What We Believe

Kingswood Vision Statement

Kingswood UMC seeks to excel in being a hospital, school, and sending station with Jesus Christ.


Kingswood Mission Statement

Kingswood UMC seeks to embrace broken people and to offer healing and salvation experienced through Jesus Christ.  We teach the Christian life through the Bible. We train and send believers into the world as evangelists and missionaries to make disciples with Jesus Christ.


The Kingswood Experience

What does all this mean?  It means broken people are finding new beginnings and life through relationships with Jesus Christ and the Kingswood community.  It means followers of Jesus are learning the Bible and training in its truths and disciplines for victorious daily life.  It means people are praying, discovering, and being faithful to their unique placement and calling to change lives within and beyond the local congregation with Jesus Christ.


What We Believe

Five things are at the heart of all we believe.  First, we believe God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are one God and always operate as One.  God is always motivated by unconditional love for all people.

Second, we believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, the foundation and true source of all truth and revelation for living as God desires, and addresses every part and issue of life today.

Third, we believe everything promised in the Bible is true and can be experienced today by all persons who profess faith in Jesus Christ and open themselves to the indwelling and power of the Holy Spirit.

Fourth, we believe in loving relationships as described and defined in the Bible.  We believe in Jesus’ two Great Commandments which require us to love God first, love ourselves, and love every person with the same passion with which we love God and ourselves.

Fifth, we seek to excel in (not deify) the core practices of our Wesleyan heritage:  a) salvation only through faith in Jesus Christ; b) personal holiness through biblical study, spiritual disciplines, and accountability in small covenant groups; c) evangelism that changes lives through personal testimony, sharing the Gospel, and practicing the love and justice of Christ; and d) living a life of simplicity, faithfully demonstrating stewardship in all things, and expecting the coming of Jesus at any time.
