A Methodist is a person who is a member of the evangelical Protestant Church formed according to the principles of Charles and John Wesley in England in the early 18th century. Methodists believe in the social responsibility of Christians for the good of public welfare. In the US, the Methodist group is second in the Protestant group, second to Baptists.

The Methodist revival has its roots in 18th century England. This denomination was established by some men, which included the prominent John Wesley along with Charles, who was his younger brother. It was a movement that commenced within the Church of England, emphasizing Bible study along with a methodical tackling of scriptures as well as Christian living.

Just as with Christianity in general, Methodism too has its subsets. Theologically speaking the majority of Methodists would be considered Arminian, highlighting that essentially everyone can be saved (in place of Calvinist predestination), as well as low church in liturgy. However, in Wales you will also find several Calvinistic Methodists. Typically Methodist mission revolves around Proclamation, Evangelism, Incorporation and essentially Servanthood.

Methodists learn to love all the human equally. They take two sacraments on their life. Their belief of trinity is different than others, as a single entity with three forms. They also oppose gambling and alcohol

I would like to think we all could be methodists if we all agreed upon a same method - maybe like Descarte.
