Reports of Study Committees

The Annual Conference often establishes study committees when it wishes to carefully examine an issue. These study committees do extensive and intensive examination of biblical evidence on the assigned topic and report back to the Annual Conference. These reports are normally recorded and provide a record to explain why a certain position or practice was chosen. Because of the care of the committees and the review of Annual Conference, these reports are valuable even today.
