John Wesley challenged us to do, "All the good we can, in all the ways we can, to all the people we can, as long as we can." In all that we do we emphasize the church is not the building but instead the mission it serves to heal the broken, comfort the grieved, feed the hungry, cloth the naked, and provide shelter to those who have none. When you join our church, you join a mission of service. As Wesley also taught, "We may not all believe alike, but we can certainly all love alike." We are not here to preach our creeds or dogmas; we are here to love the way Jesus loves. There is too much brokenness and pain to worry about needless things.
