Memorial 66

GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT

Whereas, There has been a call for revision of The Wesleyan Church's membership commitment on speaking in tongues;

Whereas, This is an international issue in that the International Charter states almost verbatim the North American statement on speaking in tongues (6725:c); and

Whereas, There is value in periodic review of our commitments and in gaining perspective from a variety of sources within the denomination's constituency;

Resolved, That the General Board appoint a working group consisting of pastors and scholars to review the membership commitment on speaking in tongues, as stated in paragraph 265:9 of The Discipline, and bring a recommendation to the 2020 General Conference.
