In community. We believe in being a church where Progressive and Inclusive Christianity is practiced and preached. We are a thinking congregation. We depend on our United Methodist tradition of looking at scripture, tradition, reason, and experience to inform our faith. Recently we voted to become a Reconciling Congregation which means we are open to all people including LGBTQ people as an official partner in the Reconciling Ministries Network. We've included our Welcoming Statement below which shares the ways we work to be a church where all means all.
Asbury United Methodist Church proclaims God’s unconditional love and grace and affirms the dignity and worth of every person as created in the image of God. We commit to creating a safe space for fellowship, learning, and worship for all people.
Therefore Asbury welcomes into the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, and sacraments all persons regardless of age, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic circumstance, marital status, family structure, and physical or mental ability.
In the spirit of “All Means All,” we recognize among us differences in theology and biblical interpretation; and we covenant to accept, learn from, respect, and love one another along our faith journeys.
