Church Affiliation 

The Pittsburgh Conference Free Methodist Church welcomes inquiries from independent congregations who wish to explore the benefits of affiliating with the Free Methodist Church.  Congregations established outside of Free Methodist sponsorship who wish to become part of the denomination may enter as affiliate congregations.  As an affiliate congregation, benefits include:
 
1. A clear statement of beliefs that are historically Christian, grounded in Scripture, and evangelical in nature 
 
2. Opportunities to partner with other churches in a regional effort to reach people for Christ and to establish new campuses and churches
 
3. Training programs for pastors and church leaders to sharpen leadership and evangelism skills with the goal of multiplying ministry, planting churches, and more
 
4. A worldwide missions movement that gives congregations global opportunities to support missionaries and partner with ministries in other countries
 
5. A process for persons to become ordained ministers for Jesus Christ
 
6. A pension program for pastors and church employees
