that there is nnd over will bo ono holy Chiio-

churches ns a uniform creed. Some huva
adopted it ; but the adoption of that or any
other statement of doctrine is loft to the
united wisdom of the local church. The fol
lowing croad Is a fairly representative ono :
nii : CUIID : :
1. Wo believe in oao Goil , the Father Al
mighty , Matter of heaven and earth , uud of
ull things visible nnd Invisible.
And m Jesus Christ , Ilia only Sin , our
Lord , who is of ono substunco with the
Father , by whom all thing * were undo ;
And in tlio Holy Spirit , the Lord nnd
Giver of lifo-who is sent from the Father
and Son , and who together with tbo Father
nnd Son Is worshipped and glorified.
" . Wo believe that ( ho providence of God ,
by which ho oxccutos his otcrnul purposes
In the uovornmont of the world , is in nnd
over all events ; yet BO that the freedom and
responsibility of man are not hnpairo'l , and
sin is the act of the crouturo ulotio.
U. We bcliovc that man was made In tlio
Imago of God , that ho might know , love und
obey Gail und utijoy him forever ; tint our
ilrst parents by disobedience fell uiulor the
righteouscondomnuilon of Gnd ; and that ull
men arc so alienated from God that there it
no salvation from the guilt and power of sin
except through Gad's lodeominir grace
I. Wo believe that God woula tmva ull mt'ti
return to him ; that to this cud ho nas mudo
himself known , not only through the works
of nature , the couraa of his providence , and
the consciences of men , but also through su-
purnatural revolutions made especially to a
chosen people , and ubovo ull , when the full
ness ot time was come , through JoausChrist ,

mun has found cits highest expression In
the redemption work ot his Son ; who
became man , iinltinir Ins divine nature with

nnd Is the solo anil jiilllclont ground of for-

7. Wo bcllavo that Jesus Christ , after ho
had risen from tbo dead , ascended Into
heaven , whore , as tha ono uiodiutor between
God nnd man , ho carries forward his work
of saving men ; that ho sands the Holy
Spirit to convict thorn of sin , : iud to lead

character through fellowship with Christ ,
the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit , and obedience -
ionco to the truth ; thut a holy llfo U the
fruit and ovidotico of saving faith ; nnd thut
the believer's hopa of contlnuaitco in such a

reign of truth uua love , rlKUteousimss und
peace ; that to Jesus Christ , the Itead of this
kingdom , ChrUtintis are directly rasponsiblo
in faith und conduct ; and that , to him ull
have immediate access without mediatorial
or priestly intervention.
10. Wo believe that the Church ol Christ ,
Invisible und spiritual , comprises ull true bu
Ik'vers , whnsj duty It is to nssoeiato them
selves in cnuichos for the maintenance of
worship , for the promotion of bpiritunl
growth und fellowship , and for the conver

appoint nnd set apart their own ministers ,
nna should co-opor.itu in the work which
Chi 1st has committed to thorn for the

11. Wo believe in the observance of the
Lord's day a * u day of holy n > st und wor
ship ; in the ministry of the word ; and In the
two sucrauionts , which Christ has uppolnte ; !
for his church ; baptism , to bo administered

of cleansing from sin. of man to Christ , und
of the impartntlon of the Holy Spirit ; und

What MothoitistH Ueltpvp.
Hoy. G. M , Hi own , pastor of the Ilnnscom
park M. U. Chinch , says : "In answer to
your question , 'What must u per on believe
In order to become u member of the Method-
1st Umscopal ohuioh , ' Isubmlt the following :
Wo have twenty four articles of lollglon
prepared by John Wesley and mloptod by
the church in 17&4 , und there lias never been
any need for a revision. Another article
lius boon miico added ruferimg to the author
ity of the rulers of tha United States , matting
in ull twcuty.ilvo urticlos.
"AU traces of Calvinism us well us Komish
loanmgs uro uvoidod. Sovor.H important
protests against Pelagian , Romish und other
errors uro iiiuda prominent , as also these
which nro in accordance with the sentiments
of thu universal church. On the Trinity ,
tl.o person und work of Christ ,
thu Holy Spirit , the scripture
canon , original sin , frco grace uud will
Justification by faith , vicarious ntonumont
nnd good works they spc'ik clearly and In
the most orthodox language.
"Our theology from tno beginning has
been thoroughly American , as our in tides
on 'Froo Will' and 'OrhrmulSln'oloaily dem
onstrate. Wo believe in tlio "witness of the
spirit1' ns It Is defined "an inward linpres-
Hion on tha fioul whcrcbv the bpirlt of God
iminodlntuly and directly witnesses with my
spirit thut I nin u child of God ; that nil my
sins uru blotted out , and that I , oven 1 , am
reconciled to God , " The possession of this in
surance is taught to bo the privilege of every
believer , for it Is written , Therefore , being
Justillod by until wo huvn pt-aco with ( led
through our Lord Jesus Christ,1 , and when
wo have peauo wo know it.
"Another doctrine that belongs to MethodIsm -
Ism is sauuillicniioii or , as Mr , Wesley pro-
forroJ calling It , 'Christian perfection ' This
doctrine of all others Is least understood and
hcnco most ubiiHud. It ilous not teach an
voile nor Adamlo perfection , nor thai thoio
Is n stuto attainable In this lite where wo
shall bo frco fiom mlstakoi , Ignorance , in-
llrmitios or temptations , lint It does teach
that the children of God imij bo so unstained
bv faith un.l so filled by the love of God
that all tha powers of the soul may bo saved
from a sinful condition nnd may bo con
trolled In tenderness and lovo. Wo believe
as It written that if wo walk In the light ns
Iio is In the light , wo have fellowship ona
with another und the blood of Jesus Christ
his son clonnsoth , is from all oin nnd Hint
this Is the Christian's privilege.
"Our method of receiving members Is
very simple The diclplino says ; "Lot
great care bo taken in receiving persons on
trial , nnd lot no ono bo enrolled as a pro
bationer In tha church unlosi ha glvo satis
factory ovldenco ot un curnejt doslro to bo
saved from his sins , and to enjoy the fellow
ship of God's people. " The six montht.1
probation required Is greatly misunderstood
by many members of ether churches , It ii
n safeguard against many harmful church
trials. Jf during his six months' probation
n member Is guilty of unchristian conduct ,
und ho is liable to Iio during thut period If
ever , und docs not manifest proper sorrow
lor the K.une , his name can bo dropped from
the loll and ho can claim no further connec
tion with the chinch , but if ho is n
members in full standing , ho can doinund n
trial which always brings icsults moro or
less hurtful However , during his proba
tion ho onjovs every olhor prlvlloso of mem-
borshlp. When persons como to us from
ether orthodox churches that will not irlvo
cortillcatos of membership with which to j
uuito with churches of ether denominations ,
for instance the Unptlst , wo tccolvo them
without requiring the six.months probation ,
but simply on profession of faith. When re-
reived Into full membership persons nro re-
quinid to tcnaw the baptismal covenant , to
tostlfy tj saving faith in Iho Lord Jesus
Christ , to believe In the doctrines of the
scriptures ns sot forth in the articles
of religion of tlio Methodist Episcopal
chtiich. To promise to bo cheerfully
governed bv the rules of the churcn to hold
snored the ordinances of God , mid to con
tribute , according to ubilltj , to the support
of the gospel nnd tno vni ious benevolent
entbi prises of the church .
"It has ever been the design of this chinch
'to provide a bioud and liberal platform upon
which the irpat body of Christians who hold
the essentials ot Christianity might Bland
togolher In love and charily. ' How xvoll the
chinch hns succoodcd in ihis has boon clearly
demonstrated ii her history. "
