What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

We are a worldwide family of churches (a denomination), over a million strong.

A few things about us…
The Bible is foundational for faith and life.

Our understanding of the Bible includes belief that:
  • God calls us to live a new, transformed life as we follow Jesus (holy and whole)
  • God calls us to be agents of change in our world (social justice)
  • God calls and gifts both women and men to all levels of leadership (we ordain women and are egalitarian)
  • Jesus offers His new life to all who will receive
  • The Holy Spirit is active today, and guides each follower of Jesus and His Church
  • We believe all people are equally created in the image of God, regardless of race, ethnicity, economic status, & gender
We are connectional. 
We are connected in community to one another. Both clergy and non-clergy (“laity”) participate in ministry and leadership. The local church and pastor(s) is (are) responsible to the regional Conference, which in turn is responsible to the national denomination. We submit to one another.
We have freedom on styles of worship as well as local church structure. The Genesis Conference has highly contemporary mega churches, small traditional rural churches,  charismatic churches, liturgical churches… and everything in between.
Our mission, vision, and what we are working towards in the Free Methodist Church USA includes:


To love God, love people and make disciples.


Together we will win people to Jesus Christ, establish them in their faith, and train them for ministry to the world and leadership among God's People.
