Welcome to Ingleton Methodist Church, a vibrant family church which lives for the glory of God and the transformation of lives by the love and power of Jesus Christ.
WHO WE ARE.
We are an all-age local church made up of everyday people who seek to embrace our village and community with the love, hope and goodness of Jesus Christ.
At IMC we aim to create an encouraging atmosphere for those seeking to learn about and worship Jesus. The core belief of our church is that Jesus Christ is the One who gives us forgiveness, comfort and eternal hope. We believe that anyone can enjoy peace with God through Him.
We meet twice on a Sunday and have loads of things happening throughout the week.
BACK TO TOP
Our family friendly morning service features contemporary worship in an environment where people of all ages feel welcome and engaged.
Our evening services have more of a traditional feel but with open participation to all. Bible based teaching is always a key ingredient of our meetings.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
There is one God, the creator and ruler of the universe. He exists eternally in three distinct but equal persons –
the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. They are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although people have tremendous potential for good, they are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates humankind from God.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1, 2
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14, 15; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; Romans 1:3, 4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14, 15; Titus 2:13
Salvation is a gift from God to mankind. People can never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good works – only by trusting in Jesus Christ and God’s offer of forgiveness can they be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment a person receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under his control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is God’s word to all mankind. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture or error.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ.
Romans 6:3-5; Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:38-41; Ephesians 2:8-9; Matthew 28:19-20
ABOUT THE CHURCH
The universal Church is the body of which Christ is the head and to which all who are saved belong. It is made visible by local churches – congregations of believers who live in a committed relationship with each other for the purpose of worshipping God, Christian discipleship, pastoral care and evangelism.
Colossians 1:8; Romans 12:5; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Ephesians 4:12
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with him is eternal life.
John 3:16; John 2:25; John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 1 John 5:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46
