United Methodist Church Loses More Than 1 Million Members in Single Day When Group Takes Stand for ‘God and His Word’

Last month, the UMC officially adopted pro-LGBT values.

In one fell swoop last week, the United Methodist Church lost more than 1 million members.

Weeks after the United Methodist Church voted to allow LGBT-practicing clergy and reverse prohibitions on same-sex marriage, the United Methodist Church of Ivory Coast (Eglise Méthodiste Unie Côte d’Ivoire) voted on May 28 to leave the UMC.

The West African Methodists made the decision to leave the UMC “for reasons of conscience, before God and His word, the supreme authority in matters of faith and life.” The decision of the UMC to embrace LGBT culture and same-sex marriages “deviates from the Holy Scriptures,” according to the EMUCI. The UMC church is, therefore, “sacrific[ing] its honor and integrity to honor the LGBTQ community.”
