What We Believe
Aldersgate Renewal Ministries affirms four statements by the United Methodist Church to be our doctrinal statement:
- The Articles of Religion of the Methodist Church
- The Confession of Faith of the Evangelical United Brethren Church from the Book of Discipline
- Apostle's Creed
- Guidelines: The United Methodist Church and the Charismatic Movement
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit in Methodist Church History.
We believe in the example of John Wesley's life and ministry testifying to the work of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements through the Wesleyan framework.
We believe in sensitivity in discerning of the Holy Spirit, as God works differently through His children.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of the Father Almighty.
from thence he shall come again to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
