Methodism

Methodism is a system of religious faith and practice. It originated in a movement dubbed the Holy Club, founded by John and Charles Wesley in 1729 at the University of Oxford, England. Members of the Holy Club wished to deepen their personal life of faith and grow in compassion. The movement developed into a number of overlapping groups in various colleges at Oxford and influenced many Protestant denominations. It eventually gave its name to a new denomination, the Methodist church. A concern for spiritual practice, the method through which one may grow in God's love and in service to the human family, is the reason the word "method" stands in its name.
