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.

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.
