Good Samaritans Believe:


As Christians, we have found an approach to
God through the life and teachings of Jesus.

We take the Bible seriously and not literally.

We affirm our United Methodist heritage,
that reminds us we come to faith through
scripture, tradition, reason and experience.

We find truth and grace in the search for meaning
more than in absolute certainty.

We recognize the faithfulness of other people
who have different names for God.

We are stewards of God’s gifts of beauty revealed
in creation and human expression.

We believe that the sacraments of baptism and
communion are means of God’s love and grace,
open to all.

We affirm that the way we live our lives is the
fullest expression of what we believe.
