Some facts about the United Methodist Church...

  • The heart of United Methodism is a relationship with the living God through Jesus Christ and sharing the mission of God to redeem the world.
  • The United Methodist Church affirms a triune (three-in-one) God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Some United Methodists prefer less gender-specific language, so you may hear Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer.
  • An emphasis of The United Methodist Church is its connectional nature. Every United Methodist congregation is interconnected throughout the denomination and throughout the world.
  • The cross and flame is the official insignia of The United Methodist Church, and can be found in just about every county in the United States, along with nations in Africa, Europe and the Philippines.
  • Both men and women can be ordained (become clergy members) in The United Methodist Church.
