“Herein all the children of God may unite” -John Wesley
Worship Service Sunday at 10:00 am
Come at 9:30 and enjoy our fellowship
*Caught in the storms of life?*
The Holiness Tradition or The Virtue Filled Life is simply a life that works. A life that works is one free of addictions, shame, and guilt. This is not some legalistic exercise, John Wesley understood Holiness in terms of love. The Holiness tradition seeks to remove the chains of this world from our lives so that we might be the amazing person that God’s love seeks to grow us into. We love others and ourselves because He first loved us and His love sets us free!
We also invite you to join us in “Going Deeper” into other facets of the Christian tradition.
