I found pretty much what I expected: Non-denominational, bible is infallible, substitutional atonement, family is awesome (not sure if that's code or not). Then I started wondering if our church had any absolute statements like that. I didn't think they would. I was guessing I would find some statements taken out of the Methodist handbook. The closest thing I could find was this, "The Table is a place where... you will not be handed a checklist of orthodoxy." That statement right there warmed my heart.
My church is a place where I don't have to pretend I agree with anything. I don't have to put aside my questions and doubts when I come to service. If I'm not sure there is a God this week, I don't have to skip service for fear of being blasphemous. And most importantly, I don't have to pretend I disapprove of gay people. Because I don't, and they don't. It's a place where I can be my 100% genuine self.
