Today THE WESLEYAN CHURCH issued a clarion call for comprehensive immigration reform. See the statement below that was released this afternoon to send to the national media, Congress and the Administration:
THE WESLEYAN CHURCH joins with the National Immigration Forum and other Evangelical and Christian organizations in calling for broad, commonsense immigration reform that includes a conditional path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
THE WESLEYAN CHURCH has origins in historic Methodism and the American holiness and revival movements, endeavors to balance passionate evangelism and discipleship with godly concern for social reform, and embraces kingdom values regarding immigration that are grounded in biblical principles.
Immigration is a contemporary issue that beckons Wesleyans to act as agents of Spirit-filled outreach and compassion in North American society.
I am honored to be a part of this Kingdom movement that will make a difference in the lives of millions of people for whom Christ died!
