Note 2.



Note one:- "The church is God's appointed agency for the salvation of men. It was organized for service, and its mission is to carry the gospel to the world. From the beginning it has been God's plan that through His church shall be reflected to the world His fullness and His sufficiency. The members of the church, those whom He had called out of darkness into His marvelous light, are to show forth His glory. The church is the repository of the riches of the grace of Christ; and through the church will eventually be made manifest, even to 'The principalities and powers in heavenly places', the final and full display of the love of God." - "The Acts of the Apostles." page 9.


Note two:-. "Not only have we seen that the Lord's providence has opened the way for the spread of the truth, and His signal blessing has attended the efforts made to move in the ways of His providence, but in the rise and progress of the third angel's message He has communicated with His people through the gift of Prophecy. This has not been in the form of a new revelation to take the place of the Bible, nor in a manner to pervert the scripture teachings, but to show where in this age, there is danger of departing from the simplicity of the gospel of Christ, where the people are in danger of falling under the tendency of the age, being satisfied with a form of godliness without the power." "The Great Second Advent Movement." page 466.
