United Methodist History

The United Methodist Church was created on April 23, 1968,  when  The Evangelical United Brethren Church, and The Methodist Church merged. The denomination  shares a common history and heritage with other Methodist and Wesleyan bodies. The lives and ministries of John Wesley (1703-1791) and of his brother, Charles (1707-1788), mark the origin of their common roots.
