Statement of Faith
We follow a God who we believe is constantly creating – in us and around us, and bringing goodness out of pain and brokenness. We follow a God who is the force behind all that is good and life-giving, the liberator of the oppressed, whose power is love. Let it be so.
We follow a Christ who is God with us, God in our mess, God in and with the margins, loving us unconditionally, radically, and selflessly. We follow a Christ who opposes the powers of this world that perpetuate domination, inequality, oppression, and hostility. Let it be so.
As Christ-followers, we reciprocate Christ’s love by loving others and offering them the grace we’ve received from Christ. We affirm that our faith is a verb and compels us to be catalysts for peace, light, wisdom, and love. Let it be so.
We embody a Church that is created to love, to affirm the image of God in all who are around us, and to form self-giving, reciprocal relationships with others – and the Other. Let it be so.
As the Denton Wesley Foundation, we will resist discrimination and oppression in all their forms, as well as power that uses or results in domination, harm, or inequality. We reject the use of Scripture or Christianity in any way that constitutes “spiritual abuse” or seeks to shame us. Instead, we embrace a faith that liberates us and leads us closer to a loving God. Let it be so.
As the Denton Wesley Foundation, we will act compassionately to love all selflessly and seek mutual, equal relationships with and understanding of everyone, affirming our diverse identities in Christ. We will create, bring change for peace, stand with the marginalized, speak out for justice, and build a safe, loving, but challenging genuine community. Let it be so.
The Denton Wesley Foundation is a registered nonprofit organization, ministry of the North Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church, and official Reconciling Ministry, serving students at the University of North Texas, Texas Woman’s University, and North Central Texas College.
