Church Government and the Glory of Christ

"Presbyterian doctrine and presbyterian polity go hand-in-hand. The former depends more on the latter for its proper demonstration than many realize…The study of Church government, therefore, involves the study of how to exalt the Name of Christ…For the study of Church government is nothing less than the study of the ordinary ways and means by which Jesus Christ is now at work in this world glorifying Himself."

Jay Adams, Preface to Lawrence R. Eyres' 'The Elders of the Church'.
