Celebs That You May Not Have Known Are Methodists

Methodism, commonly known as the Methodist movement, is a group of historically connected Protestant Christian churches whose roots, doctrine, and practice are based on the life and teachings of John Wesley.

Methodists believe that people should have a close relationship with God that changes their life. They are also concerned about persons in society who require assistance. They think that faith in God should motivate people to serve others.

Consider your favorite celebrity. Can you name their most well-known role? Who is their significant other? What about their religious beliefs? You probably can’t think of many notable Methodists, but that’s because you haven’t read this list yet. Several well-known actors, singers, and politicians were raised in the Methodist faith.
