Vision Statement!  click here »


THE MISSION OF THE COALITION is to assure The United Methodist Church is fully open to the presence, love and grace of God offered to all people.

WE ARE United Methodists committed to the embodiment of God's love and justice within and through the people and mission of The United Methodist Church. The core of our faith is found in Jesus’ response to the question “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” - to “love God with all our heart, soul (being) and mind” and to “love neighbor as self”(Matthew 22:36-40). These hold ancient “law and prophets” together with our contemporary Book of Discipline, Social Principles, and Book of Resolutions.

WE AGREE to work together around the intersections of common justice issues and shared values that our partner organizations represent.

OUR HOPE is to ensure that our United Methodist Church remains open to the presence, love and grace of God and is faithful to our Wesleyan heritage of embracing both personal and social holiness as equal partners in our life-long journey of mission and ministry in Jesus' name.
