Beecher, in an apparent affirmation of the evangelical method, declared in his sermon "The Faith Once Delivered to the Saints" that the original Christian sect spread because of revivalism: It was under the preaching of the word, that men were pricked in their hearts, and cried out, 'Men and brethren, what shall we do to be saved?' And it was by the moral transformation which attended the apostolic answer to this question, and not by the power of miracles, that the Gospel defied opposition, and spread during the first three hundred years. 21 Like Beecher, Taylor also stressed the power of preaching in his contributions to New Light Calvinism.

By the mid-nineteenth century, there were small numbers of Protestant missions, principally Baptist, Methodist, and Episcopalian. There is an extent to which we are inevitably northern protestants. And we are suppose to believe the same gospel. Leaders of this movement preached a strong independent message, which struck a chord with the common people of the day, whom related the words of the message to their current situation.

The Methodist combination of simplicity, organization, and lay participation not only made it the largest Protestant denomination but also decisively influenced the other frontier churches.

Anglican churches outside of England are often referred to as "Episcopal" churches, a reference to their form of government. Sola gratia is the teaching that salvation comes by divine grace.
