The living factor that moved all the members was pietism – the doctrine which insists that faith is not merely an intellectual grasp of the pure and true teachings of the Word, but transformation of life based on those teachings and effected through conscious spiritual exercise. Much importance was attached to the influence of the personality of the men at the helm of affairs rather than to the avowed purity of the doctrines they held. It was not a product of a Church like the Wesleyan Methodist Missionary and the Church Missionary Societies which sprang from established churches (Methodist and Anglican respectively). Yet like these societies, it had its antecedent: the Basel Missionary Society sprang directly from the spirit of pietism advocated by Spener and Francke nearly a hundred years before.
