Our Mission & Beliefs

Sault Wesleyan Church’s mission is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We are simply a group of ordinary, everyday people who have found out that Jesus loves us and has called us to live for Him.

Serving others, especially our community, is a priority for our church. We are called to love God and love others, and we strive to do that on a daily basis. You don’t have to dress up or be ‘perfect’ to come to SWC…come as you are, and meet a God who loves you, just as you are.

SWC is a 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 teaching. We believe that God wants 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.

The following are terms descriptive of who Wesleyans are and
why they do what they do. They describe the “soul of the Church”:

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 we 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 to serve local congregations. Local churches are the most fundamental and strategic points of evangelism and discipleship. The challenge of the denomination is to keep finding the best ways to serve and strengthen congregations.

SERVANT LEADERSHIP: We 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.
We desire to be leaders in serving.

UNITY IN DIVERSITY: There is intrinsic value in every person. Unity becomes all the more important and beautiful in the light of the wide ranges of difference in personality, culture, race, talents, and perspectives. Loving each other eliminates devaluation and deprivation of life to one another.
