Corporators, Change

From the book The Clergyman’s Hand-book of Law, about Corporators, Change (1): In isolated cases here and there it has been held that a majority of the corporators of a religious society has the right to change the form of church government, as from the Congregational Church to an organization in connection with the Presbyterian Church.123 But it is a general rule that a majority of the congregation can act only consistently with the particular and general laws of the church organization, but not in violation of them.124
