To Exalt Jesus Christ. We are a Christ-centered denomination in both preaching and focus. Exalting Christ is the foundation and focus of our evangelism, discipleship and compassion. Jesus said, "...I, when I am lifted up ... will draw all men to myself." (John 12:32 NIV) It is the heartbeat of our worship, corporately and in the life and service of our believers.
- Evangelizing The Lost. We recognize the condition of all persons outside of the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and fully embrace the responsibility of the Great Commission. This authentically expresses the passion of our Savior, who came to seek and to save the lost.
- Discipling The Believers. We accept the Great Commission's instruction for us to go and make disciples. This includes inviting believers to receive God's gift of a holy heart, enabling them to live holy lives, fulfilling the Great Commandment to love God completely and their neighbors as themselves. The secret of reforming society is the transformation of persons by the grace of God.
- Equipping The Church. We provide preparation for service and ministry through the effective training, nurturing, education, and development of the people of God. Our means, methods and tools are deployed to prepare the saints for the work of the ministry.
- Ministering To Society. We wholeheartedly desire to share the benefits of the gospel with all people everywhere. This includes both evangelism and compassion. We were born in societal reformation and affirm that holy lives bring a holy impact upon culture.
- Biblical Authority: The Bible is the highest source of written authority for God's plan for his people; it reveals how to live out that plan, individually and corporately. Beliefs, practices and priorities are to be anchored in clear biblical teachings.
- Christlikeness: Jesus Christ is the defining feature of God's will for all humankind. In Christ is found the highest and most practical meaning and clearest example for holy living or godliness. Christ is both example and strength as Wesleyans pursue integrity, excellence, faith, hope and love.
- Disciple-Making: Making disciples is a clear mandate from Christ. This requires a strong focus on evangelism and training in spiritual growth and holy living. Done effectively, this will produce and promote growth and health in and among the churches.
- Local Church Centered: The denomination exists in local churches joined together by common beliefs, values and practices and committed to a common mission. Local churches are the most fundamental and strategic points of evangelism and discipleship. The challenge for denominational servant-leaders is to keep finding the best ways to serve and strengthen congregations.
- Servant Leadership: Wesleyans respect leadership that is placed over them, while realizing that the authority and effectiveness of spiritual leadership is not primarily bestowed, but earned and manifested by a loving and willing heart of obedience that serves God and mankind gladly. Wesleyans desire to be leaders in serving.
- Unity In Variety: There is intrinsic value in every human person. Unity becomes all the more important and beautiful in light of the wide ranges of difference in personality, culture, race, gender, talents and perspectives. Loving each other eliminates devaluation and deprivation of life to one another.
- Cultural Relevance: Wesleyans are called to keep serving the present age. The Church respects and builds on its past without becoming its slave. Wesleyans are "culture informed" for the sake of reaching people for Christ, but not "culture captives," in the sense of surrendering core values, beliefs and behaviors.
