Here at Asbury, we want everyone to be welcome on our campus, in worship, in our classes, and fellowship gatherings, whether you’re a member, a guest of someone, or a visitor.
The following updated statement was worked on by a committee of several people, both members and non-members, and was approved by Asbury’s Church Council in November 2016:
ALL people are children of God and are of sacred worth. Asbury United Methodist Church affirms Christ’s example of unconditional love and publicly affirms a commitment to spiritual diversity and individual integrity. Therefore, we welcome all, including those who have not always been accepted because of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, cultural background, social or economic status, family make-up, physical abilities, or age. Our community embraces you and celebrates God’s love with you. We receive you with open arms, joy and the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
We hope you’ll join us and find out for yourself.
