Sermon Title: "Salvation by Faith"
Scripture: Ephesians 2:1-9
Guest Preacher: Rev. John Wesley
John Wesley is known for two things: co-founding Methodism and his tremendous work ethic. In the 1700's, when land travel was by walking, horseback or carriage, Wesley logged more than 4,000 miles a year. During his lifetime he preached about 40,000 sermons. Wesley could give today's experts lessons in efficiency. He was a natural organizer and approached everything diligently, especially religion. It was at Oxford University in England that he and his brother, Charles, participated in a Christian club in such an orderly manner that critics called them "methodists", a title which they gladly embraced. Rev. Wesley (a.k.a. Craig Berken) will preach one of his many sermons.
