Religious Tradition: Unclassified
Description: The Methodist Episcopal Church, originally formed in 1784, experienced a schism in 1844 over the issues of slavery and the power of the General Conference to discipline bishops. This schism resulted in two denominations: the Methodist Episcopal Church (northern branch), and the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. It was not until 1939 that this division was healed in a merger that would create the Methodist Church (1939-1968).
