UNITE. WORSHIP. CELEBRATE.
Unity Wesleyan Church began as a mission of the Hayworth Wesleyan Church of High Point, under the leadership of Reverend
David Emery. Hayworth adopted a goal in 1995 to plant a daughter church as a part of its outreach to the greater High Point community.
In early 1998, definite plans began to fall into place. By mid-summer the membership was challenged to pray, asking God if they were
to be part of their daughter church. A group of about ten families responded to God's call to step out in faith to begin this new
Reverend Randy Haithcock, who was serving as Associate Pastor at Hayworth, also responded to God's call to the church
plant. The group began meeting in January of 1999 to plan and organize for the launching of the new church. The Finch Farm Road and
Highway 62 intersection was adopted as the general area where the church would eventually be located. "Unity" was chosen as the church
name, to be a constant reminder of the necessity of uniting together, with Christ, to accomplish God's calling.
suitable for the church, could not be found in the immediate Finch Farm Road community, arrangements were made with Trinity Elementary
School to rent facilities there. Unity's first service to the community was Easter Sunday 1999.
After five years of moving equipment
in and out each Sunday, and meeting in various homes for Wednesday evening groups, the Lord enabled Unity to purchase 4 acres along
with an existing furniture/retail warehouse. Renovations were completed and the church began meeting at its present location on Mother's
OUR VISION OR MISSION
The mission of Unity Wesleyan Church is to bring individuals and families into a life
changing relationship with Jesus Christ, and to help them develop that relationship, so that they discover the benefits of trusting
His love, and the joys of sharing His love at home and beyond, thereby exalting God's name.
* Worship that
celebrates who God is and challenges people to yield to His call in loving obedience.
* Prayer as the foundation of all ministry, and
faith as the footsteps of obedience into ministry.
* Discipling and mentoring of believers to enable them to become a powerful influence
for Christ in their home, extended families, schools, work places and communities.
* Leadership development which identifies, equips
and mentors those whom God calls into leadership. Those leaders will, in turn, reproduce their leadership in others.
* Ministry involvement
based on God's calling, and the discovery and development of each believer's spiritual gift(s).
* Reproducing small groups, which are
a loving/caring context for individual life change and a resource for leadership development and ministry.
* Evangelism that reaches
out to non-Christians through caring relationships, need oriented-ministries, and simple deed of kindness which demonstrate the love
of Christ in practical ways.
* Kingdom building through the multiplication of local churches, beginning with Unity Wesleyan Church
and continuing beyond, through personal involvement in taking the Gospel to our greater community, nation and world.
