We are a community of dedicated believers who firmly believe that the Bible is the
inspired Word of God. It is through the Scriptures that we can discover the
profound beauty of God and truly come to know Him. We also believe that the
Word has the power to transform our lives: “All Scripture is inspired by God and
profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so
that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work” (2 Tim 3:16-17).
Our mission is twofold. First and foremost, we strive to become dedicated students
of God’s Word. By immersing ourselves in the Word, we can grow closer to Him,
understanding God’s grand plans, and develop a stronger relationship with our
Creator. Secondly, we are committed to applying the Word in our everyday lives.
As Christ’s faithful disciples, we believe that the teachings of the Bible should not
be confined to Sunday services. Instead, we are called to live out the principles and
values of the Word, serving as living examples of Christ’s love and grace in our
community and beyond. We are passionate about making disciples of others, both
within our community and in the wider world.
Pastor Jae Kim
We firmly believe in and uphold these 7 core beliefs as essential and foundational pillars of the Christian faith:
We believe in one true and living God who eternally exists in three distinct persons within one
divine essence: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each person deserves the same worship
and reverence, as they are co-equal in power and glory, and co-eternal in perfect unity of love
from eternity past.
We believe that Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, is the eternal God, as He equally
possesses every perfection of the undivided divine essence of God. The Bible identifies the Son
as the Creator, and He has existed in eternal glory alongside the Father. He pre-existed all things,
for the Creator of all things must have existed prior to their creation. He came to earth from
heaven at the moment of the miraculous conception of His human nature in the womb of the
virgin Mary; so that two whole and perfect natures were joined together in one person, truly God
and truly man.
We believe that all of humanity, both male and female, has lost their spiritual life, becoming dead
in trespasses and sins. Consequently, all of humanity finds themselves destitute of holiness and
naturally inclined towards evil, experiencing a state of separation from God. This condition
necessitates the transformative experience of being born again in order to enter the kingdom of
God. However, no amount of human effort, morality, or good works can bridge the gap between
us and God. It is only through the undeserved favor and loving-kindness of God that we can be
reconciled to Him and experience spiritual restoration. We believe that God’s grace precedes and
enables our response to His call, drawing us to acknowledge our sinfulness and opening our
hearts to embrace His salvation. It is only through the work of the Holy Spirit that God’s grace
not only enables our initial response to have faith in Christ but also empowers us to live a
We believe that Jesus, through His physical and sacrificial death on the cross, willingly bore the
weight of our sins, taking upon Himself the punishment we deserved. In this act of
substitutionary atonement, our sinfulness was imputed to Him, and His righteousness was
imputed to us, resulting in our justification before God. We also believe that Jesus, after His
crucifixion, physically rose from the dead, conquering sin and death. His resurrection serves as a
confirmation of His divine power and victory over sin, validating His claims and establishing the
foundation of our faith. Through Christ’s resurrection, we find hope in the assurance of our own
future bodily resurrection and the promise of eternal life in His presence.
We believe that our salvation is not earned or achieved through our own works or merits but
solely through the unmerited favor and undeserved grace of God. It is by His grace alone that we
have hope for salvation, and it is through faith that we receive and appropriate the gift of
salvation. We believe that sinners are justified or accounted righteous before God solely through
faith in the person and works of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ perfect life, sacrificial death, and victorious
resurrection provide everything necessary for our redemption. We do not add our own works or
efforts to achieve salvation but rely entirely on the finished work of Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ, who ascended into heaven, will come back to earth in the same way
He ascended into heaven. Therefore, Christ’s return will be a literal, visible, and personal event,
not a symbolic or spiritual occurrence. This expectation gives hope to believers, reminding us to
eagerly await His coming and live in holiness in light of His imminent return. Christ’s glorious
return will mark the ultimate fulfillment of God’s plan for redemption and the establishment of
His eternal kingdom. We also believe that believers, both the living and the deceased, will be
raised in their physical bodies to partake in the eternal blessings of God’s kingdom. This
resurrection ensures that believers will receive glorified bodies that are imperishable, immortal,
free from sin and imperfection, to reign with Him forever and ever.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, serving as the final and
supreme authority for our faith and practice. The Bible contains everything necessary for
salvation, guidance, and instruction in righteousness. We believe that the Bible was written by
human authors under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit, making it God’s own Word
communicated to us without error or contradiction. Despite being written in historical and
cultural contexts, the truths contained within the Bible transcend time and continue to speak to
believers today as a living and active Word. The sixty-six canonical books of the Old and New
Testaments provide a complete revelation of God’s will for humanity, that no additional inspired
texts should or can be added to them. As the Word of God, Scripture has the ability to convict,
teach, guide, and comfort believers in their journey of sanctification, leading them to become
more like Christ and develop a closer relationship with God.
The First Group of Ordained Global Methodist Pastors
ABOUT THE GLOBAL NAME & LOGO
John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, proclaimed, “The world is my parish.” Ever since, the people called Methodist have committed to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with people all around the world.
In that spirit, faithful Methodists have been praying and working to discern God’s will for a new church rooted in Scripture and the historic and life giving teachings of the Christian faith. Given that those called to this new denomination are from many countries, speak many languages, and yet share one faith, the name “the Global Methodist Church” seemed fully appropriate.
Methodists in Africa, Europe, Eurasia, the Philippines, and the United States have warmly embraced the name. It simultaneously states who we are and who we aspire to be: faithful Christians in the Methodist tradition dedicated to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with people all around the world.
The Global Methodist Church’s logo brings together in its three circles the one God – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – who alone we worship. The circles intersect at the center of the cross of Jesus Christ, the symbol of our deliverance from our slavery to sin and fear of death. The outer circumference of the rings represents the globe. As a whole, the logo communicates God’s sending of the church into the world. The sky blue color reminds us that even though Global Methodists live all around the world, they are all united together in God’s great creation.
