Baptism
 

Baptism is an act of God through the grace of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. It is the beginning of a lifelong journey of faith. In the United Methodist Church, we believe in both believer’s and infant baptism. While in believer’s baptism one is professing her or his own faith in Jesus Christ, we believe God is faithful even when one is unable to make that profession, and will guide an infant throughout the years to someday profess a faith of her or his own. This happens in part through the witness of those who vow to be guides in the journey to faith, including the congregation and members of her or his family. If you would like to know more about baptism, or would like to be baptized, contact either Pastor Robbie Scott or Pam Hitchcock at 937-698-4401.

Membership
 
Membership in the United Methodist Church is considered an active commitment to follow Christ and support the ministries of Hoffman United Methodist in particular, and the United Methodist denomination in general, through your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness in order to make disciples for the transformation of the world. So all can be aware of the “distinctives” of United Methodism amongst other Christian communities, there is a short series of classes offered periodically for those considering joining as members at Hoffman UMC. Being a member is not required to share in fellowship, communion, or in many of our areas of service. Some positions of leadership, however, do require church membership. If you have more questions, or would like to enroll in our next class, please contact Pam Hitchcock at 937-698-4401.
What We Believe

As United Methodists, we affirm the faith shared by Christians across the globe, with emphasis placed on God’s grace and Christian living. John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This continues to be one of the key elements of modern day United Methodism. 

We believe God our creator has always desired to be in relationship with human beings, and that every human being is a reflection of God, and has great worth.
 

Ultimately, we believe that relationship was made possible through God when He sent His son, Jesus, the Christ, to be born and raised on earth. We believe Jesus’ death, remembered on Good Friday, is sufficient for the sins of the world, and provides forgiveness for any sin we have committed. We believe that Jesus rose from the dead, celebrated on Easter, and that all who put their trust in Him have a promise of resurrection someday, to a home being prepared for us by Him.

Once we accept that forgiveness, the Holy Spirit begins a work inside of us, making our hearts more similar to Christ’s, as well as giving us gifts to equip us for ministering to and for others, which brings us to the Church, sometimes called “the body of Christ.” The church is not a building, but a fellowship of imperfect human beings who encourage and equip one another for our primary task, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

We believe you fit into that work, and that God sees great potential in you. While we believe God has a plan and purpose for each of us, we also believe we have free will. Bad things happen to good people, and that is not God’s will, but part of the reminder that this life is not heaven.

We believe the Bible is inspired by God, shared by human beings so others could be more aware of the mind of God, and can know what pleases Him.
