As followers of Jesus Christ, we are an inclusive community, responding to God’s love and grace.

We Affirm God’s Covenant with the Jewish People

Stacks Image 1293
The Claremont United Methodist Church publicly states its affirmation that Judaism is a continuing bulwark of faith, that it has not been superseded by Christianity, that God has not rejected the Jewish people, that the Jewish people have never lost their covenant with God, that salvation is available to Jews as a covenant people, that the Jews as an historic nation are not responsible for, and therefore not to be blamed for, the death of Jesus, and that Jews should not be pressured to convert to Christianity
Furthermore, we state that anti-Judaism in ail forms should be universally condemned. We ask forgiveness for past sins and persecutions against the Jewish people. We pray that old barriers to communication and understanding will be removed and that the relationships of this church with the congregation of the local Jewish community will be enhanced.

Approved by the Administrative Board, 1/19/1993.

As part of the United Methodist Church we Respect Islam and Oppose Discrimination against Muslims.

“The United Methodist Church, in the knowledge that Jesus calls us to the blessings of peacemaking and reminds us that the highest law is to love God and neighbor, calls its members and its leaders:
  1. To oppose demagoguery, manipulation, and image making that seeks to label Arabs and Muslims in a negative way;
  2. To counter stereotypical and bigoted statements made against Muslims and Islam, Arabs and Arabic culture;
  3. To increase knowledge of neighbor by study and personal contact that yield a greater appreciation of the Muslim and Arabic contributions to society;
  4. To act decisively to include Arabs and Muslims in interfaith and community organizations;
  5. To pray for the perfection of community among us and to participate fully in the process of bringing it into being; and
  6. To publicly denounce through statements from the Council of Bishops and the General Board of Church and Society current practices that discriminate against this community.”
