Methodism started out as a missional alternative to establishment Christianity, but is now like the establishment Christianity it once critiqued.In this book, Dr. Hunter asks whether enough New Testament Christianity exists in any institutional form of Christianity, including The United Methodist Church, to change the world.If United Methodism is to survive, it must recover bold directions in ministry, in addition to Wesley�s theological vision. If only it was so simple as to stand on Wesley�s shoulders to see our way forward. This means that laity and clergy must be biblically informed, spiritually energized, and systematically organized.If United Methodism is to thrive, it needs to focus on mission, recalling that early Methodism was an extravagant expression of missional...

Throughout this book, Scott J. Jones insists that for United Methodists the ultimate goal of doctrine is holiness. Importantly, he clarifies the nature and the specific claims of official United Methodist doctrine in a way that moves beyond the current tendency to assume the only alternatives are a rigid dogmatism or an unfettered theological pluralism. In classic Wesleyan form, Jones' driving concern is with recovering the vital role of forming believers in the mind of Christ, so that they might live more faithfully in their many settings in our world.

There can be no doubt about what Jesus thought was “the main thing,” the Great Commandments to love God with our heart, soul, and mind and to love neighbor as yourself.What were the non-negotiables for the founder of the Methodist movement, John Wesley? Wesley’s first priority was to grow Christian disciples who loved God and neighbor with a holy love that keeps those Commandments. Using John Wesley as guide, Top 10 United Methodist Beliefs describes the 10 most important United Methodist beliefs, so that we are equipped for every good work. It also describes how a passionate Wesley can still inspire us to travel the road to perfection using these basic beliefs as signposts, not hitching posts, so that we can more fully follow Jesus.But discipleship can be arduous and God’s grace is not...

The next most important document that Wesley delivered to the rapidly expanding societies and congregations was The Wesley Covenant Prayer and Renewal Service from 1755, which are crucial to Methodist identity. This service, a liturgical event in 1755, was preceded by several mornings of teaching from John Wesley about the means of increasing serious religion. Charles Wesley also wrote a hymn supporting the prayer – Come, Let Us Use the Grace Divine.Over the millenia since 1755, many Methodists have used this liturgy on New Year’s Eve –... Less

Lovett Weems, one of the most highly-respected interpreters of contemporary United Methodism, suggests that we start with the following: - What will happen now that the increased giving that United Methodists have enjoyed (despite declining membership numbers) has reached a plateau and begun to decline? - Why, with 34,000 congregations and $6.5 billion in annual giving, can t United Methodists add a net increase of even 1 new disciple of Jesus Christ in a given year? - Why are United Methodist...
