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 use of force may be supported in extreme situations and when the need to do so is beyond reasonable doubt.

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'.
