As a Gothic sanctuary, Wesley UMC was built to include various symbols of the Christian faith. These include symbols such as the Greek letters the "Alpha and the Omega" signifying the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet or the beginning and the end of life. There is the grapevine. There is the shield. Many other symbols, colors, and concepts are employed in the sanctuary in wood, stone, and in the stained glass.
|Grapevine - Symbol of the teaching of Jesus that " I am the Vine; ye are the Branches."|
|Shield - recalls Ephesians 6: 16 " Take up the Shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench the fiery darts of the wicked."|
|A combination of the Fleur-de-Lis ( a symbol of the Trinity) and the four lobed blossom (symbol of the four Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John)|
|The Shield with Cross|
