The basic beliefs of Fredonia First United Methodist Church include:
  • Triune God. God is one God in three persons: God our Creator, God our Savior and God the Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost).
  • Scripture. The writings in the Old Testament and New Testament are the inspired word of God.
  • Sin. While human beings were intended to bear the image of God, all humans are sinners for whom that image is distorted. Sin estranges us from God and corrupts human nature such that we cannot heal or save ourselves.
  • Salvation through Jesus Christ. God's redeeming love is active to save sinners through Jesus'  atoning death.  We believe Christ also rose from the dead, showing the victory of sin and death.  Christ through the Holy Spirit is still in our lives every day.
  • Free will. Fredonia First UMC believes that people, while corrupted by sin, are free to make their own choices because of God's divine grace.
