Unlike gay advocacy groups within The
United Methodist Church (UMC),
Transforming Congregations does not partner
with local churches in order to tally numbers or promote a
denominational political position.
The Judicial Council ruled many years
ago that UMC church organizations, including local congregations,
may not adopt the labels "reconciling," "transforming," or
"confessing" because to do so is divisive.* We encourage local
UMC churches to abide by that ruling.
We do invite ALL local churches to
partner with us through prayer and financial support, and by
practical steps to uphold traditional biblical understandings of
marriage and sexuality.
