John Wesley was the founder of Methodism. Born on 17 June 1703 in England, Wesley sought to discover how to truly practise and apply his Christian faith. He spent two years in the American colonies as missionary. Wesley did not conform to any established church. After he returned to England, Wesley attended a Moravian meeting in London. After listening to a reading of the preface to Luther's commentary on Romans, Wesley began to preach on salvation by faith, and God's grace "free in all, and free for all." Soon after this, he took to preaching at open-air services, wherever he was invited. After the Moravians developed some practices and policies with which he disagreed, he took his followers and developed his own society, the Methodist Society in England.Wesley was a logical thinker, and a fluent and powerful preacher who also expressed himself clearly, concisely and forcefully in writing. His sermons were characterised by spiritual earnestness and simplicity. Although Wesley died on 2 March 1791, many follow Wesley's teachings today. He continues to be the primary theological interpreter for Methodists the world over, the largest Wesleyan body being The United Methodist Church. (information from today.wmit.net - June 17)
