This chapter presents excerpts from The Doctrines and Discipline of the Methodist Episcopal Church in America, Revised and Approved at the General Conference Held at Baltimore, in the State of Maryland, in November, 1792: In which Thomas Coke, and Francis Asbury, Presided (1792). Asbury faced many challenges at the time of the Methodist General Conference at Baltimore in November 1792. In October 1783 he was appointed as general assistant, the highest rank for an American preacher. Meanwhile, Thomas Coke was placed as a superintendent over America. The Doctrines and Disciplines of the Methodist Episcopal Church in America represents a milestone for American Methodism, which struggled to survive in the 1770s but experienced a resurgence of growth in the 1780s.
