The Methodism or the Methodist movement is a group of historically related denominations of Protestant Christianity which derive their inspiration from the life and teachings of John Wesley. George Whitefield and John’s brother Charles Wesley were also significant early leaders in the movement. It originated as a revival movement within the 18th-century Church of England and became a separate denomination after Wesley’s death. The movement spread throughout the British Empire, the United States, and beyond because of vigorous missionary work, today claiming approximately 80 million adherents worldwide

The Syncretism of Eric Michel Ministries International is base on a merge of two main concepts Methodist and Baptist with a view of a progressive Christianity as explained by John Shelby “Jack” Spong is a retired American bishop of the Episcopal Church. From 1979 to 2000, he was Bishop of Newark (based in Newark, New Jersey). He is a liberal Christian theologian, religion commentator and author. He calls for a fundamental rethinking of Christian belief away from theism and traditional doctrines. That is why we call or name ourself Independent and liberal Christian.
