First Wesleyan Church is a member of the Wesleyan Church International with headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Wesleyan Church was established in 1843 when a group of churches left the Methodist church with the twin goals of opposing slavery and promoting the doctrine of Scriptural holiness in the daily lives of Christian believers. The Wesleyan Church is a conservative, evangelical denomination which faithfully holds to all the essential, historical doctrines of Christianity such as the full inspiration of the Bible, the fallen state of man, man's need of spiritual rebirth, the deity of Christ, the biblical mandate that Christians are to live holy lives, the future physical resurrection, the historical gospel, etc. (I Corinthians 15:1-6) Additional information regarding the Wesleyan Church and its numerous worldwide ministries may be viewed at wesleyan.org.
