Taiwan is an evangelistic, church-planting conference, dynamic and well-organized. The standard of living in Taiwan, however, deters from a commitment to a non-materialistic lifestyle. While experiencing membership growth within its boundaries, the Free Methodist Church in Taiwan has also been exercising vigorous missionary vision outside its borders. The evangelistic challenge is still great within Taiwan, and it is hoped that well-placed and focused missionaries will complement the goals of the Taiwan church as well as oversee its outreach in Myanmar. Holy Light Theological Seminary and China Evangelical Seminary are training centers for church leaders and missionaries. The first Free Methodist Vietnamese church was launched in Taipei on Easter Sunday 2008. The Taiwan Annual Conference celebrated its 60th anniversary in April 2013.
