UMC Mission and Connectional System

Today, the United Methodist denomination continues to be organized in a “connectional” system, which “enables us to carry out our mission in unity and strength” (Book of Discipline, ¶ 701). Every local church is linked to an interconnected network of organizations that join together in mission and ministry, allowing us to accomplish far more than any one local church or person could alone.  Learn more.

THE MISSION OF THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH IS TO MAKE
DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD.

 

The mission of The United Methodist Church is to “Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world” (Matt. 28:18-20; Matt. 22:36-40). This mission is achieved through vital congregations that equip and empower people to be disciples of Jesus Christ in their homes and communities around the world.

Our four areas of focus are:

  • Seeking Health and Wholeness for All
  • Overcoming Poverty Together
  • Making New Disciples in New Places
  • Leading Where God Calls

Learn more about the four focus areas.
