The Social Principles serve as the United Methodist Church’s official summary of stated convictions on social issues of the day.

First adopted by the 1972 General Conference, the Social Principles document stands in the Wesleyan tradition of forthright moral witness and ethical action.

Taking its inspiration and grounding from both the Evangelical United Brethren’s Moral Standards and the Methodist Episcopal Church’s social creed, the Social Principles reflect the church’s concern for both personal and social holiness in communities across the world.
