Our Beliefs

We believe in one God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the Saviour 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 Wesleyans are and why they do what they do. 


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.


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 Wesleyans pursue integrity, excellence, faith, hope, and love.


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.


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