The Constitution for The United Methodist Church with Enabling Legislation and Other Historic Documents, 1967.
In 1966 the General Conferences of The Methodist Church and The EUB Church adopted a Plan of Union. Implementation of the plan required the affirmation of two thirds of the constituent Annual Conferences. A sufficient number of conferences voted their approval in 1967, thereby authorizing a Uniting Conference to occur in Dallas in the spring of 1968. This booklet contains several essential documents establishing The United Methodist Church: its constitution, doctrinal statements, general rules, social principles, and enabling legislation.
