They were convinced that the conventional congregational or conversion-type storefront church did not answer the needs of the dispossessed of the big cities. Over time the inner division of the Puritan heritage over free will (from Ockham's influence) versus divine determinism (from Augustine's) led to a gradual decline of predestinarianism and the increase of "Arminianism" (belief in freedom of the will).
