The history of the Free Methodist Church is rooted in the biblical command to live in holy love.  This love comes from God and is available to all. …. Jesus embodied this good news of the kingdom in His life, death, rising from death and continuing work in our world.  He works transformation through His followers — bringing forgiveness, mending brokenness and setting people free to live with fearless love and confident hope.  (Excerpt from “Free to be Whole”, 2013)
