Article 49 — Archives

The assemblies shall ensure that proper care is taken of the archives.

It is often very difficult to write the history of a local church or of the churches in general. And sometimes it is almost impossible to retrace a certain document.
Therefore our churches follow the action of the Dutch sister-churches, which have inserted a special article regarding the archives. It is to be hoped that both local churches and major assemblies carefully observe the Church Order in this respect!
