Wonder, Love and Praise: Sharing a Vision of the Church


English  Français  Português  Kiswahili

Welcome to the Wonder, Love and Praise study page!  Wonder, Love and Praise (WLP) is a document produced by the Committee on Faith and Order (CFO) designed to engage United Methodists in a study of our ecclesiology, that is how we as United Methodists understand what it means to be the Church.

Our goal is to send a refined version of this document to the 2020 General Conference to be adopted alongside such official theological statements of the church as By Water and the Spirit  and This Holy Mystery

But before we can take the next steps, we need to hear from you!  You are invited, together with United Methodists from all over the word, to engage with WLP in study, conversation and reflection and to provide feedback to the CFO that will help shape its final form.  Below you will find, in all of the official languages of the General Conference, the full statement as well as a small group study with introductory videos and excerpts that seek to capture the spirit and basic themes of the document as a whole.

Whether you read the whole document, take part in a small group study, or simply read the provided excerpts on your own, we want to hear from you.  If you have any questions about the study or feedback process please email
