Our Core Beliefs

Our Beliefs, are as follows: 

  • A commitment to live a holy life.
  • A commitment to faithfully and fruitfully proclaim the Word of God.
  • A commitment to church growth/health through a Biblical-based ministry of evangelism and discipleship.
  • A commitment to a team spirit.
  • A commitment to servant leadership.

Wesleyans believe in one God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the Savior of all who put their faith in Him alone for eternal life. We believe that those who are made new in Christ are called to be holy in character and conduct, and can only live this way by being filled with the Lord’s Spirit. We believe in the Bible and its sufficiency to establish our faith and conduct. We believe God wills for people everywhere to know Him and be made new in Christ. We believe that the purpose of the Church is to worship God in spirit and in truth, and to reach a lost and fallen world with the gospel of Jesus Christ through its worship, witness, and loving deeds.

The following are terms descriptive of who Wesleyans are and why they do what they do. They describe the “soul of the Church”:

  • BIBLICAL AUTHORITY: The Bible is God’s holy Word. It uniquely and infallibly reveals God’s plan for His people and how to live out that plan, individually and corporately. Beliefs, practices, priorities, and our mission are to be anchored in clear biblical teachings.
  •  CHRISTLIKENESS: Jesus Christ is the defining feature of God’s will and relationship with all humankind. In Christ is found both newness of life and the highest and clearest example for godliness. People made new in Christ find Him to be the source of faith, hope, and love in both the inner life and in our outward actions engaging a world desperate for hope and life.
  • DISCIPLE-MAKING: Making disciples is a clear mandate from Christ. This requires a strong mission focus on evangelism and training in spiritual growth and holy living. Done effectively, this will produce and promote growth and health in and among the churches.
  •  LOCAL CHURCH CENTERED: The denomination exists to help local congregations grow and multiply, be more healthy, and more authentically reflect God’s plan. Local churches are the most fundamental and strategic points of evangelism and discipleship. The challenge of the denomination is to keep finding the best ways to serve, strengthen, and multiply congregations.
  •  SERVANT LEADERSHIP: Wesleyans respect leadership that is placed over them, while realizing that the authority and effectiveness of spiritual leadership is not primarily bestowed, but earned, and is characterized by a loving and willing heart of obedience that serves God and mankind gladly. Wesleyans desire to be leaders in serving.
  • UNITY IN DIVERSITY: There is intrinsic value in every person. Biblical unity becomes all the more important and beautiful in the light of the wide-ranging differences in personalities, cultures, races, languages, talents, and perspectives. Finding unity and mutual love in Christ eliminates devaluation and deprivation of life to one another.

Our Dreams

OUR BIGGEST DREAM IS TO HAVE A CHURCH ALIVE WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE BOOK OF ACTS AND LIVED OUT WITH THE PASSION OF THE EARLY DISCIPLES.

Our Biggest Dreams are to have a Church alive with the Spirit of the Book of Acts and Lived Out with the Passion of the Early Disciples.

Just Imagine:

  • People ignited in passion; living, loving and following Jesus!
  • Movements of people who have reborn passions and surrendered lives.
  • Followers who are living out their faith in a culturally and relevant way!
  • Believers who know how to pray and honestly expect God to answer prayer!

“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit.”   Acts2:14a – NIV

“After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly. All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had.  With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and much grace was upon them all.  There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales  and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.  Acts 4: 31-35  NIV

 

 Imagine that this could happen today!
