"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God." 1 John 4:7

Whoever you are, you are welcome and loved.

Our Movement -
Balanced & Methodism

John Wesley, the first mover of Methodism, envisioned a movement that would awaken and enliven the faith of all Christians, regardless of denomination. Arguing about what exactly to believe only wastes time, creates division, and distracts from growing holiness. He wrote: "And how shall we choose among so much variety? No man can choose for, or prescribe to, another. But every one must follow the dictates of his own conscience, in simplicity and godly sincerity. He must be fully persuaded in his own mind and then act according to the best light he has. Nor has any creature power to constrain another to walk by his own rule. God has given no right to any of the children of men thus to lord it over the conscience of his brethren; but every man must judge for himself, as every man must give an account of himself to God... my only question at present is this, "Is thine heart right, as my heart is with thy heart?... "If it be, give me thy hand." I do not mean, "Be of my opinion." You need not: I do not expect or desire it. Neither do I mean, "I will be of your opinion." I cannot, it does not depend on my choice: I can no more think, than I can see or hear, as I will. Keep you your opinion; I mine; and that as steadily as ever. You need not even endeavour to come over to me, or bring me over to you. I do not desire you to dispute those points, or to hear or speak one word concerning them. Let all opinions alone on one side and the other: only "give me thine hand."

We, too, want to join hands to grown and share God's love, to become full of the Holy Spirit and fully alive. So we are what we call a "balanced church." People across the theological spectrum, and every other spectrum, reside peacefully together, agreeing to disagree on anything not essential to following Christ, so that each person's spiritual journey can be prayerfully supported. We seek the means of God's grace together.
