Our Beliefs

Out of the Box is a member of the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Traditionally, we have emphasized the following.

  • God will comfort, guide, and forgive every person, no matter who they are or what they’ve done.
  • The Bible is the word of God, and the foundation of our beliefs.
  • Jesus, the son of God, died on the cross for all everyone.
  • Serving others and Christian faith go hand in hand.
  • God loves everyone and wants every person to experience the joy, peace, and power of living in relationship with him.
  • People need a community of grace for their spiritual journey—a place where they are loved and accepted before they ever clean up or straighten up.
