OUR HISTORY

Our Core Values & Beliefs


Wesleyan’s believe in one God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the Savior of all men and women who put their faith in Him alone for eternal life. We believe that those who receive new life 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 seek to establish our faith and actions on its teaching. We believe God wills for people everywhere to know Him and that the purpose of the Church is to tell the world about Christ through its worship, witness, and loving deeds.

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


BIBLICAL AUTHORITY:

The Bible is the highest source of written authority for God’s plan for His people; it reveals how to live out that plan, individually and corporately. Beliefs, practices, priorities are to be anchored in clear biblical teachings.


CHRISTLIKENESS:

Jesus Christ is the defining feature of God’s will for all humankind. In Christ is found the highest and most practical meaning and clearest example for holy living or godliness. Christ is both example and strength as Wesleyan’s pursue integrity, excellence, faith, hope, and love.


DISCIPLE-MAKING:

Making disciples is a clear mandate from Christ. This requires a strong 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 serve local congregations. 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 and strengthen congregations.


SERVANT LEADERSHIP:

Wesleyan’s respect leadership that is placed over them, while realizing that the authority and effectiveness of spiritual leadership is not primarily bestowed, but earned and manifested by a loving and willing heart of obedience that serves God and mankind gladly. Wesleyan’s desire to be leaders in serving.


UNITY IN DIVERSITY:

There is intrinsic value in every person. Unity becomes all the more important and beautiful in the light of the wide ranges of difference in personality, culture, race, talents, and perspectives. Loving each other eliminates devaluation and deprivation of life to one another.


Our Mission:  To reach people far from God with the gospel of Jesus Christ and teach them to be fully devoted followers of Jesus.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR

    "We praise God that He has led you to our Church website.   We hope that you will wander through the pages of our site and that it may lead you to come join us on a Sunday morning for Service, or a Wednesday night for prayer meeting or maybe even an early Sunday morning for Bible Study.  If you need prayer or there is some way that we can be a blessing to you, please reach out to me.  If you do feel led to join us at one of our gatherings, you can expect to be welcomed and  loved on, by our congregation, in a way that is probably foreign to you, but a blessing.  After a Sunday morning service we typically linger, share some refreshments and snacks and just fellowship.  Please consider coming to join us.  We'd love to meet you.  If you would like additional information or there is someway that we might be able to bless you, please reach out to me at WCCSPastor@gmail.com."

 

Hope to see you soon!
