Transcript: Methodism Saints United Methodist Church (UMC) 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. Origins The United Methodist Church basis was started in 1735 by a man named John Wesley and his brother Charles. It officially became a denomination of the Christian faith in 1968 in Dallas, Texas. Today Methodism is the third largest Christian denomination in the world. 12 million people are members of the UMC. History Methodism is based off of three major beliefs: John Wesley People are all, by nature, "dead in sin," and, consequently, "children of wrath." They are "justified by faith alone." Faith produces inward and outward holiness. Beliefs of Other Issues in the UMC 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 Alcohol Capital Punishment Abortion Diversity in Beliefs 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 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. 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. 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. Military Service Gambling Homosexuality War 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. The church opposes gambling, believing it that feeds off of human greed and which invites people to place their trust in possessions rather than in God. Also gambling can become addictive. When something becomes addictive the UMC believes that it becomes a distraction from God. The United Methodist Church maintains that war is incompatible with Christ's message and teachings. Therefore, the Church rejects war as an

Transcript: Methodist is a group of historically related denominations of protestant christianity which derive their inspiration from the life and teachings of John Wesley. the methodist church began with a group of men(john wesley and his brother) as a movement within the church of england found in 18th century. The church began with the wesley brothers founding the "holy club". this group of men would meet weekly and would speak about their holy life. they were called methodist's by their students due to the way they used to specific 'rule' and 'methods' to go about their religious affairs. john wesley has credit for the foundation of the evangelical movement known as Methodism. the people who follow this religion have 3 major beliefs: 1. people are all, by nature, 'dead in sin' and consequently, 'children of wrath'. 2. that they are justified by faith. 3. that faith produces inward and outward holiness. On the left is a picture of a Methodist church . on the right side there is the symbol that represents "the united methodist church" in methodism, they do have a authority and it is to teach and to preach about what they believe in. methodists have ministers rather than priests because they believe that by definition, priests are intermediary between people and the devine. Once methodists were seperated from the "anglican church" they have followed the same pattern and continue to do so. Origionally methodists were located in Great Britain. now they are located all over the world, including europe( Ireland, france, hungary, italy and Russia), latin america( mexico, caribbean, ant igua, st.bart's, jamacia and barbados), afirca( nigerea, ghana and south africa), Asia( china, india, malaysia and singapore, philippenes and south korea), north america( canada and united states) and oceania( australia, fiji, newzealand, samoan islans and tonga). mthodism is decreasing in great britain and north america, it coninues to grow in other places and it grows at a rapid pace the untited methodist church is the largest denomination within the methodist movement, which has about 80 million believers across the world. as of 2014, the worldwide membership of methodists was about 20 million. about 7.2 million of that population was in the united states and about 4.4 million of that population was in africa, asia and europe.

Transcript: Worship Type Methodism is known for its rich musical tradition. Singing is a big part of the Methodist Church service. Charles Wesley, brother of the church founder, was instrumental in writing some 6,000 hymns, and many other eminent hymn writers come from the Methodist tradition. Worship Format Date And Location Organization Basic Beliefs Sin: While human beings were intended to bear the image of God, all humans are sinners for whom that image is distorted. Sin estranges people from God and corrupts human nature such that we cannot heal or save ourselves Evangelism and mission Structure Council of Bishops The Council of Bishops gives general oversight of the ministry and mission of the church and spiritual leadership to the entire church connection. Composed of all active and retired bishops, the council meets as a group at least once a year.
