Who we are
United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. We trace our roots to John Wesley who lived in England in the 18th century.
John Wesley and the early Methodists were particularly concerned about inviting people to experience God’s grace and to grow in their knowledge and love of God through disciplined Christian living. They placed primary emphasis on Christian living and on putting faith and love into action.
This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as “practical divinity” has continued to be a hallmark to United Methodism today.
