All need to be saved:

"All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23 Sin is deep seated self-seeking from which no-one is immune.


All can be saved:

We can be saved from the consequences of our sin through the work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. This is a  Gospel (Good news) for everyone - "God sent the Son into the world..... that the world might be saved through Him." John 3:17


All my know themselves saved:

Through the promises in Scripture, the intense conviction of God's graciousness to us individually, and a different outlook on life leading to a changed quality of living - "If you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9


All may be completely saved:

This is were scriptural holiness comes in, being made perfect in love for God and our fellow Humans.

All can be saved

All need to be saved.

All may know themselves saved

All may be saved to the uttermost


Methodists have always been clear that no one is beyond the reach of God's love. Salvation is there for everyone who turns to God, and not just for a chosen few.
