Church 4 Battle Creek First Wesleyan Church is an elder governed, staff led congregation that strives to equip God’s people for meaningful ministry. We are a congregation of the Wesleyan Church, and our pastors are licensed/ordained under their spiritual authority. We are aligned in ministry style and philosophy with the Willow Creek Association, an umbrella organization of churches who are dedicated to turning irreligious people into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.  Additionally, First Wes undergoes a full financial review by an independent CPA firm at the close of each fiscal year.
