Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible is God’s written Word, divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit; it is infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and life.


We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death for our sins, in His bodily resurrection, and His personal, visible return to earth to reign in righteousness and glory.


We believe in the Holy Spirit and His work of conviction, regeneration, and sanctification, who indwells every believer, equipping them to live a godly life.


We believe in the necessity of new birth, in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and the importance of life fully committed to the will of God in Christ.


We believe the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, called to be God’s redeemed people.

Warm Beach Camp History

Back in 1956

Warm Beach Camp was originally developed in 1956 as a ministry of the Pacific Northwest Free Methodist Church. While remaining an integrated auxiliary of the Free Methodist Church, Warm Beach Camp incorporated as a separate, private 501(c-3) non-profit organization in 1995 and still maintains a corporate mission and values reflective of our heritage.

And Today ...

The Warm Beach Story continues to unfold as today's people find their place of rest, renewal, and reconnection at Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center.
