FIRM FOUNDATIONS

FIRM FOUNDATIONS


John Wesley encouraged believers to remain united and use a balanced approach in the ongoing effort to live as Christians in the midst of the complexities of a secular world. It is vital in today's world for us to follow this methodology as we explore our way forward:

This method , known as the Wesleyan Quadrilateral, based its teaching on four sources:

scripture, tradition, reason, and experience
THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE

Everyday we're confronted with issues that try to divide us, and unity seems out of reach. It's only by remembering Jesus' example- a life of sacrificial love -that we're able to love others; even if we disagree.

A WAY FORWARD


The Commission on a Way Forward was established after the 2016 General Conference to find a way forward for the United Methodist Church. Our way forward must move us beyond the continuing impasse over the nature, conditions, and extent of the inclusion of LGBTQ people within the Church: people who are loved by God and are members of our Church.

Fault Lines: Holy Conversations about Sexuality in the United Methodist Church

As our denomination navigates the divisiveness that threatens to fracture our church, let us remember the sacred vows spoken during our baptism:

  • To remain faithful members of Christ’s holy church and serve as Christ’s representatives in the world;
  • To be loyal to Christ through The United Methodist Church and do all in their power to strengthen its ministries;
  • To faithfully participate in its ministries by their prayers, their presence, their gifts, their service, and their witness;
