From the life of John Portineus Greene:   At an early day he became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and for several years held an exhorter’s license, but was not satisfied with their travels and improvements in spiritual things. Hoping that more light and perfection would be manifested, he joined the Methodist Reformed Church, when that church was organized, and traveled about three years preaching the gospel according to the light he had received, but not realizing his hopes of finding that for  which his soul panted, he united with some twenty to twenty-five others and formed the Methodist Protestant Church in 1828, and he continued a traveling preacher in that connection until he received the true gospel of Jesus Christ and the New Covenant of the last days. He was baptized in April, 1832, by Elder Eleazer Miller, in Mendon, Monroe co., New York, and after he was confirmed the promise of the Father was verified, he spake in tongues and prophesied. Shortly thereafter he was ordained an Elder under the hands of Elder Miller and commenced preaching the gospel in a more perfect way; where ever he went the fire was kindled, many embracing the gospel and receiving the ordinance of baptism under his administration.
