The Seventh-day Adventist Church Manual – updated after the 2015 General Conference Session and with a 2016 updated South Pacific Division suplament.
This resource is a must for every:
- Church Library
- Church secretary
- Lay persons involved in church leadership
The Church Manual describes the operations and functions of local churches and their relationship to denominational structures in which they hold membership. The Church Manual defines the relationship that exists between the local congregation and the conference or other entities of the Seventh-day Adventist church.
It also expresses the church’s understanding of Christian life and church governance and discipline based on biblical principles and the authority of the duly assembled General Conference Sessions. The principles, based on Holy Scriptures and underscored by the Spirit of Prophecy, are to be followed in all matters pertaining to the administration and operation of local churches.
The content of each chapter is of worldwide value and is applicable to every church organization, congregation, and member.
Every church library, pastor, secretary, and lay leader should own a copy of this revised 19th edition.
