The Denominational Dilemma

The Wesleyan Covenant Association

The Wesleyan Covenant Association (WCA) connects Spirit-filled, orthodox churches, clergy, and laity who hold to Wesleyan theology. It is an association of individuals and congregations who share a common understanding of our Wesleyan doctrine and a desire to become a vibrant, faithful, growing 21st century church. In light of the widely endorsed Protocol for Reconciliation and Grace through Separation, The WCA believes The United Methodist Church will be the first old mainline Protestant denomination to reach an amicable separation over matters that have divided the church for decades. Although they regret separation, they affirm it’s a necessity for the sake of the greater mission of the church universal. The Wesleyan Covenant Association is a global connection of local churches, laity, clergy, and regional chapters that seeks to partner with like-minded orthodox Christians to build a new Global Methodist Church.
