Estonia

umc tallinn

To say that the Methodist church in Estonia has been through much turmoil over the years is a mild way of putting it!

The Methodism in Estonia flourished before and after World War I, but after the incorporation in the Soviet Union after World War II, the church suffered severely. Pastors and members of the congregations were persecuted and church property was destroyed or confiscated. Due to courageous national leaders such as Alexander Kuum the Methodist Church managed to continue the church work during the occupation.

After the independence in 1991, the Estonian conference has been characterized by growth, and today there are around 1500 professing members and 25 churches with both Russian speaking and Estonian speaking congregations. The church in Tallinn also hosts the Baltic Methodist Theological Seminary.

Bishop emblemUnited Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We value the intellect and modern science, at the same time we see the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. Methodists recognize that the world is not always black and white. We are willing to ask questions and to wrestle with difficult issues, and we do so with grace and compassion.

Methodists emphasize personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. We value well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that is lively, and small groups where people can grow in faith.
