On The Road to Gay Affirmation, Methodist Group Announces Intention to Facilitate Split if Necessary

During the last weekend in February, the United Methodist Church denomination has called a special General Conference to vote on a proposed change in denominational rules that would remove bans against active, practicing homosexuals in the clergy. The One Church Plan is widely supported by denominational leaders and is expected, at least in part, to pass the vote.

The Wesleyan Covenant Association is a conservative network of churches within the United Methodist Church that are opposed to the current apostasy in the denomination. Announcing their intention to facilitate a split if the historic plan passes the vote, the association sent out a letter to chapter members outlining the steps for that process.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack.

If necessary, there will be a WCA Convening Conference to potentially establish a new denomination following the called General Conference.

Rev. Paul Lawler, president of the North Alabama WCA regional chapter writes, urging members to “hold tight” until after the vote,

The temptation may be to immediately send letters of withdrawal from The United Methodist Church, we urge churches and pastors to participate in the convening conference if necessary and to take steps to withdraw in concert with one another.

The letter states that if the One Church Plan passes, there is a 100 percent chance that the conference facilitating the split will be called, while noting that even if it doesn’t pass, there is still a 70 percent chance.

Schisms within denominations are not new, as tensions tend to build between conservatives and progressive over time and almost every recognized denomination has face it at some point in history. When Scripture is tossed aside and churches become subject to none other than their own personal interests, sin creeps in and takes over. What is happening in the United Methodist Denomination right now is full-on apostasy.
