The Methodist Church:

The Methodist Church is that communion of Christian believers which has grown out of the Societies born of the Evangelical revival of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It claims and cherishes its place in the Holy Catholic Church, which is the Body of Christ. It rejoices in the inheritance of the Apostolic Faith, and loyally accepts the fundamental principles of the historic Creeds and of the Protestant Reformation.

It ever remembers that in the providence of God, Methodism was raised up to spread Scriptural holiness through the land by the proclamation of the evangelical faith, and declares its unfaltering resolve to be true to its Divinely appointed mission. (See constitution of MCCA.).
