We are a United Methodist Church which means we are part of a church that has and is still evolving. Our first church community was started in America in 1784 and has undergone membership growth, denominational divisions and interdenominational mergers.
We are currently a worldwide church with a collective membership of 7.7 million members in 43,000 local churches. With each congregation being a reflection of our diversity, we do have common foundational beliefs.

Holy Covenant United Methodists Believe:
Affirmation of Faith
This statement of faith was written by our founding members over 45 years ago and it inform who we are as a community of faith.
We, as free and committed members of Christ’s body,
are a community that proclaims the living presence of our Lord.
We are striving to express our love, hope, acceptance and dedication to the principle of Christianity.
Because we are a holy covenant, we are receptive to all persons,
advocates of those in need, and committed to serving through action and acceptance
as Christ served and accepted all people.
We believe our relationship with God is an awakening
through Scripture, Tradition, Experience and Reason; and,
is enriched in the warmth of fellowship and worship.
We are free to differ in love and understanding;
free to seek and find truth, and
obligated to share truth that all people might be free,
God being our guide.
