The first Methodist churches in Finland developed among the Swedish speaking population during the 1880 where Methodism spread from Sweden to Finland.

Even today, the Swedish speaking Methodists in Finland have their own Finland- Swedish Provisional Annual Conference with a little less than a thousand professing members and 13 congregations.

The church engages in mission in Zimbabwe, Kenya, India and Cambodia and focuses on church planting and working with Muslim immigrants.

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.
