Here are some methodist beliefs and practices of the church, which can help give you a better understanding.
Baptism is a sacrament or ceremony where the person is anointed with water which symbolises them being brought into the community. The water can be sprinkled, poured or immersed, which can help create a symbolic representation of inner cleansing and rebirth. A true methodist would believe that baptism is God’s gift to us and can be performed as soon as possible.
There are many sacraments of communion when any person is trying to partake in your body and blood symbolically. They acknowledge it to have redemption power and is a memorial of his suffering and death. They take this communion to be a token of love and union that christ has over one and another.
Methodists believe that all Christians are supposed to believe that God is one, true and holy. He has always existed and will forever continue to grow. He is the one who is all-knowing and powerful, who possesses infinite love and goodness as he is our creator.
This is one belief that people respect is the fact that God is three persons in one who is distinct and inseparable, eternally and one who has the true essence and power.

The was crucified for all sins of people, and he was the one who was physically resurrected to bring back the hope of eternal life. He is one saviour who will come to his followers, and it is by him that all men will be judged.
