About Us

The United Brethren church is….

  • Evangelical. Theologically, we enjoy solid evangelical credentials.
  • Not huge. We have about 200 churches in the United States. Being huge has its advantages, but that’s not who we are.
  • International. We include churches in 18 countries, and a presence in a number of others.
  • Welcoming. We gladly link arms with other Christian denominations, organizations, and groups to accomplish Christ’s mission.
  • Church-focused. We’re not big on denominational stuff. The local church is where things happen.
  • Averse to hangups. We take stands where necessary, but avoid areas where Christians can legitimately disagree. We don’t like to scare people off or fight each other.
  • Historic. We’ve been around for nearly 250 years. In fact, we were the first new denomination to begin in the New World. For whatever that’s worth.
