Vision

Edenton Street is a community of faith inviting all to encounter Jesus, preparing believers to deepen their dependence on God, caring for those who are hurting, and sending ordinary people into the world equipped to do extraordinary things.

Some of us are young, and some are old. There are those of us who are steeped in tradition and others of us who worship in a more contemporary style. There are those of us who are new to the faith and those who are just beginning to explore a faith. Of course, there are those of us who have been here for decades.

We hold in common our desire to be on a journey, though we find ourselves at many different places on the road. Edenton Street Church is a place where people can ask questions, learn to pray, and grow in faith. It is also a place where we can walk shoulder to shoulder in community with others. We are a church community which seeks to offer hope and healing — through face to face engagement — with those who are hurting.

Our roots go back to an eighteenth century Englishman John Wesley. He, like us, had a great concern for the soul but never at the expense of a like concern for the physical needs of others. He was a man of faith and works! That is the kind of church we seek to be.

So, who are we? We are a people who believe in grace and seek to live out the love which was taught and evidenced by Jesus. We are a church that believes that God gives second chances and welcomes us back.

We invite you to discover for yourself who we are.
