We Believe In The Gospel

United Methodists are present in more than 100 countries, speaking many languages and representing diverse cultures, and are 12 million members strong, but our 43,000 local congregations all share:

  • A Wesleyan mission and ministry,
  • A rich history,
  • A dedication to service and outreach,
  • And a passion for following Jesus through worship, prayer and the study of Scripture.

     We are guided by scripture, tradition, reason and Christian experience, as reflected in our Book of Discipline.  The book….

     “sets forth the theological grounding of The United Methodist Church in biblical faith.  It makes clear the United Methodist Church is an inclusive society without regard to ethnic origin, economic condition, gender, age, or the disabilities of its constituents”…..it affirms connectionisms as a distinctive mark of United Methodism, “makes clear the global character of the church’s mission and declares interdependence with other Christian bodies both in spirit and cooperation.  It affirms with (our founder) John Wesley that solitary religion is invalid and that Christ lays claim upon the whole life of those who accept him as Lord and Savior.”
