United Methodist Church [UMC] https://www.okumc.org/about


Mission Statement

“To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” The statement reveals the basics that constitute UMC. They include:  Love of God and neighbor. Communication while developing genuine community with each other.

We believe in God, Creator of the world; and in Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of creation. We believe in the Holy Spirit, through whom we acknowledge God's gifts, and we repent of our sin in misusing these gifts to idolatrous ends.

In the study of knowledge, methodism refers to the epistemological approach where one asks "How do we know?" before "What do we know?


The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit convinces the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. It leads men through faithful response to the gospel into the fellowship of the Church. It comforts, sustains, and empowers the faithful and guides them into all truth.

The Holy Spirit works in us by peeling away our sinful characteristics and replacing them with godly characteristics. His work in us makes us more and more like Jesus. Just as Acts 1:8 mentions, the Holy Spirit empowers Christians to be effective witnesses for Jesus Christ.
