Statement of Reconciliation
Peace United Methodist Church is a place of peace for all who choose to enter our doors. We seek to be an inclusive Christian community believing that we are all children of God, and that God loves us all equally regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, physical, mental and emotional abilities. As a Reconciling Congregation we specifically welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, their families and friends and embrace them as full members of the family of God.
We respect the diversity of opinions and the scripture, tradition, experience and reason that lead us to various conclusions, believing that prejudice, hatred and discrimination directed toward any individual or group are contrary to the life and spirit of Jesus Christ. Therefore, we shall work to eliminate prejudice and discriminatory practices within ourselves, our church and our community. With God’s help, we shall strive to build bridges and promote a ministry of reconciliation believing that God’s grace is a gift offered to all.
