John Wesley's Vision of Sustainable Renewal
am not afraid that the people called Methodists should ever
cease to exist either in Europe or America. But I am afraid lest
they should only exist as a dead sect, having the form of
religion without the power. And this undoubtedly will be the
case unless they hold fast both the doctrine, spirit, and
discipline with which they first set out.”
