First Methodist Alvin has always been a traditional, Wesleyan congregation with a mission of "Making Disciples of Jesus Christ." First Methodist Alvin has not wavered from this mission since it's creation. Today First Methodist Alvin seeks to advance its ministry by upholding the traditional, apostolic witness of Holy Scripture as authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

What We Believe?

The historic Christian faith, as its documented holy scripture, offers a transforming relationship with the living God through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. It cannot be replaced, reinvented or re-written by modern individuals who seek to make her or his own version of personal truth, morality, and understanding of righteousness. 

Articles of Religion

The Articles of Religion are the official, historic doctrinal statements of Methodism, as abridged by John Wesley. 

The Apostle's Creed

Considered one of the earliest the documents written by early followers of Jesus; the Apostles’ Creed is crafted in the form of a confessional statement of Christian belief. This creed has withstood the test of time, as it outlines what it means to be a Christian in one of the simplest and yet meaningful forms. Today this creed is recited aloud in worship at First Methodist Alvin.

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; and 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, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick 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.
