Lithuania

UMC Lithuania

 

The history of Methodism in Lithuania is very much the same as in Estonia and Latvia where all church work was destroyed after World War II. The first UMC Lithuania reopened in 1996 where missionaries were sent from the US to help re-establish the church. Today there are around 400 professing members and 10 churches, but very few ordained pastors. Some of the main issues in Lithuania on top of the lack of finances are alcoholics, deprived youth and children and single parents.

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.
