What is the purpose of the World Methodist Council?

The World Methodist Council engages, empowers, and serves member churches by encouraging Methodist unity in witness, facilitating mission in the world, and fostering ecumenical and inter-religious activities. It promotes obedience to Christ’s Great Commandment to love God and neighbor, and it is committed to fulfilling the Great Commission to make disciples through vibrant evangelism, a prophetic voice, cooperative programs, faithful worship, and mutual learning.
