The First United Methodist Church of Lombard follows Jesus Christ’s example of loving God and serving others. We believe all people are created in the image of God and affirm their inherent sacred worth and dignity.
We welcome and affirm into full inclusion in the life and ministries of our church people of all ages, races, national origins, physical and/or mental abilities, socioeconomic conditions, sexual orientations, gender identities, faith backgrounds, family configurations, education backgrounds, and any other differences either real or perceived.
We especially proclaim this statement of welcome to all who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination in a church. As a Reconciling Congregation, we believe that we are being reconciled to God and to one another.
