What We Believe

Highland is United Methodist 

The United Methodist Church is founded on a Wesleyan theology of grace, anchored in Scripture, and based in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and the continuing movement of the Holy Spirit. Our congregation is committed to being a welcoming and inclusive family of faith that is open for all people, without regard to their age, economic class, educational level, gender identity, marital status, mental ability, nationality, physical ability, race, or sexual orientation.

A wonderful way to learn more about who United Methodists are and what they believe is to hear some of the stories being shared through the #BeUMC campaign. (Check it out here or look it up on social media!)


These testimonies from fellow United Methodists here in the North Carolina Conference (the eastern half of the state) do a great job of painting a picture of who we are as a connectional church denomination.
