We at Fountain Park United Methodist Church believe in one almighty triune God, in three persons of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that Jesus Christ is God’s one unique son, fully God and fully man, and that He is the one Savior for the world and for each of us, as set forth in the Scriptures of the Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments.

IMG_1135Here at Fountain Park United Methodist Church (FPUMC) first and foremost follow the teachings in the Holy Bible, and we also support The Article of Religion of the Methodist Church and the Confession of Faith of the Evangelical United Brethren Church (EUB) as found in our denominations Book of Discipline.

The heritage of the church is EUB and the majority of the current membership is theologically conservative and evangelical.  When we say that our goal is to “faithfully proclaim Christ” we mean that we intend to proclaim in word, music, and action that Jesus Christ is the risen Lord and Savior who alone is the answer to the sins of the world. The Bible truthfully and faithfully tells us who Jesus is and how we can receive new life through Him and how we must then live to proclaim His love for the people He died to save.

We faithfully proclaim Christ when our thoughts, words, and deeds are based on Jesus’ example as seen in Scripture.  We are enabled to live faithfully by the inspiration and power of the Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of all who believe, and the Lord of life. He is the center of our lives and our church.
