Our Values

* “… loving God with all our hearts and soul and strength, as having first loved us, as the fountain of all the good we have received, and of all we ever hope to enjoy; and the loving of every soul which God hath made. Every [person] on earth, as our own soul…. This religion we long to see established in the world… having its seat in the heart, in the inmost soul, but ever showing itself by its fruits; continually spring forth, not only in all innocence—for love worketh no ill to our neighbor—but likewise in every kind of beneficence, spreading virtue and happiness all around.”
John Wesley Sermon, “On Laying The Foundation of a New Chapel,” 1777
