As a people of God engaged in a spiritual journey and bound by a common hope, we at Wallingford United Methodist Church stand in the stream of the Christian Faith, witnessing to our experience of God’s grace, which we have seen in Jesus Christ.
* We believe in a creating God, in the goodness of all God’s creation, and in the sacred worth of every person.
* We follow a living Christ, who reveals the love of God to us and shows us what it means to be fully human.
* We trust the Holy Spirit, who courts us to stand in right relationship with God, assures us of God’s presence with us, and works in us to bring God’s purposes to birth.
