United Methodists Care for Creation

A relationship with God's creation and a ministry of caring for and healing the earth are integral to what it means to be a United Methodist.

The following is an excerpt from the Social Principles: The Natural World:

"All creation is the Lord’s, and we are responsible for the ways in which we use and abuse it. Water, air, soil, minerals, energy resources, plants, animal life, and space are to be valued and conserved because they are God’s creation and not solely because they are useful to human beings. God has granted us stewardship of creation. We should meet these stewardship duties through acts of loving care and respect."
