The Wesleyan Church
The Wesleyan Church is a Protestant, evangelical, holiness denomination with a rich heritage. We teach that a victorious Christian life is possible for all believers through the experience of both forgiveness of sins and the fullness of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Wesleyans 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 enjoy a dynamic personal relationship with Him and that the purpose of the Church is to tell the world about Christ through its worship, witness, and loving deeds.
The name “Wesleyan” is in honor of John Wesley, a priest in the Church of England who became the inspiration behind the Methodist movement. It was their disciplined routine, or method of spiritual devotion and social work that earned Wesley and a few of his friends in ministry the nickname “Methodists” beginning in 1735. The name stuck later to the unique new organizational structure Wesley designed to provide prayer and spiritual care for tens of thousands of converts who found Christ through his work.
With World Headquarters in Fishers, Indiana, The Wesleyan Church has nearly 400,000 constituents in 5,000 churches and missions in 80 countries of the world. Our ministries emphasize practical Bible teaching, uplifting worship, and special programs to meet a variety of life needs.
