What makes you proud to #BeUMC?

#BeUMC honors the core values that connect the people of The United Methodist Church (The UMC). We are reclaiming our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

The UMC is founded on a Wesleyan theology of grace, anchored in Scripture, and based in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and the continuing movement of the Holy Spirit.

The #BeUMC campaign is built upon powerful stories of United Methodists living their faith. We celebrate what draws us to The UMC, the revival we find there, and what we aspire to be.

Share your story! The full story of The UMC reflects each one of us. Consider our common roots, how you and your congregation have been renewed, and your answer to the question, “Why am I United Methodist?” Then, post on your preferred social media platform using the hashtag #BeUMC.
