Where Christ Wesleyan Church is today and where we are going all began with a single step of faith over 100 years ago that started a journey to share the light of Jesus Christ with our world. We are one inter-generational church with more than 1,700 people attending each weekend in multiple locations. We are seeking the Lord’s direction for our future and watching God’s plans for us unfold as we continue to share the light!

We don’t ever want to forget all He’s done for us, so here’s a glimpse from the past…
