Plan of Salvation ___________ 

Tell others about Jesus like John Wesley did:

 We who are Christians are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________

Directed by John Jackman.  Starring: Burgess Jenkins, June Lockhart, Kevin McCarthy, R. Keith Harris, and Carrie Ann Hunt.

Step into eighteenth-century England and experience the transformation of one man whose heart-wrenching search for peace haunts him even as he pours himself into a life of service and evangelism.  

Now, for the first time, Wesley's fascinating spiritual struggle is presented in this award-winning feature film based on John's own private journals.  

Young John Wesley works hard to earn his own salvation, but still cannot find lasting peace.  

His headstrong ways and self-righteous attitude bring conflict and rejection wherever he goes.  

Follow his journey across the stormy seas to the colony of Georgia where he fails as an evangelist, while breaking the heart of the beautiful Sophy.  

In defeat, the newly humbled Wesley returns to England in search of genuine faith--and the discovery of God's grace.  

John Wesley is well known as the spiritual father of Methodism.  

His heartfelt struggles, his passion for authentic faith expressing itself through meaningful kingdom work, and his message of saving grace resonate with audiences of all ages and denominations. ___________________________

Our Comments:

This is a movie on videotape rather than on film, and does not cover in depth as many details of John Wesley's life (making it more slow-moving) as the excellent 1950's Film: John Wesley by J. Arthur Rank (we gave it 5 Stars).

The two works complement each other well, for where this movie excels is in its presentation of the process of John Wesley's conversion, showing more in depth the part played by the Moravians and of the salvation message of receiving Christ.
