John Wesley – was an English cleric and theologian who, with his brother Charles and fellow cleric George Whitefield, founded Methodism. In June 1720, Wesley entered Christ Church, Oxford. In 1724, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts. For all of his outward piety, Wesley sought to cultivate his inner holiness or at least his sincerity as evidence of being a true Christian. In 1738, at a Moravian meeting in Aldersgate Street, London, in which he heard a reading of Martin Luther‘s preface to the Epistle to the Romans, it revolutionized the character and method of his ministry.
