Religion

People need not just to accept but also to grow in relationship with God. God's grace and love constantly prompts and seeks to transform us, and so we should continually seek and pray to grow in holiness and love.

Politics

The diversity inside the Church should be respected and supported. Open debate within the Church on certain political and social issues should be encouraged.

Views

The strong feature of Methodism is that prayers are not only led by an ordained minister, but often by a local preacher - a lay person who has been trained and authorized to lead worship and preach.
