What is a Free Methodist?
We are first and foremost a Kingdom people. Yet throughout church history God has raised up distinct movements like ours to enrich the larger body of Christ. . . We call it The Free Methodist Way.
LIFEGIVING HOLINESS (A Better Way Of Living)
God’s call to holiness was never meant to be a burden, but a gift that liberates us for life that is truly life by delivering us from the destructive power of sin.
LOVE-DRIVEN JUSTICE (Communicating Value)
Love is the way we demonstrate God’s heart for justice by valuing the image of God in all men, women, and children, acting with compassion toward the oppressed, resisting oppression, and stewarding Creation.
CHRIST-COMPELLED MULTIPLICATION (Growth & Impact)
The Gospel of Jesus Christ, the good news message He proclaimed, the life He lived, and the ministry He modeled — set into motion a redemptive movement destined to fill the whole earth.
CROSS-CULTURAL COLLABORATION (Purpose & Partnership)
From the beginning, God’s intent was to have a people from every nation, culture and ethnicity, united in Christ and commissioned to carry out His work in the world.
GOD-GIVEN REVELATION (TRUTH)
We hold unwaveringly to our conviction that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and our final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.
(Matthew 22:37-38 NIV)
And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
(Matthew 22:39-40 NIV)
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything
I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
(Matthew 28:19-20 NIV)
