What is A Reconciling Congregation?

Statement of Reconciliation

All persons are recipients of God’s love and grace.  We share a faith in Jesus Christ and a commitment in Christianity and this is our bond.  In the spirit of God’s love and witnessing Jesus Christ’s life in action, our church welcomes all peoples.  We acknowledge the diversity of God’s universe and open our hearts as Christ loved all His children.

We, the members and constituents of the United Methodist Church of Osterville invite and welcome into our fellowship each unique person of every age, economic status, race, sexual orientation, religious background and social standing.  The diverse talents and abilities of individuals shall be recognized and given the freedom to grow.

We value and respect all people for their convictions in faith as demonstrated by their actions within our society.  As a true Reconciling Congregation, we shall go beyond this proclamation and encourage the application of Christ’s teachings to ensure justice for all His children.  As Christians, it is our responsibility to transmit Christ’s love to others and in doing so, add purpose to our lives by promoting a better understanding among all God’s children.
