Our Denomination

Who are the Wesleyans?

 The Wesleyan Church is an evangelical, Protestant denomination. We offer the good news that faith in Jesus Christ makes possible a wonderful personal relationship with God, a holy life empowered by His Holy Spirit for witness and service, and assurance of eternal life in heaven. Our ministries emphasize practical Bible teaching, uplifting worship, and special programs to meet a variety of life needs.

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. Formed in 1968 resulting from the mergers of several like-minded groups, dating back as far as 1843, The Wesleyan Church has its roots in John Wesley’s Methodism.

Vision Statement

Equipping and empowering churches for Great Commission ministries in the spirit of the Great Commandment.

The Wesleyan Church Logo

The Wesleyan Church

Designed in the graphic arts division of Wesleyan Publishing House, the logo of The Wesleyan Church represents its mission and vision. The “cross” represents the centrality and Lordship of Christ and His atoning and sanctifying work in the heart, which is proclaimed through aggressive evangelism and discipleship. The “dove” symbolizes the accompanying dependency on the Holy Spirit for preaching and teaching His gospel, and for equipping believers to grow in grace and in their commitment to corporate ministry. The “swoosh” connected to the dove symbol typifies both the resulting and growing, worldwide movement of Spirit-filled ministry; and a reminder of the eternal fellowship of The Wesleyan Church.
