Article 19.

We believe that the temporal affairs of the general church are to be administered by the general bishopric under the supervision and direction of the general conferences of the Church. The temporal affairs of the local churches shall be administered by local bishops under the supervision and direction of the local congregations.

The bishops are in charge of the money of the church. There are seven bishops in the Church. The bishops and apostles work together to do the work of the Church. The bishops also help the local churches in their finances and affairs. For further study read 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, and Acts 6:1-6.
