Statement of Purpose

(revised 9/2/16; originally adopted Nov 13, 2004)

We, the Reconciling United Methodists of the Oregon-Idaho Annual Conference, in order to embody "open hearts, open minds, open doors" will:

  • help Oregon-Idaho United Methodist Churches and ministries be places of welcome and safety for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) persons and become more inclusive in their day-to-day life, language, witness, and teaching;
  • provide resources and support to local churches and ministries to help them discuss, develop, and publish statements that proclaim their welcome to all persons, specifically every race, nationality, age, gender, social condition, ability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, previous faith experience, and questioners; and
  • state clearly that "we are not leaving" the United Methodist Church and that we will find ways to promote unity.
