James 2:24, 26 says, " You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only...For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. " The purpose of Methodist "baptism" (sprinkling) is to join the Methodist Church.What do Methodist believe about the Bible?
Methodists also believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ and that he died for the sins of mankind. Accordingly, they believe the only forgiveness for the sins of mankind comes from belief in Jesus, and mankind's salvation cannot come from good deeds or anything other than faith in Jesus.Do Methodists believe that Jesus is God?
Methodists believe faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for salvation, but do not regard the Methodist church as necessary for salvation. Methodists believe that people can know when they are saved. Catholics believe that no one on earth can be assured of their salvation, apart from a special revelation from God.
