The United Methodist Church continues hemorrhaging members over their stance against biblical gender and sexuality, and those numbers just skyrocketed in recent days.

Following the UMC’s decision to remove wording in their central rulebook which said homosexuality was “incompatible with Christian teaching,” the denomination lost over 1 million members as the Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) Conference based in West Africa voted to leave the apostate church.

Within the Ivory Coast Conference Declaration statement they claim the UMC in America “is not based on any biblical and disciplinary values.”

It is because of this distancing from the Lord and His ways, the UMC “is no longer suitable for the Annual Conference of Côte d’Ivoire.”

As reported by The Christian Post, “Mark Tooley, president of the theologically conservative Institute on Religion and Democracy, which monitors developments within the UMC, told The Christian Post it’s ‘wonderful that Ivory Coast Methodists are prioritizing orthodoxy over ties to the USA church.’

“Most Africans cannot abide liberalized USA standards,” he adds.
