The Meeting at Battle Creek

January 1859

James White did call for Andrews to come to Battle Creek for such a study, which was reported by J. N. Loughborough. Several workers, including J. N. Andrews, met for two days in Battle Creek to study a Bible-based system of finance for the emerging church. The plan that was developed was presented to the Battle Creek church in a business meeting the following Sunday night, January 16, 1859 . The aim was to induce all to sustain the cause of present truth and at the same time relieve some who had given beyond their real ability.
