Our Purpose 

 

Confessing faith in Jesus Christ as Son, Savior, and Lord, The Confessing Movement exists to help retrieve and celebrate the Church’s classic biblical and doctrinal identity and to live it out together as followers of Jesus Christ.

This task is critically important in our relativistic age, which insists that every individual come to her or his own personal truth, morality, and understanding of righteousness. Within the United Methodist Church, this situation has often led to the promotion of political ideologies and personal agendas overlaid with religious veneers, positions frequently in opposition to the historic biblical and doctrinal teachings of the faith.

The unravelling of The United Methodist Church has reached one more turning in the road. The Feinberg Protocols are the bridge into the future that is now taken with radical seriousness on all sides. There is little to add to the responses already available on social and other media. The level and high quality of engagement makes clear that the debate about the future is now joined in earnest.

Legislation setting special provisions for United Methodist churches deciding to leave the denomination took effect immediately at the end of the special General Conference last February, the church’s top court has ruled.

    A little boy had six tiny puppies for sale.  He was asking only two dollars for each one, but he wasn’t having any success in selling them.  In fact, only one man had even stopped to look at them despite the large sign the boy had made.  Several days later the same man passed by and saw that the price of the puppies had been raised to ten dollars each.  He stopped to ask about the increase in price.  The boy held up one of...
