As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.

United Methodist Foundational Documents
Several documents are considered "standards" of doctrine, forming the foundation of what United Methodists believe.
With many other Protestants, we recognize the two sacraments in which Christ himself participated: baptism and the Lord's Supper.
