From the United Methodist Church website:
“As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.”
St. Paul’s belongs to the Baltimore-Washington Conference of the United Methodist Church. The BWC is composed of hundreds of churches in the Maryland, West Virginia panhandle, and Washington, DC, area. The conference is led by Bishop LaTrelle Easterling and offices are located in Fullerton, Maryland.
