The official United Methodist doctrine is that God is one God in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Apostles’ Creed: “I believe in God the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth,…And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,…I believe in the Holy Spirit…”
We seek to extend the ministry and mission of Jesus Christ. All Christians are called to be ministers. The word minister means servant. We are, therefore, under a mandate given by Jesus Christ, “…To go into all the world and make disciples (Matthew 28:19).”
In the year 1853, Methodism established a new field of activity known as Wesley Chapel, located in the Niskey Lake section of Fulton County, Georgia. Among the charter members were David Waits, John Waits and Sidney Robins.
At Ben Hill we believe in discipleship. The scriptures tell us that disciples are followers of Jesus Christ and committed to Christ’s mission of love and are willing to make following, being in fellowship, and working for Him their priority (Luke 14:25-27).
