THE HISTORY OF THE
FIRST UNITED METHODIST
Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.
The United Methodist Church was formed when the Evangelical United Brethren Church and the Methodist Church merged in 1968. Both traditions have roots in the 1700s.
Today, The United Methodist Church is global, with more than 12 million members around the world. While our languages, cultures and nations of origin may differ, a common mission and history unite us in powerful ways.
Ordinary People Serving an Extraordinary God!
