Called to be a unifying, clarifying voice in a divided conversation & polarized culture*

You’re invited to the One Church Plan Rally on Saturday, February 23, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch (Park View Room), 7:30–9pm.

Uniting Methodists is a movement of Christ-centered, hope-filled United Methodists, uniting in Christ to make disciples for the transformation of the world. We challenge in love that which divides, and we offer to all people God’s saving grace that transforms the world.

Our movement bears witness to the holistic way of Jesus, offers a voice that clarifies and unifies our church, urges holiness as the rule for our relationships, calls for cooperation with Christ-like love and honest, humble conversation, and desire spiritual and structural unity in the church.

Uniting Methodists is a movement rather than an organization. As a movement we are striving for greater inclusion and genuine representation in pursuit of shared goals. The statements found on this website represent our current consensus about important questions before the church. We invite suggestions, critique, and engaging conversations from persons across the UMC. The Uniting Methodists Leadership Team views this work as iterative and certain to be added to and enhanced over time.
