Methodist Protestant Church

History of the Michigan Conference of the Methodist Protestant Church

The Methodist Protestant Church, founded in 1828 by former members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, remained Wesleyan in doctrine and worship but removed the role of bishops and gave an increased role to laity and local clergy. The Michigan Conference of this new denomination was not established until 1842 and existed until the Methodist union of 1939 brought three major branches of Methodism back together. There is no published history of Michigan's Methodist Protestants, but this page provides access to some archival holdings on this denomination.
