WELCOMING STATEMENT

Wesley Foundation at Purdue University welcomes all students who seek to grow in a respectful community. We affirm that people of all races, ethnicities, nationalities, physical and mental abilities, neurodiversity, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and any other labels we place upon ourselves or our neighbors, are made in God’s image. We welcome students of diverse theological, religious, and political perspectives who want to interact through respectful dialogue. We believe God meets and walks alongside us in all stages of our faith journey. We are all loved by God and saved by grace, despite the fact that we frequently fall short of loving as God calls us to love, both as individuals and as a community of faith. We acknowledge this and continue to work to become truly one body in Christ. We acknowledge the hurts and harms done by the church and by people in it who with one breath affirm love and with another spread hate. We strive to defy hate in all forms and always move forward in Love.
