On September 2, 1965, Christ, the King of His Church, translated His faithful warrior-servant, Rev. H. Hoeksema, from the Church Militant to the Church Triumphant. Even to outsiders Rev.

Volume 41 Completed This issue of our Standard Bearer completes another volume; and although this is not a “special” anniversary, we nevertheless wish to take note of this fact with thanksgiving to our God, Who has brought us hitherto. In connection with the completion of this volume, your attention is called to the following:
There are times in life when there is danger in too much speed. There are also times when there is certainly danger in delay. When one’s house is afire, it is surely dangerous to delay calling the fire department, for example. The same is true ecclesiastically speaking. When one’s ecclesiastical house is in danger of destruction, it is certainly dangerous to delay taking the proper measures to preserve it.
