The Good Samaritan United Methodist Church believes all persons are created in God’s image and are of sacred worth. We seek to include all God’s children in God’s church and vow to respect and intentionally embrace our shared belief in the Word and Light embodied by Christ Jesus. We celebrate our diversity and welcome all into the full life of the church regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental capacity, education, religious background, family configuration, and marital or economic status.
In case there is any doubt, we are committed to:
- Outreach, welcome, and ministry with and for LGBTQ persons in the local setting.
- Creating ongoing opportunities to engage in dialogue, build relationships, and advocate for the necessary changes to the discriminatory statements and policies in our Book of Discipline including those that prohibit same-sex marriage officiated by UM clergy, same-sex marriage ceremonies held in our sanctuaries, and the ordination of gay and lesbian persons called to ministry.
At Good Samaritan Church, we believe in God’s transforming power in our lives and in the world. Trusting in Jesus’s answer to the question “Who is my neighbor?”, we reach across cultural, societal and economic boundaries to support the hurting, to call for justice, and to broaden the circle of God’s inclusive love.
