Our Statement of Inclusion

We the people of Fairwood Community United Methodist Church regard the love of God to be the foundation of our life and ministry. We believe in the ever present love of God as witnessed through Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit. We believe that each person is loved by God and is of sacred worth.

Therefore, by God’s grace:
We welcome all persons to our Church without regard to race, ethnic or cultural background, social status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, theological perspective, political affiliation, or other means people use to categorize and discriminate against others.

We express God’s hospitality by creating a safe, healing and transforming place for all to enter. We celebrate the gifts of all who come seeking God, Christian community and justice in our world, and we welcome all into the life and ministry of our Church. We recognize the interrelatedness of all creation and we declare that we grow in grace and in the knowledge of God when we embrace diversity.

We uphold the motto of our denomination – Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.
