While it is true, that most churches have a doctrinal statement, a document that condenses and systematizes the church’s tenets of faith. A doctrinal statement is valuable in ensuring conformity to the Word of God and preventing our church from being “tossed to and fro, and carried about by every wind of doctrine” (Ephesians 4:14). In addition to our articles of faith, we have a set of by-laws, sometimes called rules of order or a constitution. There are several practical reasons to have bylaws.
First, to promote efficiency, a church must have some type of organization. By-laws specify a church’s governing structure; define the roles of pastor, elder, deacon, and other leaders; and stipulate the requirements for membership. In other words, bylaws allow “all things [to] be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:40).
Second, to provide direction, to articulate our mission and methodology. The by-laws of our church are useful in setting parameters for fundraising, outreach, ordination, expenditures, and missionary support.
Third, to preserve unity and maintain its testimony, the constitution helps us agree on issues of Christian living and separation. A “gray area” which the Bible does not specifically address may be covered in by-laws,
Fourth, to protect our church from liability, therefore our Bylaws have written policies on church discipline, screening youth workers, By-laws can be a way of averting calamity in a crisis situation.

1. We believe the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

2. We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection
Our Core Value
The Word of God tells us to “prove all things; hold fast that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21). This means to examine things for soundness, in order to know whether to receive or reject them. This is what led to the great creeds and articles of faith in the past, and it is what will help us know what we believe and why we believe it today.
