The first Methodist service took place in Copenhagen in the summer of 1858 and some years after, in 1865,  the church was officially recognized as a church by the state, and shortly after, the first church, the Jerusalem church, was inaugurated.

It took some more years to receive the official status as an independent annual conference in 1911. Due to a heavy crisis during the 1920’ies the number of members dropped dramatically. Today there are about 1300 professing members and about 1000 baptized members. The characteristics of the Danish Methodist church are: Social commitment, Gospel Choir, Scouts, children & youth work, mission in Congo and Latvia.

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.
