Primitive Methodists and white-hot faith

Movements that change the world

Steve Addison identifies white-hot faith as a common characteristic of movements in his book “Movements that Change the World”.

The Primitive Methodists were men and women of zealous white-hot, faith. The earnest faith of the early founders was summarised thus: “They were men who lived for souls, and could not live unless souls were saved - often they could not sleep upon their beds, if the converting work was not progressing - they fasted, prayed, wept, groaned, struggled, walked, talked, preached, wrote, laboured, believed for the salvation of sinners.”

Quoted in History of the Primitive Methodist Connexion, H B Kendall, p13
