The first Finnish-speaking congregation was founded in 1887. In that period, the Czar ruled over both Finland and Russia, and he gave the official approval to the Methodist church.

In 1911 the first independent annual conference was established in Finland, but some ten years later, in 1923 the church split into a Finnish Speaking and a Swedish speaking conference. Today there are 11 congregations and around 800 professing members in the Finnish provisional Conference.

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.
