Being a Christian in the Wesleyan Tradition

Being a Christian in the Wesleyan Tradition


by John O. Gooch

Discover what it truly means to be an involved member of your church and grow in your faith.

Unlike many books on church membership, Being a Christian in the Wesleyan Tradition does not spend a lot of time on bylaws or matters of organization. Instead, the author speaks to the heart of our participation: how we belong, what we believe, how we live, and the possibilities for our growth in faith.

Christians belong to a community of faith, John Gooch stresses. Being a Christian in the Wesleyan Tradition shows how you can live your faith in private and public acts of devotion and ministry.
