The United Methodist Church is a global denomination that opens hearts, opens minds, and opens doors.

All of this is achieved through active engagement with our society.

The mission of The United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" continues to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.
