About the Book

The Faith Once Delivered is a powerful document for this century. It is timeless and a very significant guide for the future. This should be in the hands of every church leader globally.
—Jo Anne Lyon, General Superintendent Emerita, The Wesleyan Church

Indianapolis, IN This resource is offered as a guide to help clarify the theological trajectory of Methodism for the next century and beyond. It is nothing less than a robust affirmation of the historic Christian faith and the particular gifts of the Wesleyan movement within the larger Church.

This text emerged from the Next Methodism Summit where more than fifty Wesleyan scholars gathered in Alexandria, Virginia, in January of 2022. The event was a time of worship, fellowship, and deep theological work. The end to which they gathered was to describe essential Methodist teachings that can face the challenges posed by cultural, social, and political forces that attempt to subvert the Christian witness and reroute the focus of the Wesleyan community.

This resulting work resources a vital and growing Methodism that is founded on the truth of the Christian faith as it has been received (Jude 3). It is our hope that this message of God’s self-revelation in the story of Israel and the person of Jesus of Nazareth, of wholeness, of love, and true freedom will be proclaimed by Wesleyan believers for centuries to come.
