Bar chart showing growth in loveThere’s much we could say the Christian life and how Collegiate/Wesley fits into the picture, but it comes down to this: Grow in love.

You see, we think that if you focus on that, you’re bound to live life differently, see people in new ways, and find a new and rich meaning for your life. The founder of Methodism, John Wesley, described the Christian life as “going on to perfection.” By perfection he meant not getting an A+ on everything or never making a mistake, but rather he wanted people to see themselves as being “perfected in love.”

Now, like any church, we’re far from being perfect in love–as individuals or as a faith community. But we think you’ll find a loving spirit permeates our worship, our Sunday school classes, our statement of reconciliation and our congregational mission, our outreach to those in need around the world, and much more.

So, we invite you to join us imperfect people as we grow in love through the grace of God. If you’re looking for a church filled with fear, judgment, biblical literalism, or rules, we’re likely not the place for you. But if you too seek to grow in love as a disciple of Jesus, to be compassionate as God is compassionate, then we hope you’ll join us on the journey.
