The Wesleyan Covenant Association of Eastern Pennsylvania

Join the vibrant vision of the next Methodism! The Wesleyan Covenant Association (WCA) of Eastern Pennsylvania is committed to the renewal of Biblical holiness in the movement of the Holy Spirit in our day for the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As the local chapter of the WCA, we are creating new opportunities for local partnerships among churches, clergy, and laity. We do this by equipping, encouraging, supporting, and partnering with one another as we labor faithfully to advance the mission of the church: to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

We employ the following values to that end:

  • The Great Commitment: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” – Luke 9:23
  • The Great Commandment: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind… [and] you shall love your neighbor as yourself.” – Matthew 22:37-39
  • The Great Commission: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” – Matthew 28:19-20
  • The Great Requirement: “To do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God.” – Micah 6:8
