God gives us the Holy Spirit, and when we respond, there is no limit to what the grace of God is able to do in a human life.

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'.
