Statement of Grace and Hope
As alumni of Asbury Theological Seminary, we are grateful for the theological education we received there, and especially a Wesleyan theology rooted in grace and love grounded in the whole of Scripture.

As The United Methodist Church moves toward the special called session of the General Conference next February, we wish to express that though there are Asbury alumni who have aligned with various groups such as The Wesleyan Covenant Association, The Confessing Movement, Good News and others, there are many of us who have been prayerfully supportive of the intentional and sacred work charged to the Commission on the Way Forward. We see hope and promise in claiming all that is good that is already happening in our denomination. We recognize that there are differences of opinion but we believe that we can honor one another through the grace that is available for all through Jesus Christ. We fully embrace the call to share the gospel with all people at all times and in all places where we find ourselves.

As ministers of the Gospel, our desire is to participate in this supernatural move of grace, co-creating with the Holy Spirit spaces and places in the UMC where the fullness of the Way of Salvation can be realized in the lives of whomever God sends to us.

In signing this statement, we reaffirm our commitment to the faith we were taught as students at ATS, and we will continue to order our lives and ministries in ways that advocate and advance a denomination committed to love and inclusion of all God's children.

We invite all who share these convictions to sign this statement.
