Religion

The objective people wish to attain is not merely to be saved from something. God wishes his children to be saved to something.

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 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'.
