All members are asked to affirm their membership annually through the online form below by April 20th of each year. We will communicate the need for reaffirmation annually and also provide a paper option for those who do not have access to the online form. You can request the form at Guest Services. If a member chooses not to participate in the annual reaffirmation process, this choice will be considered a voluntary withdrawal from membership. A person who has withdrawn may reapply for membership at any time, but this annual reaffirmation is a requirement to remain a member.

Affirmations

In keeping with the requirements of The Wesleyan Church for its members to make an annual reaffirmation of their commitment to Christ and their decision to remain an active member of Keystone Church and The Wesleyan Church International, I affirm the following:

We believe in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ the Son suffered in our place on the cross, that He died but rose again, that He now sits at the Father’s right hand until He returns to judge every person at the last day.

We believe in the Holy Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God.

We believe that by the grace of God every person has the ability and responsibility to choose between right and wrong, and that those who repent of their sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are justified by faith.

We believe that God not only counts the believer as righteous, but that He makes such persons righteous, freeing them from sin’s dominion at conversion, purifying their hearts by faith, perfecting them in love at entire sanctification, and providing for their growth in grace at every stage of spiritual life, enabling them through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to live victorious lives.

1. Christ is the only Head of the Church, and the Word of God the only rule of faith and conduct.

2. No person who loves the Lord Jesus Christ, and obeys the gospel of God our Savior, ought to be deprived of church membership.

3. Every person has an inalienable right to private judgment in matters of religion, and an equal right to express personal opinions in any way which will not violate the laws of God or the rights of others.

4. All church hearings should be conducted on gospel principles only; and no minister or member should be excommunicated except for immorality, the propagation of unchristian doctrines, or for neglect of duties enjoined by the Word of God.

5. The pastoral or ministerial office and duties are of divine appointment, and all ordained ministers in the church of God are equal; but ministers are forbidden to be lords over God’s heritage, or to have dominion over the faith of the saints.

6. The Church has a right to form and enforce such rules and regulations only as are in accordance with the Holy Scriptures, and may be necessary or have a tendency to carry into effect the great system of practical Christianity.

7. Whatever power may be necessary to the formation of rules and regulations is inherent in the ministers and members of the Church; but so much of that power may be delegated from time to time, upon a plan of representation, as they may judge necessary and proper.

8. It is the duty of all ministers and members of the Church to maintain godliness and oppose all moral evil.

9. It is obligatory upon ministers of the gospel to be faithful in the discharge of their pastoral and ministerial duties, and it is also obligatory upon the members to esteem ministers highly for their works’ sake, and to
render them a righteous compensation for their labors.
