Transcript: John and Charles Wesley went to America to teach the gospel to the American Indians in the colony of Georgia. In less than two years, the "Holy Club" disbanded. John Wesley returned to England and met with a group of clergymen he respected. He said "they appeared to be of one heart, as well as of one judgment, resolved to be Bible-Christians at all events; and, wherever they were, to preach with all their might plain, old, Bible Christianity". The ministers retained their membership in the Church of England. Though not always emphasized or appreciated in the Anglican churches of their day, their teaching emphasized salvation by God's grace, acquired through faith in Christ. Very quickly, these clergymen became popular, attracting large congregations. The nickname students had used against the Wesley's was revived; they and their followers became known as Methodists History John Wesley The UMC supports federal funding for research on embryos created for IVF that remain after the procreative efforts have ceased, if the embryos were provided for research instead of being destroyed, were not obtained by sale, and those donating had given prior informed consent for the research purposes. The UMC stands in "opposition to the creation of embryos for the sake of research" as "a human embryo, even at its earliest stages, commands our reverence." It supports research on stem cells retrieved from umbilical cords and adult stem cells, stating that there are "few moral questions" raised by this issue. The UMC does not see abortion as an acceptable practice. They uphold the sanctity of human life of both mother and child. Bearing a child is a gift from God. Because the church does not accept abortion they will strive to help members find feasible alternatives regardless of the mothers choice. Military Service Methodism is based off of three major beliefs: Saints Methodists believe in and accept diversity among their beliefs and others beliefs. The United Methodist Church allows for a wide range of theological and political beliefs. Many practicing United Methodists believe this flexibility is one of the UMC's strongest qualities. War The United Methodist Church's understanding of a "saint" is not unique among Protestants, yet differs significantly from the Roman Catholic view. Methodists do not have a process for electing people to sainthood. They do not pray to saints, nor do they believe that saints serve as mediators to God. The denomination considers all faithful Christians to be saints. Methodists also honor notable heroes and heroines of the Christian faith and look to these prominent saints as providing examples of holy living and commitment to Christ that are worthy of imitation. Such exemplary saints include martyrs, confessors of the Faith, evangelists, or important biblical figures such as Saint Matthew, Salvation Army Founder William Booth, African missionary David Livingstone and Methodism's revered founder John Wesley are among many cited as Protestant saints. The church condemns the death penalty, saying that it cannot accept retribution or social vengeance as a reason for taking human life. The Church also holds that the death penalty falls unfairly and unequally upon people including the poor, the uneducated, ethnic and religious minorities, and persons with mental and emotional illnesses. In the bible Jesus calls upon his followers instead of taking out a mans eye if he takes out yours to turn the other cheek. Methodism Gambling The UMC does not completely abolish alcohol from members lives but they do suggest avoidance of it. They see drinking as dangerous. It is disliked because the UMC sees alcohol as disrespecting the body God blessed you with. In fact in the Holy Sacrament of Communion the church uses grape juice instead of wine, also opening the holy table to people of all ages. The United Methodist Church has a strong history of disagreement about the topic of homosexuality. The United Methodist book of discipline states that the church "affirm[s] that all persons are individuals of sacred worth, created in the image of God" and encourages United Methodists to be in ministry with and for all people. Therefore the church is called to accept all who wish to be a part of the church. However Jesus Christ specifically stated that marriage is to be between one man and one woman. So the UMC is opposed to same sex marriage. The majority of church members are also opposed to homosexual dating and intercourse, being that sex is only allowed within marriage and homosexuals cant get married. Stem Cell Research Capital Punishment Beliefs of Other Issues in the UMC United Methodist Church (UMC) Pornography The United Methodist Church maintains that war is incompatible with Christ's message and teachings. Therefore, the Church rejects war as an instrument of national foreign policy, to be employed only as a last resort in the prevention of such evils as genocide, brutal suppression of human rights, and
