The theoretical concern of the study administered at Wesley United Methodist Church in this paper was to record to what extent a portion of the membership would allow the church to influence society beyond the church doors. This particular study sought to record the permissiveness of allowing social change to occur within Wesley Church itself as a social institution and outside this church as it sought to influence other social institutions (government, business, etc. ). In brief, the Wesley study records the openess to social change on the part of the membership.
