Keep the United Methodist Church 'United'

    1. Petition by

      William Brown

      Maryville, TN

We believe that the United Methodist Church should remain united in its mission of 'Making disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world'. We have witnessed amazing ministry happen through the United Methodist Church. One of these recent miracles is the 'Imagine No Malaria Campaign'. Because we have been able to do such extraordinary ministry together we do not see the benefit of splitting into two separate denominations. We are asking the annual conferences to elect delegates to General Conference 2016 that would hold the church united and avoid schism. We strongly believe the best way forward is together.

Keep the United Methodist Church 'United'

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The US is very divided. Our church should set the example of worshiping and working together.

      I strongly believe that we can make "disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world" more effectively together. There are so many pressures in today's society to go against biblical principles, I believe we need to present a united front against those pressures.

      The United Methodist Church is my family and my home. We differ on an issue that is important; but is far less important than the things we'd give up if we split over it. I implore those who demand schism to cease and move on; don't attempt to take my family with you. We are, and by the grace of God I hope always will be; the UNITED Methodist Church.

      One of the ways the United Methodist Church models the body of Christ is because it welcomes all and embraces diversity. To split would tell the world that we really don't welcome all or love those who are different from us.
