Methodist Church of Peru
Announce the Kingdom of God by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ, serving our neighbor and fulfilling the prophetic role in the context of our society and culture under the direction of the Holy Spirit.
The presence of the Methodist Church in Peru dates back to 1877 when Bishop William Taylor led the first Methodist mission in the country.The Methodist Church fought in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for religious freedom, for the recognition of civil marriage, as well as for the right of non-Catholics to bury their dead in cemeteries. Likewise, the rights of indigenous people and women were defended. In a context of intolerance, where the exercise of a faith other than the Catholic was prohibited, the Methodist Church contributed to the training of children and adolescents through its schools.Today the Methodist Church develops, with freedom, an integral mission, preaching the Gospel and attending to the needs of the most disadvantaged populations of society.
