Seven Core Values of the Free Methodist Church:

The Free Methodists emphasize seven core values. These are personal values, Church values, team values, “connectionalism”, Integrity, learning and growth:

1)   Personal values include the understanding that all humans are created by God and have an inherent value, that humans need to know Jesus Christ, and that all have unique gifts to share with the Church.

2)   Church values focus on the Christian community and its importance in humans’ lives. Believers develop within the community, and it is their responsibility to serve and worship God.

3)   Team values include the recognition that each individual’s gift strengthens the Christian community.

4)   Connectionalism, according to the The Manual of the Free Methodist Church in Canada, means the following:

·     Free Methodists share a common theology, membership covenant, and leadership system.

·     Free Methodists co-operate with other parts of the Christian church in redemptive endeavours and political response.

·     Free Methodists build healthy inter-congregational cooperation, celebration and support.

·     Free Methodists affirm diverse approaches to accomplish our common vision and mission.

5)   Integrity is a guiding force in living and in managing life and relationships.

6)   Ongoing learning increases the development of skills and creativity:
it also increases faithfulness to God.

7)   Personal growth and growth of the Church are both important.

·     PRAYER: “My Father’s house is a house of prayer”. Matthew 21:13
