The United Methodist Church in West Virginia

Who are United Methodists
in the West Virginia Conference?

The West Virginia Conference of The United Methodist Church 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.

Disciple-making: We are committed to making disciples who are grounded in the teachings and example of Jesus Christ.  Disciples of Jesus who live a life of ‘personal piety and social holiness,’ which is what makes us distinctively Wesleyan. 

Belonging – We embrace a Church that has uplifted our own lives and the lives of our friends, family, and those we cherish. We celebrate that God’s grace is not static but meets us where we are as we grow in love of God and neighbor.

We give thanks for The United Methodist Church where, when communion is celebrated, everyone is welcome at Christ’s table.

Connecting & Impactful –Through the power of the Holy Spirit, living and sharing the grace of Jesus Christ, we are committed to work for better health, education, child welfare, disaster recovery, and countless other efforts.

Our connectional nature means that we can accomplish much more together than alone to transform our communities and the world.

Experiencing God – We experience God through the outpouring of God’s mercy and grace. Whether our hands are raised in worship or at work alongside others, this experience of God transforms our own lives as well as the lives of others.
