Sermons at Aldersgate

We currently have limited in-person attendance to reduce the risk of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can join us for online worship on Facebook, YouTube, and our worship page, where you can also register for in-person worship.

An old creed of the Church says that when the Bible is faithfully proclaimed by a teacher and faithfully received by listeners then it becomes the living Word of God today.

In other words, there’s something revolutionary about reading, interpreting, and receiving in your heart these words about Jesus.

At Aldersgate Church, worship is at the heart of what we do, and our leaders are passionate about presenting the revolutionary message of Jesus Christ in compelling and creative ways.

We invite you not only to watch but to invite one of your friends or neighbors to watch. We have a large “diaspora” of friends and former members who watch the sermons and think of us as their church community.
