Wesleyan Church membership means we are inviting baptized believers in Jesus Christ who fully agree and abide by our Articles of Religion to belong to the church and participate as members. We align membership with discipleship. Membership is a path of discipleship. View the accompanying videos to fully grasp the significance of "believe, belong, and become."
Believe: maximizing opportunities to reach people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Belong: strengthening relationships and participation in the Christian family and joining in discipleship.
Become: continuing spiritual growth (see the "guides and helps to holy living" in the Discipline 260-268). Spiritual growth through discipleship and leadership training may result in positional leadership, if desired.
SUMMARY OF THE ARTICLES OF RELIGION
We believe in God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ the Son suffered in our place on the cross, that He died but rose again, that He now sits at the Father’s right hand until He returns to judge every person at the last day.
We believe in the Holy Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God.
We believe that by the grace of God every person has the ability and responsibility to choose between right and wrong, and that those who repent of their sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are justified by faith.
We believe that God not only counts the believer as righteous, but that He makes such persons righteous, freeing them from sin’s dominion at conversion, purifying their hearts by faith, perfecting them in love at entire sanctification, and providing for their growth in grace at every stage of spiritual life, enabling them through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to live victorious lives.
