We are part of the Wesleyan denomination. Being part of a denomination allows legal and theological accountability and gives opportunity for forming partnerships to achieve greater impact.
The Wesleyan Church originally comes out of the protestant reformation movement and has significant ties with “Methodism.” John Wesley, whose work significantly influenced the founding of the Wesleyan church, laid out four biblical truths we still hold today:
1. Salvation is receivable for ALL people.
2. Jesus offers forgiveness from ALL sin.
3. Salvation is received by faith in Jesus, not earned through works.
4. At salvation, we are filled with the Holy Spirit.
