2 INTRODUCTION For a number of years, God has been leading men to seek foi' a full apostolic e;o,pel standard o[ experience and doctrine. Some 14 years ago, in answer to prayer, tlle Lord began to pour Ollt ]Jis Spirit in Kansas, then in Texaq; and some eight years al!;o it r eached Los Angeles, Cal., and from,hence it ~oo n became scatter~d over the cil'iliz d world. It has been so age;rcssiv that almost every city and community in civilization ha hard of the Latter Ltain outpouring o[ the 1Joly Ghost, w i th many signs follow ing, and not only has civilization been affected to more or less degree, but hundreds 0[ missionaries have eonqecrated them<;ell'es and gone forth uutil almost ever y country on the globe has heard the message and also the prophecy which bas been predominant in all this great outpouring. which is " J esus is coming.-<oon" to this old world in the same l1ianner as he left it to set up His mil- 1 nial Idngdom and to reign over the earth in righteousness and peace for a thousand years. As is true in ;11] grea( r('ligious awakenings, as el'idf'nced by past history,,iii kinds of chaotic conditions have bcen manifeste.d and as th is great movement 01 Goel has no man nor set of m n :::t the head of it but Goel to guide and mold it into cleall cut Scriptural paths by the 110ly Spirit, individualism has b('('n (he hu!11an order of the day, every man bing a law unto hilllsc'lf, and consl'c']u,'ntiy that ScriptUral co-opcralion and fellowship which go far (0 guarnntc'c' the prc'sence and power of God hay not been rcalized in the past in its ful l est measure, but ad we appr opriate the dil'inc order we shall ('xpericncc the c1i\'ine pi' sellee and po\\'el' in this r sp ct. The l'c'ntecostal saints in the I'niled States and Canada cspecially bave ~C'en this great nced of co-operation, fellowshi p and unity, according to tbe Scriptures, and have felt such a great need of the same in the Home al1(1 For('ign ~I i 'sion work that in different parts of the country brethren haye undertaken, we believl' in the name of.jesus, to accomplish this end, but seemillgly God has a more Scriptural basis and method and a broader Ii Id and a greater work than lias been accomplished. Several months ago, men',; he'31 ts were cal ling on God for help to adjust th se mallei's, and op n the way by which the Ministerial, :'IIissionary, Publish In l!; and School Illterests might be ad\'anced to the glory of God.

On motion, Tuesday, SOy. 24th, was set apart by the Council as Missionary Day. SA'J'UHlIAl', :XOY. 2lst. Ucso)nfioll lc WOl'k of thc l'l csbytci'y. On motion, the following resolution, pi' sen ted by the Conference ommittee to the Counci l, was adopted: 11 solved, first, That the Executive Presbytery i specially charg d with the duty of administering the obligations of the General Coun il to the young converts, young preachers, and young assemblies in unity with us, and we express the prayerful hope that the ordained ministers eyerywhere will co-operate with, and render all the assistance in their power to, the Presbyters in the discharge of these arduous labor Second. That among other things enjoined by the \\'ord of God upon such offi cers as ou r Executive Presbyters, they be expected to travel over tbe field, at home and abroad, as the Lord may lead, Witll a view to acquainting themselves and the General Council witll conditions everywhere, Third. That, after consullalion with tbe pastors and ofliccrs of the local assemblies, the Presbyters recommend to the Gencral Council which of the local asscmblie. in unity with us arc Scripturally set in order, and also which of said assemblics are not yet so qualificd, in order that the Gencral ('ouncil, through the Presbytery, may assist in the development of the latter in the will of GOd. Fourtb. We recognize the right of any assembly of God, scripturally set in order, to conduct all or its congregational affairs without interference [rom any outsidc source, and we express the prayerful hope that a ll such bodies will continue in unity with the General Council, send messengers to its sessions and co-operate in a ll of its work. Fifth. That we recommend to those assemblies which are not yet thus scripturally qualified, that they seek the advice and service of the Presbytery and of such brethren as may be ablc to help them in "setling in order the things that are wanting." Tit. 1: 5. Sixth. That we further recommend that all assemblies which have diffi cu lli s of any l<ind wbich seriously threaten to cause division in their midst, to scel( tbe belp of the Presbytery for advice before the division occurs. Seventh. Resolved further, That the Executive Presbytel"s be expected, with such advice from thc older ministers throughout the world and of the various district councils as they may be able to obtain, to prepare a list of those ministers in unity with us who by experience and qualifications may justify the General CounCil in recognizing their ordinaton as Elders, and likewise prepare a list of those ministers and aspirants to tbe ministry wbose experience and qualifications do not warrant their ordination as elders.

12 We rc('ognizp that all ministers of the first division are entitled to perfect fn'c'dom in the ministry of the Gospel. with no other tics binding th'm than thmlc of lovc, unity and co-operation with the General ilody. but rccommend to the other ('lass that they submit themsel\'es to the brotherly oversight or the District and General Councils, the Executive Presbytery and such brethren as may be able to assist them. 1 Pet. 5:5. Eighth. That, wherein any brother be used of Cod to establish an asscmbly in a n w field he be recognized as the logical overseer or pastor o f that flock and that he be encouraged to remain with the same assembly and feed it and care for it until the Lord shall raise up a pastor to take this r esponsibility and thus relieve him that he may press on to new fields; and if he shall find it needful to go before this is accomplished let him confer with the nearest Presbyter before leaving. Thus we may avoid the disaster that has come to many o[ the young assemblies that have been I ft without pastoral car e. Ninth. And. Wh(,I'C3S, the r ecognition by the General ouncil of the foregoing obligations resting upon it as the representative of the General Assembly o[ the First Born among us, and the e1ischarge of these worlel-wide duties by our Executive Presbytery will ('all for the use and expenditure of large sums of money. Therefore, be it further R solved, Th:\t we recomm nd to all saints ever ywher e having treasures of money or property which th y wish to offer to Goel, in obedience to the command of the Lord Jes us (Math. 6:19), prayerfully consider' the offering of such t r easur s to the Execulive Presbytery, in order that ther e may be no failure of the Chur ch of God to accomplish His full will for lack of means. We furl her r ecommend to the saints el'crywhere that they diligently adopt the Xew T estament system and plan of " laying by in store on the first day of the w ek as the L ord has pros per ed you" (1 Cor. 16 : 1-2) and warn them against slothfu lness and irregularity in these maller. In conclu Sion, we commend the Presbyt ers and their h elper s as they may travel in the discharge of their duties to the saints throughout the world and r ecolllmend that offerings be tal«'n in each place where they may visit for the work of the Presbytery. ) 0:\ 11,\ Y, ::\()Y. 2:ll'd. A ('o open" h e }; r:lilgelisltl. Brother' L. C.

W e arc grateful to Him for the r suits attc'mling this forwar'd movement and we colllmit ourselves and the movement to J lim for the gr eatest evangelism that the world 11as ever seen. W e pl edge our hearty co-operation, prayers and help to this end." On motion, the following resolution was unanimously adopted, that wher as the Slone Church and its p ople with other assemblies and saints in Chicago have extended to the Ceneral CounCil such hearty hospitality, therefore bc' it r solved, That t he General ('ouncil extend a Sincer e yot of thanl,s to th saints of the Stone Church and those others who have by their hospitality h elped in the work of the ('ouncil. On motion, a t r act ntitled, "Advice to Young Converts," was, by the Council, order ed to be published. On motion, the minutes as edited and corrected by the Presbyter y, were adopted and approved. On molion, the Council adjourned until the call of the next Ceneral Council by the Presbytery.
