    Our Values (Quotes from John Wesley)

Wesley (June 17, 1703 - March 2, 1791) was an 18th-century English clergyman and Christian theologian who founded the Methodist movement of Protestantism. When he and his brother, Charles Wesley, joined with George Whitefield, Methodism began the first widely successful evangelical movement in the United Kingdom. Methodists, under Wesley's direction, became leaders in prison reform and abolitionism movements. As a theologian, he was a reluctant schismatic, preferring to alter the doctrinal focus of the Anglican Church than to form a new denomination.    -- Wikipedia

1. We value our Christianity as a social religion, not solitary.


    a. "Christianity is essentially a social religion, and to turn it into a solitary religion is indeed to destroy it." 

 2. We value Christianity as a whole, rather than denominational labels. 

     a. "But from real Christian, of whatsoever denominations they be, we earnestly desire not to be distinguished at all."

 3. We value the concept of "Think, and let think."

      a. "
Though we cannot think alike, may we not love alike?"
      b.
"What is our religion if we cannot think and let think?"
      c. "I impose my opinions on none. I make no opinion the term of union with any man; I think and let think. What I want is holiness of heart and life."

4. We value an outward focus. Go to people. 

   a. "How much better is it, when it can be done, to carry relief to the poor than to send it!"

 5. We value open communication among ourselves. 

 6. We value openness, care, and concern.

7. We value acceptance.

8. We value an involvement in ministry of every person (lay people).
