In the establishment and growth of the predominantly immigrant/ethnic churches and religions lies half the story of American religion in the next century. Third, the majority of the population had left behind a situation in which church membership and citizenship were Melton’s Encyclopedia of American Religions Essay 1 largely synonymous, and in their new free situation they chose to support no religion, profess no religious affiliation, and join no church. Churches could begin massive efforts to bring the population into the religious life they offered.

However, they were solidly identified with the Church of England, having constituted themselves as a religious society within that church. Because of Wesley’s political tracts, they were also identified with the Tory cause. Like the Anglican priests, the Methodist preachers, except for Francis Asbury (1745–1816), returned to England as a result of the Revolution.
