  • Our Statement of Faith

    Dandridge First United Methodist Church has a 200-year heritage of responding to Christ's call in East Tennessee.  We are committed to maintaining alignment with our core values as disciples and our Biblical beliefs, now and into the future, as we work to fulfill God's calling.  We are called to be disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world; to act in accordance with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; and to rely on the Holy Scripture as our foundation and as the inspired work of God.  We hold true to the doctrine and traditions represented by the 2016 UMC Book of Discipline.
