What is "Essential"?

It seems to me... What is "Essential" is the "Great Divide" in the UMC.
This pretty much sums it up for me: There are many doctrines of a less essential nature... In these we may think and let think; we may agree to disagree. These are the fundamental doctrines... summed up, as it were, in two words, -- the new birth, and justification by faith.
- John Wesley, Sermon 53, On The Death of The Rev. Mr. George Whitefield
