We recognized that there were these different positions held by members of our congregations with conviction.

"Recognized" is past tense.

Is such recognition still in place?


Yes. Some of us encourage such diversity in our church. Others, not so much.
"The church ... had made us like ill-taught piano students; we play our songs, but we never really hear them, because our main concern is not to make music, but but to avoid some flub that will get us in dutch." [Robert Capon, _Between Noon and Three_, p. 148]
