Definitions of METHODIST PROTESTANT CHURCH
Sort: Oldest first
is the name assumed by a body that seceded from the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1830. The sect differs from its parent church mainly in ecclesiastical government. They abolish the episcopal office and admit the laity to an equal participation with the clergy in administration and government. The slavery question divided this denomination, and both wings are growing slowly, but now are practically one in work and aims. Number of members in 1890, 142,000.
