ABOUT US

The East End Methodist Chapel is the oldest standing Methodist Chapel in the Virgin Islands.  From 1810 the chapel was used for worship, day school and community centre, where almost every social activity in the East End / Long Look villages took place.  

 

Usual church functions included worship services, Sunday School, prayer meetings, baptisms, weddings, missionary meetings, revival services, tea meetings and harvest festivals.  It has been the venue for activities like concerts and plays, civic ceremonies etc.

What do we believe in?

As Methodists we believe:-

 

  • that there is only one true God

  • Jesus died and rose for our sins

  • there are 3 persons in the Godhead; the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, and these three are one

  • that all men can be saved

  • that all men may be saved

  • that all may know themselves saved

  • that all may be saved to the uttermost

  • in the Apostles Creed

 

 

 

What is the Apostles' Creed?

 

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of Heaven and earth.  I believe in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord.  He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified died and was buried.  He descended to the dead.  On the third day He rose again.  He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Amen.

What are the duties of a member of the Methodist Church?

 

In the Church:

A member is committed to worship, Holy Communion, fellowship and service, Prayer and Bible Study, and responsible giving.

 

In the world:

A member is committed to the working out of his/her faith in daily life, the offering of personal service in the community, the Christian use of his/her resources, and the support of the Church in its total world mission.

How did the Methodist Church arise?

 

Following an experience in which he received an assur­ance of his own salvation, John Wesley felt called by God to an itinerant preaching ministry.  With the support and help of other like-minded clergy and lay people, he preached in churches, in homes and in the open air, offering to his hearers the same salvation and assurance that he had experienced himself.  

 

Those who responded to his preaching, he organised into religious societies, divided into classes, each with its own leader. He ap­pointed helpers and assistants (later itinerant preachers and superintendents) to have oversight of the societies, which were grouped in circuits. The affairs of the societies were regulated by an annual Conference of preachers. Although it was not John Wesley's intention that Method-ism should separate from the Church of England by the time of his death it had become a distinct church.
