1983 BC Campmeeting – Philadelphian Church

These are the complete studies from the Canadian Camp Meeting of 1983, as presented by Fred Wright in Surrey, BC, Canada, in 1983 (September 09 to September 17).

The theme is on the Philadephian Church, as recorded in Revelation 3:7-13. The main topic is Holiness, which is defined as Faith and Obedience. This is drawn from the revelation of Christ to the church of Philadelphia as “He that is holy.”
