Social Principles 2020

Since its founding, the United Methodist Church has spoken to the issues of the day as an expression of the Wesleyan commitment to social holiness. The 2020 revised Social Principles continues this tradition.

Church and Society stewarded the revision process, creating a teachable document that the whole church can use.
