As United Methodists, we make an incredible impact on the world. Together, we serve millions of people across the globe, support thousands of local ministries, and advocate for the “least of these.” Generosity is the heart of our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world!
The #BeUMC campaign is an opportunity for us to join together and remember who we are as United Methodists. This grassroots effort weaves us together through our powerful stories of how we are living out our faith. The hope is that as many United Methodists as possible will share their personal experiences, values and hopes of why they continue to #BeUMC.
We continue to have opportunities to live into our mission and to strive to be the church our communities so desperately need. The #BeUMC campaign calls us to embrace our Wesleyan heritage and envision a promising future. Through generosity and giving to the United Methodist Church, you support our continued efforts to achieve our common goals:
LIVING THE GOSPEL The UMC is founded on a Wesleyan theology of grace, anchored in Scripture and based in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and the continuing movement of the Holy Spirit.
DISCIPLE MAKING First and foremost, we are dedicated to the mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world in the tradition of John Wesley. We are disciple-making, faithful, deeply rooted, grounded in Scripture, Christ-centered people of God.
BELONGING AND INCLUSION All belong and are loved in the UMC. All are heard, respected and engaged. All are free to develop their personal relationship with God and to serve fully in the ministry of Jesus Christ. We are diverse, justice-seeking, resilient, welcoming people of God.
