Asbury Theological Seminary and the Wesleyan Message

We live in a day when many in the church take delight in the novelty of their new doctrinal positions. It is all too common to sit in a church today and hear novel doctrines expounded from the pulpit. Kinghorn reminds us that Wesley advocated no “new” gospel, but the historic Christian faith which was “once for all entrusted to the saints” (Jude 3). Wesley was unshakeable in his commitment to the authority of Scripture, the supremacy of Christ and the sole sufficiency of the Christian gospel. This is a message for all time and every culture.
