Transition Decision

On July 31, 2022 a historic decision was made by the members of Nashville United Methodist Church to disaffiliate from The United Methodist Church. 


As a resounding 94% voted to disaffiliate we now look forward to our next task as the body of Christ, which will take place on August 14th at 5pm in Braswell Hall. In this gathering we will vote on whether to join the Global Methodist Church or become an independent church.


As the decision on July 31 was not taken lightly, but with much prayer and consideration, so should this decision on August 14th. Therefore, we ask you to pray and learn and then pray more as we ask for God’s wisdom on how we move forward as a local body of Christ.


Below you will find ample resources to learn more about the GMC and being an independent church.


Global Methodist Church

"Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who worship passionately, love extravagantly, and witness boldly.

In our worship, we desire to surrender to and be fully devoted to one God—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are passionate about what is important to God.


Jesus calls those who follow Him to love God wholeheartedly and love their neighbors as themselves. Our desire is to demonstrate to the world the extravagant love of God in the person of Jesus Christ.


We have been entrusted with a lifesaving and transforming message that we must share with others. Our witness is bold, compelling and fearless. Our mission advances when individuals become disciples of Jesus Christ and join God’s mission to make more disciples."
