“Our desire is to walk by faith and in obedience to God’s command,
to share His love with all people, and lead them to the Lord Jesus Christ.”
The Wesleyan Church is an evangelical, Protestant denomination organized for worldwide outreach. We off the Good News that faith in Jesus Christ makes possible a wonderful relationship with God, a holy life empowered by His Spirit for witness and service and assurance of eternal life in heaven.
Our name is in honor of John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, whose emphasis on a life of faith, self-discipline, and perfect love is our example.
There are currently about 3,300 Wesleyan churches in over 40 nations worldwide. In the United States and Canada alone, there are over 1,700 local congregations. Our local church is one of fifty churches in the Eastern New York–New England District of the Wesleyan Church.
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 teachings. 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.
Our local church began in the 1800’s located on the Stony Creek Road. In 1985 the church moved to its current location. In 2005-06 the latest addition to our church (the new sanctuary and community room) was added.
