    Politics

    The Church is after all a movement which sought to inject passion, direction and purpose into the spiritual lives of the people.

    Religion

    It is the person’s choice to be saved and one can fall from grace by not following God therefore losing salvation.

    Views

    The strong feature of Methodism is the role of local people take for the fabric of church buildings and manses and for the handling of money. They share with ordained ministers the role of setting direction for the churches in a particular area or 'circuit'.
