Salvation, definition of

“By SALVATION I mean,

not barely… deliverance from hell, or going to heaven,

but a present deliverance from sin,

a restoration of the soul to its primitive health,

its original purity;

a recovery of the divine nature;

the renewal of our souls after the image of God

in righteousness and true holiness,

in justice, mercy, and truth.

This implies all holy and heavenly tempers,

and by consequence all holiness of conversation”*

*holiness of all forms or types of human conduct

– John Wesley,
A Farther Appeal to Men of Reason and Religion
