About Us

Aldersgate is a United Methodist congregation recognizing and cherishing a wide variety of religious traditions among our membership. We are committed to Biblical preaching, celebrating the Christian means of grace, creative study, and programming and Christian fellowship.

We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ calls us to active worship and responsible citizenship and are pleased to take an active role in ministry and service in Southwest Allen County and Fort Wayne.

What We Believe

"In Essentials, Unity;  In Non-Essentials, Liberty;  In All Things, Charity" John Wesley

Our Essentials
1. God's presence, love and grace surround us, go before us, and greet us on the way.

2. Commitment to Jesus Christ, as savior and Lord, is essential to being a Christian.  When we are baptized we become members of the community of faith.

3. The goal of the Christian life is to attain during our lifetime all the desired qualities of love enabled by the Holy Spirit.

4. The Bible contains everything we need to know for the practice of the Christian life;  it is most responsibly interpreted using the Christian community's best gifts of reason, tradition, and experience.
