Methodism 101

United Methodist Basics

The United Methodist Church was formed in 1968, but it has had more than two centuries of organization in the United States and around the world. Learn about United Methodist basics: its history, structure, beliefs and ministries through these online courses, live workshops and resources.

“United Methodism 101” (UM101) is designed for new United Methodists and anyone wanting to know more about the denomination, as well as long-time United Methodists who would like to check their basic knowledge of the church. Each of the four modules contains many interactive features and takes about one hour to complete at the participant's leisure. The course can be taken online or in a group setting using the CD-Rom and Leader's Guide purchased from our estore.
