Dr. Wesley Vincent – Former Fundamentalist & Evangelical

Wesley Vincent | March 2, 2015 No Comments

As a young boy, Wesley was brought up in a Nazarene church. There he learned the importance of freewill and holiness in the Christian life. Later his parents moved and they began attending a Calvinist Baptist congregation, where he was taught the sovereignty of God, predestination and total depravity. When he was about 12, the family moved back to a Nazarene congregation. From this he gained a realization of the the doctrinal divisions amongst Protestants. While attended Wheaton College, he attended a Presbyterian church seeking worship centered on God. After he was married and living in New England, his family joined and evangelical Episcopal parish. From his experience of conflicting theologies he came to realize the fallacies of sola Scriptura. Thus began his long journey home to the Catholic Church, into which he and his wife were received in 2008.
