What We Believe
First United Methodist Church, Tallassee is committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ, by connecting people to the Word of God and engaging them in ministry here and throughout the world.
The beliefs and teachings of the United Methodist Church are “grounded in Scripture, informed by Christian tradition, enlivened in experience, and tested by reason.”
[taken from The Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church – 2004, Copyright 2004 by The United Methodist Publishing House.]
Our profession of faith is The Apostle’s Creed:
We believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth
and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead and buried. 
The third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic* church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
