The Essentials: What Do We Believe and Why?

Rev. Josh Attaway | Edmond Camus

When talking about what we should believe as Methodists, John Wesley famously said, “In the essentials, unity; in the non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” So, what are the essential beliefs of our faith around which we should have unity? By looking at the Apostles Creed, one of the oldest statements of faith of the Christian Church, we will dive deeper into our beliefs as Christians about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Church, and more.

Rev. Josh Attaway is the Campus Pastor at St. Luke’s Edmond. Josh graduated from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois with a Masters in Divinity with a Concentration in Congregational Leadership. Josh is married to his wife, Brittany, and enjoys playing golf, traveling, reading, and adventure.

Fall 2018 - What it Means to be Methodist

How we can disagree over issues, yet still live and serve together as the family of faith.

What are the most important issues for Methodists? How do we handle differences of opinion within the family of faith? Are there certain things Methodists have to believe? John Wesley, the founder of Methodism said, “The distinguishing marks of a Methodist are not his opinions of any sort… as to all opinions which do not strike at the root of Christianity, we think and let think.” There are issues that have caused disagreements within many mainline denominations. Sometimes you might hear beliefs ascribed by some United Methodists that don’t represent your own beliefs. It is important that we know what we believe as individuals and as a family of faith. However, there is a difference between what we believe and our faith. Beliefs are our thoughts as to specific issues. The beliefs might be shaped by our upbringing, our culture, or the way we interpret scripture. Faith is the trust we have in God’s constant good will toward us as the children of God. Join us as we discuss some of the more divisive issues that churches can face and how we can still live together with respect.
