What We Believe

Our mission is to make disciples for Christ and share God’s grace to a diverse community.


Kyle United Methodist Church is a community church that has been worshiping together since 1880, and was actually established before the City of Kyle!

The United Methodist Church was founded by John Wesley as a movement to spread holiness in heart and life, and so we value not just personal devotion to God, but also social holiness, and we live that out by active work in the community to help those in need and to work for justice.


Grace, the unlimited, unearned love of God, is at the heart of our belief system. We believe that this love comes from God, our creator, who seeks relationship with us. We believe it was manifest in Jesus Christ, who as fully human and fully God reconciled broken humanity, and so we seek to study and follow his ways. We believe that grace is experienced as the Holy Spirit, God poured out on all people, allowing us to grow in love. The Apostles’ Creed expresses our core beliefs as Christians.


The Worldwide United Methodist Church has been in much-publicized disagreement about marriage, ordination, and inclusion of LGBTQ+ persons. While this is ongoing, Kyle United Methodist Church has for some time been committed to being a safe, welcoming place for all people. As Christians, we believe that we are one in the Spirit, and so we are committed to racial reconciliation, the full participation of people of all genders and sexual orientations, and peace among all people.

What we Believe as United Methodists

The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of the Father, and will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic* church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

*(In this usage, the word “catholic” means universal.)
