The United Methodist Church was formed with the merger of the Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church in 1968.
United Methodists trace their spiritual heritage back to 18th-century evangelical leaders
John and Charles Wesley, Jacob Albright and Philip William Otterbein.
United Methodists speak many languages and live in many countries
with many different cultures, ethnic traditions, national histories and understandings of Christian faith and practice.
We live the promise we made the day we joined the United Methodist church.....
the promise of our prayers and our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness.
Our mission is "to give of ourselves so that others may know Jesus Christ."
