The Call for a General Conference

07 April 1863 - 23 May 1863

There was one more step to be taken in church organization, and that was the binding of the state conferences together in the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

This was done in May, 1863, in Battle Creek. This step in organization brought the church into a unified denominational structure in time to meet the emergencies of the military draft, and prepared to make advance steps as the health message came, through vision, two weeks after the session.
