About Who We Are A Methodist Episcopal Nonconforming Conference

At Eric Michel Ministries International we have a root in Syncretism from the union of a Christian Unitarian Minister and an independent Baptist Minister. 

Nonconforming because we have no affiliation with any Methodist churches in any way and we are episcopal meaning lead by a Bishop and no affiliation with the Episcopal Church or the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

Emphasizes the "methods" of the eighteenth-century evangelical reformers John Wesley and his brother Charles Wesley. More broadly, it refers to the theological system inferred from the various sermons, theological treatises, letters, journals, diaries, hymns, and other spiritual writings of the Wesley's and their contemporary coadjutors such as John William Fletcher.

Keeping this theological root Eric Michel Ministries International adopted the Traditions and Rituals of the United Methodist in America who was already in usage under the Christian Unitarian-Baptist Chaplaincy and after our partnership with the African United Methodist of Malawi in 2017.

Nonconforming with any Methodist movements, EMMI, added the theology of Universal Christ from the Catholic promoters Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Ilia Delio, Richard Rohr and Robert J. Spitzer plus the complement of Dr. Hugh Ross "Cosmic Reasons to Believe in Christ" and his Bible Creation.
