Photo of First United Methodist Church of San Pedro, located at 580 W. 6th St. and the corner of S. Grand Ave, shows a rather large 3-story cream-color building with brown facade and brown roof. There are two main entrances, one on either side at the front of the church; a marquee is visible between the stairs with a white cross and "flame" placed higher up on the structure. A unique tower made up of crosses can be seen on the right of the church.; The United Methodist Church is the largest Methodist denomination, having both mainline and evangelical elements. It is organized into conferences; the highest level is called the General Conference and it is the only organization which may speak officially for the church. The United Methodist Church (UMC) operates in the evangelical tradition, but is primarily a Protestant denomination which seeks to create disciples for Christ through outreach, evangelism, and through seeking holiness through the process of sanctification. UMC has a worldwide membership of approximately 12 million members: 8.1 million in the United States, and 3.5 million in Africa, Asia, and Europe - with the largest growth in membership occurring in Africa and the Philippines. Photo dated: March 2006.
