“Recognizing that we are all created in God’s image, we celebrate our diversity by welcoming everyone regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, age, faith history, economic status, marital status, physical and mental abilities, and education. We believe that as children of God all are worthy of God’s love and grace.
We affirm the uniqueness of individuals and believe this diversity enriches our journey together in faith toward greater understanding, mutual respect, servanthood, and Christian love. Although there are differences among us and we do not always think alike, we believe we can love alike.
We welcome all persons to full participation in the life and ministries of Walnut Avenue United Methodist Church as we are being reconciled to God and to one another.”
