Governance

Our governance structure is based on the biblical principle that the local church is an autonomous, self-governing body of baptized believers and is accountable to God for its decisions and actions. The ultimate authority for governance is vested in the membership in a congregational form of church governance. The Scriptures provide latitude in how a church makes leadership and administrative decisions.
