Our United Methodist Family

The United Methodist Church

United Methodists come in all sizes, shapes, colors, dispositions, outlooks and life stories, but share a unique history and faith perspective. Our members speak many languages, live in many countries, and share a common mission: to make disciples for the transformation of the world.

No matter how or where they serve Jesus Christ, United Methodists do God’s work in a unique structure—referred to as “the connection.”
