As I have read more about this Theology I have come to one solid foundation thought of John Wesley to build my understanding from 

Wesley believed that the living core of Christianity was revealed in Scripture; and the Bible was the sole foundational source of theological development.  This seems to be ground zero for all of his theological thoughts.  This should be an interesting journey.

The most crucial point for any theology is the way to salvation......Certainly not by works as is most denominations world wide.

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

As I understand Wesley, is salvation came from God's grace

In studying Wesley I have concluded he is not what I would call a Theologian's theologian.  He founded no system even though he is considered a systematic theologian.  He really belonged to no one school of thought, but seemed to embrace many for what became his Methodist approach.  He was more like the well-educated folk preacher that had a system and method.  He did his theology in service to the church and mission.   If not for the Methodist church growth, he would have gone unnoticed in the world of theology.

Just my thoughts at this point as I dig deeper.

Yes, He was a  rather complex individual
