Why the Change?

Belle Fourche Methodist Church disaffiliated from

the United Methodist Church

Jan. 1, 2023.


Bringing hope in
Jesus Christ
for a broken
and chaotic world.
Global Methodist Church

nurtures the local church to be disciples of Jesus Christ who worship passionately, love extravagantly and witness boldly.

We changed our affiliation from the United Methodist Church to become the

Belle Fourche Global Methodist Church:

  • To be true in scripture authority and traditional theology.

  • To promote growth in ministry and service with lower apportionments and a voice in choosing pastors.

  • GMC Bishops serve terms and have accountability for leadership.

  • To be a truly ethnically and racially diverse global church with equal treatment of all members.
