They believe in infant baptism, they believe Jesus is LORD... they sing praise and worship songs, they do not lift or clap hands during. They keep attendance each Sunday, women can be ushers, they confirm at about the age of 13. I've never seen an altar call there. They take communion, and they have women pastors.
My daughter joined the Methodist Church and my best friend was a PC in the Methodist church before getting saved. If you have any questions specifically, I can ask one of them. Peace.
I'm sorry but your knowledge of the United Methodist Church is limited and filled with errors and misconceptions.
The United Methodist Church's primary statement of belief is found in the Apostle's Creed, which is recited regularly during most "formal" or "traditional" worship services. The Nicene Creed is also occasionally recited.
Even in most "traditional" services, members of the congregation are free to lift their hands in praise and to say "Amen" when led to do so by the Holy Spirit, however this practice is most common during "contemporary" services. During contemporary worship services, the congregation members are strongly encouraged to clap and sing and raise their hands in praise.
As far as "Altar Calls".......sometimes it is as Wolfet said, a "general" invitation to pray at the altar...but there are also many "Altar Calls" which deal specifically with accepting Christ as our Lord and Savior or repentance and rededicating our lives to Christ.
In the UMC, infant baptism is an act by the parents and congregation to "bring the child up in the knowledge and love of the Lord". This baptism does NOT insure salvation for the child after they reach the age of accountability. However, if/when the child accepts Christ as his/her personal Savior, they may or may not be re-baptized. IMO, most DO choose to be re-baptized but the UMC regulations do not require it.
Baptism may be done by "sprinkling", "pouring", or "immersion"----it is totally up to the person making the decision to follow Christ. However, most UMCes do NOT have a baptistery, so immersions are traditionally done at other venues.
Most UMCes have strong Sunday School and Youth programs, however this varies greatly depending upon the size and resources of the local church.
Organizationally, the local churches are "grouped" into areas called "Conferences". Each Conference has a "Bishop" and each Conference is divided into "Districts" which have "Superintendents". "Conferences" meets annually to "appoint" the clergy to the local churches. "Conferences" are members of larger area groups called "Jurisdictions". The "General Conference" is the National organization and it meets every 4 years to review/revise the rules and regulations of the UMC.
The United Methodist Church was founded by John Wesley and "Methodists" got their name from the unusual "methods" of John Wesley. Other Wesley-tradition denominations "broke off" from the Methodist Church and are much more conservative in their practices (Holiness, Mennonite).
John Wesley was one of the first church leaders to welcome women as ordained pastors.
