Hyde Park Korean United Methodist Church, Chicago, IL

updated more than 2 years ago

Description

John Wesley was an ardent opponent of slavery. Many of the leaders of early American Methodism shared his hatred for this form of human bondage. The United Brethren in Christ took a strong stand against slavery, as church members could not sell a slave, and by 1837 ruled that slave owners could not continue as members.
As the nineteenth century progressed, it became apparent that tensions were deepening in Methodism over the slavery question.The Civil War dealt an especially harsh blow to The Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Its membership fell to two-thirds its pre-war strength.
Many of its churches lay in ruins or were seriously damaged.
