The life with Christ has nothing to do with being in a "church" atmosphere for all eternity. God’s salvation involves far more. He is planning to make his children productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.


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


The strongest feature of Methodism is that ordinary people play a major role in the running of the Church.
