The United Methodist Church

We all share a faith in Jesus Christ, but The United Methodist Church encourages us to think for ourselves, so we don’t necessarily share the same opinions about every faith issue or social concern. And there are lots of us: 8.5 million United Methodists live in the U.S., and 1.5 million more worldwide, with the largest growth in membership occurring in Africa and the Philippines.

Why Church is Important to You?
(from Purpose Driven Life) ...God's purposes for his church are identical to his five purposes for you.

  • Worship helps you focus on God;
  • Fellowship helps you face life's problems;
  • Discipleship helps fortify your faith;
  • Ministry helps find your talents;
  • Power helps fulfill your mission. There is nothing else on earth like the church!

The Bible says we are put together, joined together, built together, members together, heirs together, fitted together, and held together and will be caught up together. (1 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 2:21, 22; 3:6; 4:16; Colossians 2:19; 1 Thessalonians 4:17)
