Estonian Methodist Church (EMC) is a Christian church that has as its purpose to proclaim the Word of God, administer sacraments, advance religious and moral education, and foster Christian culture.
Estonian Methodist Church adheres to the essential principles that Christian Church has taught since Jesus’ time. We believe that all life owes its existence to God, who created us to live in harmony with Him, with each other and with the world that surrounds us. Suffering, evil and injustice we see in this world results from our human choice to withdraw from the goodness that God is giving to us. Because of this human depravity, God sent Jesus to open the only door to the restored life, where every one of us is able to receive the healing we need.
Methodist Church wants to be a bridge builder between human being and God by proclaiming faith, hope, love and salvation that can become available for every person through Jesus Christ. Read more about the teaching of EMC ».
