The water of baptism may be administered by sprinkling, pouring, or immersion.Baptism is a symbol of repentance and inner cleansing from sin, a representation of the new birth in Christ Jesus and a mark of Christian discipleship.Logic and Reason - The most fundamental distinction of Methodist teaching is that people must use logic and reason in all matters of faith.

Jesus Christ - Jesus is truly God and truly man, God on Earth (conceived of a virgin), in the form of a man who was crucified for the sins of all people, and who was physically resurrected to bring the hope of eternal life.Whatever is not revealed in or established by the Holy Scriptures is not to be made an article of faith nor is it to be taught as essential to salvation.The Church - Christians are part of a universal church under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and must work with all Christians to spread the love and redemption of God.He comforts, sustains and empowers the faithful and guides them into all truth.The grace of God is seen by people through the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives and their world.The Lord's Supper is a representation of redemption, a memorial of the sufferings and death of Christ, and a token of love and union which Christians have with Christ and with one another. He is eternal, all-knowing, possessing infinite love and goodness, all-powerful, and the creator of all things.
