A SUMMARY OF WESLEYAN BELIEFS


SUMMARY


Wesleyans believe in one God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the Savior of all
persons who put their faith in Him alone for eternal life. We believe 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 Lordís Spirit. We believe in the Bible and seek to establish
our faith and actions on its teachings. We believe 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.


ARTICLES OF RELIGION
Faith in the Holy Trinity
We believe in the one living and true God who is both holy and loving. He created and
preserves everything, lives eternally and His power, wisdom, and goodness are without
limits. We believe in the Trinity; within the divine unity are three co-equal persons:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Though three persons, they are one in nature, power and
eternity.ii


The Father
We believe that God the Father is the Source of everything that exists, whether matter or
spirit. With the Son and the Holy Spirit, the Father made humanity, male and female, in
His image. He relates to people as Father, showing how much He loves them. Because
of this love, God both seeks and receives people who repent of their sins. iii


The Son of God
We believe in Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God. The Holy Spirit conceived Him
and the Virgin Mary gave Him birth, thus, He is both fully God and fully human. He
died on the cross and was buried to be a sacrifice both for original sin and for all human
transgressions, making those who trust in his atoning death right with God. Christ rose
from the dead in His physical body and ascended into heaven where He occupies a place
of honor and intercedes for us. One day He will return to earth to judge every person,
living and dead.iv


The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit who has been sent to us by the Father and the Son. The
Holy Spirit has the same nature, majesty, and glory as the Father and the Son. He is and
always will be truly God. It is through the Spirit that we come to experience Godís grace.
He points out sin and brings new birth to believers. He sets us apart to belong completely
to God and actually changes our nature to be like Godís. When we die, our glorification
will be the Spiritís doing as well. He is always everywhere, assuring, preserving,
guiding, and enabling the believer.v
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins and REPENTING, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise - EPHESIANS 1:10-14 KJV - The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -

The Sufficiency and Full Authority of the Holy Scriptures for Salvation


We believe that the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments form the entirety of Holy
Scripture. They are the inspired and infallibly written Word of God. In their original form, they are completely without any errors and constitute our highest authority. In the
process by which these books have come to us no important teaching has been corrupted.
Absolutely everything we need to know to become a Christian is found in these pages. If
a teaching isnít found in the Bible or canít be proven from the Bible, nobody should have
to accept it as a doctrine necessary for salvation. Both the Old and New Testaments point
to Christ as the source of eternal life and the only Mediator between God and human
beings. What the Scriptures require of us, the Holy Spirit makes possible.vi

Godís Purpose for Humanity
We believe that Godís whole law is summarized in the two great commandments: to love
God with all our heart, and to love our neighbors as much as we love ourselves. These
two laws describe how we ought to live in every aspect of life, reminding us that God is
our King and all people are equal before Him. If we live according to these laws, we will
fully obey God and treat people as we ought.vii


Marriage and the Family
We believe that every person is created in the image of God and that human sexuality
reflects that image in terms of intimate love, communication, fellowship, subordination of
the self to the larger whole, and fulfillment. The Bible uses the marriage relationship as
the supreme metaphor for His relationship with His covenant people, one God with one
people. Godís intends for human sexuality to be expressed only in a monogamous
lifelong relationship between one man and one woman within the framework of marriage.
This is the only relationship which is divinely designed for the birth and rearing of
children and is a covenant union made in the sight of God, taking priority over every
other human relationship.viii


Personal Choice
We believe that humanityís creation in the image of God included the ability to choose
between right and wrong. This means humans are morally responsible for our choices.
But ever since the fall of Adam, people in their own strength have been unable to do the
right because of original sin.

Original sin is not just following Adamís example, but
reflects the corruption of the human nature. Found in every person, this corruption is
passed on from parent to child. Original sin leaves us all far from being what God
intended us to be. We are, by nature, always inclined to evil. We cannot even call on
God or exercise faith to be saved.

But through Jesus Christ, Godís grace makes possible
what we never could or would do on our own. This prevenient grace (i.e. grace which
precedes human response) is freely given to every person, enabling all who choose to
turn and be saved.ix
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins and REPENTING, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise - EPHESIANS 1:10-14 KJV - The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -

The Atonement


We believe that when Jesus offered himself, once and for all, through His sufferings and death on the cross, He provided the perfect redemption and atonement for the sins of the whole world, both for original sin and actual sin. Salvation from sin comes only through


His death and resurrection but this salvation is big enough to save anyone who asks. People who are mentally incompetent from birth, or who became mentally incompetent after conversion, or children under the age of accountability are automatically covered by Jesusí death and resurrection. When children reach the age of accountability, they must personally repent and exercise faith in Christ in order to be saved.x


Repentance and Faith

We believe that for men and women to appropriate what Godís prevenient grace has
made possible, they must voluntarily respond in repentance and faith. God gives the
ability , but the act is our responsibility. Because the Holy Spirit has pointed out sin in
our lives, we repent, willingly changing our mind.

Repentance means we turn our back
on that sin and long to be made righteous. We are truly sorry for our failures and confess
them, paying others back and resolving never to let it happen again. Without this
repentance, saving faith is impossible.

Faith is the only condition of salvation, the kind
of faith that agrees with God about our sinful condition and agrees that the only solution
for that condition is found in the gospel. When we exercise faith, we completely and
wholeheartedly rely on the saving ability of Jesus Christ and completely trust ourselves to
Him as Savior and Lord.

We express our experience of saving faith by public
acknowledging His Lordship and by identifying with His Church.xi
Justification, Regeneration and Adoption
We believe that at the same moment someone repents of personal sin and believes on the
Lord Jesus Christ, he or she is justified, regenerated, adopted into the family of God, and
assured of personal salvation through the witness of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that justification is the judicial act of God in which He counts a person as righteous, grants
that person full pardon of all sin, delivers him or her from guilt, and completely releases
that person from the penalty of sins committed. Justification comes by the merit of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, by faith alone, not on the basis of works.xii


We believe that regeneration, or the new birth, occurs when the Holy Spirit gives life to
our moral nature, making it possible for us to love and obey God. To be regenerated, we
must genuinely repent and believe in Jesus Christ. The regenerated are able to serve God
with their whole heart and to be delivered from the power of sin which reigns over all the
unsaved.xiii


We believe that adoption is when God makes the justified and regenerated believer a full
participant in all the rights, privileges and responsibilities of a child of God.xiv


Good Works
We believe that although good works cannot save us from our sins or from Godís
judgment, they are the fruit of faith and follow regeneration. Therefore God is pleased
with them and accepts them. They reveal a living faith as surely as fruit reveals the type
of tree.xv

Sin After Regeneration

We believe that after we have experienced regeneration, it is possible for us to fall into
sin, for in this life there is no level of holiness from which it is impossible to fall. But
Godís grace is sufficient to keep those who persevere in the faith from falling. By Godís grace anyone who has fallen into sin can find forgiveness and restoration from God, if
truly repentant and possessing faith.xvi


Sanctification: Initial, Progressive, Entire

We believe that in sanctification the Holy Spirit sets the child of God apart to belong
completely to God, , making it possible for the believer to love God wholeheartedly and
to blamelessly obey all Godís commandments. Sanctification begins the moment we are
justified and regenerated. From that moment we are gradually or progressively sanctified
as we walk with God and daily grow in grace and in a more perfect obedience to God.
This prepares for the crisis of entire sanctification, brought about in an instant when we
present ourselves as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God, through faith in Jesus
Christ. In this baptism of Holy Spirit, the human heart is cleansed from all inbred sin.
The crisis of entire sanctification allows us to love God and others and empowers us for
effective service. It is followed by lifelong growth in grace and the knowledge of Jesus.
We continue this life of holiness through faith in the sanctifying blood of Christ and
demonstrate it by loving obedience to Godís revealed will.xvii


The Gifts of the Spirit
We believe that the Gift of the Spirit is the Holy Spirit himself; He is more to be desired
than any gifts He gives. These He wisely distributes to individual members of the
Church to help them fulfill their role in the body of Christ. The gifts of the Spirit,
although not always identifiable with natural abilities, function through them to build up
the whole Church. We donít just use these gifts as we want. They are to be exercised
lovingly under the administration of the Lord of the Church. The real value of the gifts of
the Spirit is measured by how useful they make us to the Church, not by any ecstasy
produced in us.xviii


The Church
We believe that the Christian Church is made up of all who believe in Jesus Christ, its
founder and only Head. Its members have renounced the world, the flesh and the devil,
and have dedicated themselves to continue the work Christ assigned to His church until
He returns. It must preach the pure Word of God, properly administer the sacraments
according to Christís instructions, and live in obedience to all that Christ commands. A
local church is a body of believers formally organized on biblical principles, and meeting
regularly for evangelism, nurture, fellowship and worship.xix

The Sacraments: Baptism and the Lordís Supper


We believe that water baptism and the Lordís Supper are the sacraments of the church.
Christ commanded and ordained these as a means of grace when received through faith.
They are symbols of our profession of Christian faith and signs of Godís gracious
ministry toward us. By them, God enlivens, strengthens and confirms our faith.
The validity of the sacraments does not reside in any particular mode of administration
but rather in obedience to Christís commands and receiving these divine gifts in faith.

We believe that water baptism was commanded by Jesus to be administered to believers
as a symbol of the new covenant of grace. It signifies that we have accepted the benefits
of Christís atonement. By means of this sacrament, believers declare their faith in Jesus
Christ as Savior.xx


We believe that the Lordís Supper commemorates our redemption through Christís death
and expresses our hope in His victorious return. It is also a sign of the love Christians
have for each other. If believers receive the Lordís Supper with faith and a proper and
humble spirit, God communicates grace to the heart through it.xxi

The Second Coming of Christ
We believe that the certainty of the personal, and imminent, and visible return of Christ
inspires holy living and zeal to evangelize the world. At His return Christ will fulfill all
prophecies made concerning His final and complete triumph over evil.xxii


The Resurrection of the Dead
We believe that everyone will experience bodily resurrection from the dead at Christís
Second Coming, as guaranteed by His resurrection. The just will experience the
resurrection of life, and the unjust the resurrection of damnation. The raised body will be
a spiritual body, but the person will be whole and identifiable.xxiii


The Judgment of All Persons
We believe the Scriptures reveal God as the Judge of all and that His judgments are based
on His total knowledge and eternal justice. The culminating moment of His judgment will
be the final meeting of every person before His majestic and powerful throne, where
records will be examined and final rewards and punishments administered.xxiv


Destiny
We believe there is a conscious personal existence after death. The final destiny of each
person is determined by Godís grace and that personís response. How we have
responded will be evident in the moral character resulting from our personal and willful
choices, not from Godís arbitrary decree. Those who choose the salvation God provides
through Jesus will live forever in Heaven with its eternal glory, experiencing the blessed
presence of Christ. Those who neglect this great salvation will spend eternity in hell,
experiencing everlasting misery and separation from God.xxv

COMMUNITY LIFESTYLE STATEMENT


Indiana Wesleyan University, as a college of The Wesleyan Church and the Church
Universal, is a community joined together to further academic achievement, personal
development and spiritual growth. Together the Community seeks to honor Christ by
integrating faith, learning, and living while its member's hearts and lives mature in
relationship to Jesus Christ and each other.


Working in a community with others is a sacred privilege and an opportunity to
demonstrate God's grace. We, therefore, place great value on the quality of relationship in
our Community and expect those relationships to evidence being dependant and
accountable to one another, serving one another in the Community, nation and world,
supporting one another, especially those experiencing personal trials, resolving problems
through loving confrontation, and restoring relationships that have been hurt.


Faith in God's Word should lead to behavior displaying His authority in our lives and to
the relevant demonstration of faith integrated with learning. Scripture teaches that certain
attributes such as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness,
and self-control are to be manifested by members of the Christian Community. By
contrast, Scripture condemns such attitudes as greed, jealousy, pride, lust, needless anger,
an unforgiving spirit, harmful discrimination, and prejudice. Furthermore, certain
behaviors are expressly prohibited by Scripture.

These include theft, lying, dishonesty,
gossip, slander, profanity, vulgarity, adultery, homosexual behavior, premarital sex,
drunkenness, immodesty, and occult practices.
Scripture teaches that all our actions (work, study, play) should be performed to the glory
of God.

We endeavor, therefore, to be selective in choices of entertainment and
recreation, promoting those which strengthen the body of Christ and avoiding those
which would diminish sensitivity to Christian responsibility. In violation of the scriptural
teaching concerning personal dignity and moral purity, individuals are exploited and
degraded by immoral and inhumane action of the pornographic industry. Therefore,
possession of such materials is unacceptable behavior.


Since the body of the Christian is the temple of the Holy Spirit, deserving respect and
preservation of its well being, we disapprove of the use of tobacco in any form and the
use of alcoholic beverages. Under no circumstances should controlled substances such as
marijuana, hallucinogens, depressants, stimulants, cocaine, and narcotics be used,
possessed, sold, or distributed on or away from campus unless prescribed by a physician.


Members are expected not to abuse the use of legal substances.
Scripture teaches the stewardship of God-given resources. Therefore, we disapprove of
gambling (the exchange of money and goods by betting or wagering in its various forms).


We recognize that dancing is an issue about which committed Christians disagree, and that
discretion and maturity are required if dancing is to be an edifying activity. We therefore
covenant together as a community to make decisions about our participation in dancing that
reflect our commitment to Christ, our pursuit of holiness, our desire for purity in relationships,
our adherence to biblical principles, and gracious sensitivity to others.i

So here is my first question: Is Wesleyan Theology a true stand-alone theology, or is it a subset of Systematic Theology? I ask this as they share so many similarities.   When I have gone to book stores this week the books on Wesleyan Theology are found in the Systematic section.

I would think the the section is very telling. It must be know as and accepted as Systematic Theology. Have you heard of John Darby?

I had heard of him, but until you put the name up again, I had not read anything about him.  Interesting fellow, now I want to learn more.

Well, John Nelson Darby was not Wesleyan but he was a dispensational teacher, maybe the first.

According to the two sources, I just looked at, he is considered the Father of dispensationalism.   Wesley lived right before him, so that leads to the question, did Darby come to his Theology because Methodism gave him a way in.

As I have read more about this Theology I have come to one solid foundation thought of John Wesley to build my understanding from 

Wesley believed that the living core of Christianity was revealed in Scripture; and the Bible was the sole foundational source of theological development.  This seems to be ground zero for all of his theological thoughts.  This should be an interesting journey.
