Church Manual, Seventh-day Adventist / G C of SDA's / (HB/1986-1986/B/USED)



*Condition Note: Minor owner marks and minor overall wear.*


In these inspired words, in the 1877 General Conference action, and in the need for well-defined rules that are requisite to good order, is found not only the justification for this Church Manual but also its rightful claim upon us all, both ministry and laity.
