    • The Formation of The United Methodist Church

    First, the Free Methodist Church, formed in 1860 in Pekin, New York.[i] This was a strong anti-slavery denomination that also opposed secret societies. In 1990 this denomination moved its headquarters from Winona Lake, Indiana to Indianapolis, Indiana. Presently, the denomination has about 77,000 members in the United States and 850,000 worldwide.[ii] The Free Methodist Church is generally theologically conservative, whereas the United Methodist Church obviously is liberal in theology. Further, the Free Methodist Church is less ceremonial or liturgical in worship and the clergy generally do not wear clerical vestments.[iii]The Free Methodists have been more loyal to Wesley’s emphasis on perfection and the church takes a strong stand on “entire sanctification.” One point that does indicate a departure from the Free Methodist conservative posture is the denominational acceptance of a feminist perspective. The first general superintendent was B. T. Roberts who favored the ordination of...

    Another small splinter group from the main Methodist Church body occurred in 1946 when the Evangelical Methodist Churchwas formed, with J. H. Hamblen elected as the first General Superintendent. In a description on the denominational website that laments the changes that occurred in the Methodist Church in the nineteenth century, we read: In the 20th century, things began to change. Slowly the revival fire that had driven the robust expansion of U. S. Methodism began to die out. Methodist leadership, literature and educational institutions became increasingly liberal and humanistic. The message being declared was no longer a consistent church-wide declaration of the infallible authority of the Bible nor of the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, bodily resurrection and second coming. The imperative of a personal religious experience, including the “new birth” and “sanctification” [the spirit filled life], was quietly dropped as a requisite for church membership or even...

    The highest point of the United Methodist Church came with the 1968 merger. (This was the merger of the Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church.) At that time, the membership climbed to nearly 11 million.[xxv] In the years 1968 to 1972, the Church lost about 518,000 members. Yet it must be pointed out that in 1970, only about 1% of white Methodists were outside of the United Methodist Church in the smaller Methodist denominations. The United Methodist Church was the second largest Protestant denomination by 1972, after the large Southern Baptist Church.[xxvi] Interestingly, the Catholic Digest said that the general public considered Methodists “the most liked religion” in 1967-68.[xxvii] During the past several decades, this membership number has progressively decreased, in part caused by the liberal social agenda of Methodist leadership. As the Methodist Church increasingly embraced abortion, feminism, political liberalism, sodomy (homosexuality), liberation the...
