Wesleyans ROCK!

I got some news today: I'm a Wesleyan, which according to the official website of the Wesleyan Church is a good thing. I took a test to detemine my theological worldview. A link to the test was posted on the leadership blog for my church. It was definitely an interesting exercise. I highly recommend it.

Ordinarily, I would assail you with a litany of justifications for my responses to the many challenging and highly debatable items. But not this time. I'm going to let you complete the test unbiased. Here are my results, though. For the record, this description of Wesleyans doesn't do them justice. We're much more complex and cool.

You scored as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan. You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God's grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavly by John Wesley and the Methodists.

Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan








Neo orthodox


Reformed Evangelical


Modern Liberal


Roman Catholic


Classical Liberal

Your top two were also my top two, but in reverse order, and nearly identical percentages. Hmmmmmm.

Yeah, most of the people from my church who took it were either Wesleyan or Emergent/Postmodern. One fundamentalist and one charismatic. It's interesting to see the way the results line up with the personalities and ministries. Veddy inta-desting.

You scored as Emergent/Postmodern. You are Emergent/Postmodern in your theology. You feel alienated from older forms of church, you don't think they connect to modern culture very well. No one knows the whole truth about God, and we have much to learn from each other, and so learning takes place in dialogue. Evangelism should take place in relationships rather than through crusades and altar-calls. People are interested in spirituality and want to ask questions, so the church should help them to do this

Emergent/Postmodern 89%
Modern Liberal 68
Classical Liberal 64
Neo orthodox 64
Charismatic/Pentecostal 46
Roman Catholic 43
Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan 36
Reformed Evangelical 25
Fundamentalist 7

This was fun! A bit interesting given i was raised Roman Catholic. The emergent/post modern is certainly a reflection of my relativist views, i suspect.
