 John Wesley’s 44 Sermons

 Paragraph 10 of the Basis of Union of the Uniting Church in Australia says

10. REFORMATION WITNESSES

 

“The Uniting Church continues to learn of the teaching of the Holy Scriptures in the  obedience and freedom of faith, and in the power of the promised gift of the Holy Spirit, from the witness of the Reformers as expressed in various ways in the Scots Confession of Faith (1560), the Heidelberg Catechism (1563), the Westminster Confession of  Faith (1647), and the Savoy Declaration (1658). 

In like manner  the Uniting Church will listen to the preaching of John Wesley in his Forty-Four Sermons (1793).
 

It will commit its ministers and instructors to study these statements, so that the congregation of Christ’s people may again and again be reminded of 

*  the  grace which justifies them through faith, 
*  of the centrality of the person and work of Christ the justifier
*  and of the need for a constant appeal to Holy Scripture.


            “At this time, more especially, will we speak, that 
                                                    “by grace are ye saved through faith”:   (Eph 2:8)
because, never was the maintaining this doctrine more seasonable than it is at this day……… 
  
 It is endless to attack, one by one, all the errors of that Church. But                
                                        salvation by faith 
strikes at the root, and all fall at once where this is established. 
        It was this doctrine, which our Church justly calls 

                         the strong rock and foundation of the Christian religion , …………..                     Nothing but this can give a check to that immorality which hath “overspread the land as a flood.”                                             
by John Wesley  in his sermon  “Salvation by faith”
