered the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the whole world, making possible a new and right relationship with God.
We believe in the church, the people of God, who exist to fulfill the purposes of God in Christ Jesus. The church is created by God the Father; Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the church; and the Holy Spirit is its life and power. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the kingdom of God established now in the hearts of believers, the return of Christ, at a time chosen by the Father, and our hope in the resurrection and eternal glory.
