What we believe

At Guyton UMC we love the Lord and our active prayer ministry testifies to our belief in the power of prayer. As United Methodists we hold to the traditional Doctrinal Standards that root us in the theology of John and Charles Wesley. Those Doctrinal Standards are: the Methodist Articles of Religion, the Standard Wesley Sermons, and John Wesley's Notes on the New Testament. These standards affirm for us that our loving God is three-in-one: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
