@ Millie210 to answer your question:What did the Bible say before they added "Governing Body"?
Acts 15:22 Then it seemed good to the apostles and the elders, with the whole church, to choose men from among them and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They sent Judas called Barsabbas, and Silas, leading men among the brothers (Gideon Bible in the glove box of new cars now. Not just in hotels )
Thank you IWant2Leave and Mr. Finkelstein!
