The official website of United Methodist Church will be helpful to answer questions about the Methodist church’s general mission, beliefs and recent church activities.
The mission of the United Methodist Church is to “make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Local churches provide the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs … So the mission of our congregation is to make disciples. This is a four-fold task….We could abbreviate our mission as one of welcoming-worshiping-nurturing-sending.” To read more about UMC’s mission, visit the Mission and Ministry page here.
Our Social Principles explain more fully how United Methodists are called to live in the world. For information on how the Methodist church stands in terms of social, economic, political & world communities and more, visit the Church & Society page here.
