The Evangelical Methodist Church, whose URL is http://www.emchurch.org is a
small offshoot from the mainstream Methodist churches in the USA. It was founded
as far back as 1946 by individuals who felt that these mainstream churches had
abandoned the original principles of Methodism as preached by the Wesleys and
others and which had adopted socially and theologically liberal and humanistic
values in their place.
The church seal appears in two forms: in a larger version in the introduction to their web site, and in a smaller and slightly different format at the top of each subsequent page thereafter. The version in the introduction is quite striking, as is the introduction itself, which features music and moving images. The seal is coloured in different tones of black, white, and gray, and is in the form of a large circle with an outer ring and a central image. The outer ring contains the words 'THE EVANGELICAL' in slate gray block letters at the top, and 'METHODIST CHURCH' similarly written at the bottom. To the left of the seal the letters 'EMC', in a large block format coloured slate gray and fimbriated white, extend from the outside of the seal, through the outer ring, and well into the central image itself. The central image consists of a rotating globe impaled by a large cross in white and shadowed black. To the right of the base of the cross is a large open Bible, also in white and black.
