    A Word on Moving Forward

    As we navigate the changes in the United Methodist denomination, we want to be sure we stay true to who we are, who God has called us to be, and our belief system.

    This disaffiliation process is a journey to find other Wesleyans who hold the same values of scriptural authority and Christocentric theology that we do.

    It is more accurate to say that the United Methodist denomination left us a long time ago, and we are now finding our way to other, like-minded believers.
