On Sunday, May 30, 2021, the congregation present at Union Grove United Methodist Church made a unanimous decision to become a reconciling congregation. Below is our Statement of Faith subsequently adopted as part of our registration with the Reconciling Ministries Network.
We Believe – UGUMC Statement of Faith
We believe in the wholeness of God, the wholeness of Creation, and the Holiness of all His children.
We celebrate God’s gift of diversity and value the wholeness made possible in community equally shared and shepherded by all. We welcome and affirm people of every gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, who are also of every age, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, level of education, and family structure, and of every economic, immigration, marital, and social status, and so much more.
We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic, and political inequities. As followers of Jesus, we commit ourselves to the pursuit of justice and pledge to stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed.
