Thank you for your interest in affiliation with the Free Methodist Church – USA.
This information is intended for interested congregations or groups to prayerfully consider the steps required for affiliation.
The Free Methodist Church is open to pastors and churches who are interested in affiliation. Like all covenant relationships, they should not be entered into lightly. Our Affiliation Process is a four-phase journey to a solid and healthy transition blessed by God and mutually affirmed.
For each pastor, church planter, or congregation desiring to affiliate, variations in each affiliate’s realities will shape each scenario. It is our desire to help you initially identify the standard waypoints that guide the Affiliation journey.
Our view of church growth is to see lives and communities transformed, and to seek God’s coming Kingdom. Though we welcome affiliates, our focus is as it should be – rooted in evangelism and discipleship. We seek to see Christians discipled to become holy servants of God.
Is affiliation with the Free Methodist Church a good fit for your congregation or group? We invite you to begin and engage the entire process prayerfully, inviting the Holy Spirit to speak, lead, and guide you.
We look forward to joining you in prayer and investigating affiliation with you.
