What We Believe

Emory holds to the historic Christian faith as illuminated by the Bible and passed down by the Church. We worship One God in Three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that God lovingly created the world and re-creates it by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. By grace, we are forgiven of sin and baptized into the new life Christ offers—a life of love, justice, and mercy. We affirm the ancient confessions of faith known as the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed.


As United Methodists, we share in Methodism’s rich theological heritage, witness, and mission around the world. We claim the core beliefs of the UMC (you can read about those here). Among those beliefs are a commitment to social holiness and a belief in putting our faith into action.

United Methodist congregations are connected to a large and diverse network of churches locally and around the world. We are a part of the Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference under the leadership of Bishop Latrelle Easterling.

Our Mission

We are passionate about making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
