The development of the church can be traced through the Church's records, which include legal instruments, minutes, reference files, reports, correspondence, publications, recordings, films, video and audio tapes, and photographs.

Only a fraction of the minutes, reference files, correspondence, reports, publications, recordings, photographs, and other audiovisual materials, held in the Archives and Library, have been digitized and made available to everyone through our online archives. Our catalog provides a convenient point of access, but it also is intended to provide a broad overview of what can be found in our vault and on our shelves, allowing researchers to get an idea of what we have beyond what is on the online archives, especially as they prepare for a visit to the Archives and Library.
