What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Fredericksburg Wesleyan based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

Bible

We believe that the books of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible constitute the Holy Scriptures. They are the inspired and infallibly written Word of God.

Trinity

We believe in the one living and true God who is holy, loving, eternal, and Creator and Preserver of all things. Within this unity there are three persons of one essential nature, power and eternity—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ 

We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, and His sinless life. He died on the cross and was buried, to be a sacrifice for our sin, and to reconcile us to God through His shed blood. Christ rose bodily from the dead, ascended into Heaven and is at the right hand of God, the Father. We believe in His personal return when He will judge the living and the dead.

Salvation

We believe that Christ’s work on the cross provides the complete redemption and atonement for the sins of mankind. We believe each person must personally accept what God has made possible by repenting of their sin and receiving Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. An individual receives this new life by faith and is then enabled to serve God with the will and affections of the heart.

Holy Spirit 

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling power and fullness enables the Christian to live a Godly life in this present world.

Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ressurection

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. Those who put their faith in Jesus Christ are saved and will be resurrected to eternal life. Those who do not put their faith in Jesus Christ will ultimately be lost and eternally separated from Go
