Clayton United Methodist Church, Englewood, OH

updated more than 2 years ago

Description

Various doctrinal statements in the form of creeds, confessions of belief, and articles of faith were officially adopted by churches as standards of Christian teaching. Notwithstanding their importance, these formal doctrinal standards by no means exhausted authoritative Christian teaching. Though our gifts vary widely, we’re all called to and engaged in the one ministry of Jesus Christ.
Some aspects of our ministry are easy and come naturally. Some are difficult, involving long hours, tough work, perhaps with conflict, perhaps with disappointing results.
What drives us? What keeps us going?


Company description
John Wesley was an ardent opponent of slavery. Many of the leaders of early American Methodism shared his hatred for this form of human bondage. The United Brethren in Christ took a strong stand against slavery, as church members could not sell a slave, and by 1837 ruled that slave owners could not continue as members.
As the nineteenth century progressed, it became apparent that tensions were deepening in Methodism over the slavery question.The Civil War dealt an especially harsh blow to The Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Its membership fell to two-thirds its pre-war strength.
Many of its churches lay in ruins or were seriously damaged.
