North Decatur is a church which operates in the United Methodist tradition of celebrating God's grace as vitally important to faith. Grace is a much larger word than it lets on! The Catholic writer Thomas Merton says that grace is God's own life, shared with us. That's a pretty good definition, really. Grace means that God loves us, even when we think we're too messed up for anybody to even like us. God's grace and love are so strong that nothing can separate us from that love: nothing we can do and nothing that can be done to us. And that grace is so powerful that it makes us want to share it with others!
Like most other churches operating in the Christian tradition, we hold a pretty standard set of beliefs about God and the Bible. But just because they are standard doesn't mean they aren't important! You can learn more about our Christian roots here.
