Who We Are

Allegheny Wesleyan College is a Bible college located in Salem, Ohio, and is affiliated with the Allegheny Wesleyan Methodist Connection. The religious teachings that we follow have been accepted on the basis of diligent study of the bible and history with fervent prayer and proper reason in order to obtain and retain a holy life while understanding what has been proven to work in years past. Many of our teachings originated from John Wesley and Arminianism. We are often referred to as an old-fashioned or conservative holiness group.

What We Are Doing

We are strong advocates of the Great Commission. We train Christians (primarily young adults) in great depth to afford them the opportunity to go out to all nations with proper knowledge, passion, and ability to win the lost. Equipping our students with classroom and personal Christian service experience, prior to full-time ministry, provides them with the tools needed to be most effective.  

Allegheny Wesleyan College has a rich heritage of holiness. That heritage has been carefully preserved and is felt in every aspect of the college experience. Biblical values and theology are incorporated into every class and provide a perfect environment for young people to grow spiritually. Not only are the classes focused on providing sound theology, but there are also three weekly chapels and prayer meeting on Wednesday evenings. These times are to allow students to set aside distractions and focus on Jesus. It was during one of those weekly chapel service that God revealed to me my need to be sanctified. God used some classes I was taking and a message in chapel to show me my deep need of a pure heart. It was after that service that I was sanctified. I am incredibly grateful that God led me to Allegheny Wesleyan College and worked through the words of other individuals to speak to my deep need. In the time since God purified my heart, I have continued to draw closer to God and seek His face. Allegheny Wesleyan College and the staff and faculty we have here have played a vital role in pointing me to Christ. My highest desire is that as my soul’s gaze is fixed on Christ and His glory, others would see His pure reflection in my life.
