Principles of Government

Section 1. The Head of the Church

 

The Head of the Church is the Lord Jesus Christ. He rules in the affairs of His Church by His Word and by the Holy Spirit. It is thus the duty of those who oversee the congregation to seek His mind in all things.

 

Section 2. The Rule of Faith and Practice

 

Scripture is the final authority in matters of faith and practice. This church recognizes that it cannot bind the consciences of individuals in areas in which the Scripture does not speak, but that each believer is to be led by the Lord to whom alone he is ultimately responsible. For the preservation of the peace and unity of the Church, officers and teachers shall agree to support the Statement of Faith which we believe to be an accurate summary of what the Scriptures teach. Members of the congregation shall refrain from imposing doctrines that are not in accord with the Statement of Faith, which would tend to disturb the peace and unity of the Church.

 

Section 3. Form of Government

 

This Church is and shall remain independent and self-governing, though it shall be free to fellowship with other churches of like doctrinal persuasion, and to cooperate in joint efforts with other believers who demonstrate the oneness of the Body of Christ.

 

This church shall be governed by a duly elected Board of Elders. The Board of Elders may delegate responsibilities to other boards, committees, staff personnel, or church workers as required for the efficient functioning of the Church. A Board of Deacons elected by the church membership will serve to assist the Elders in caring for the physical and material needs of the church. (1 Peter 5:1-5 ; Acts 6:1-3 )

 

Each officer of the church shall accept and support the Bylaws and Statement of Faith of the church and shall be willing to discharge all duties of the office. This requirement applies specifically to each Elder and Deacon, to the Pastor and Assistant Pastor, and to members of the Missions Committee, members of the School Board and officers of the Women of Faith.  It applies also to any individual to whom the Elders assign a similar level of authority.

 

Section 4. Membership

 

Membership is for those committed to the ministry of this church and who are willing to demonstrate that commitment through regular attendance, the exercise of their spiritual gifts, prayer, and financial support of the ministry.

 

Anyone desiring membership in this local church shall be interviewed by the Elders. All prospective members must profess a personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior. Each must live consistently with that profession, must express his intention to abide by the By-Laws of this church, and must believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God; that His death on the cross was a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins apart from which all men would be eternally condemned; that He bodily arose from the dead and that salvation is a gift of God by grace and is received by means of personal faith in Christ.

 

Christians of any age may become members of FEBC, as long as they meet the requirements of this section.  However, only those members who are eighteen years of age and older may vote in church business meetings, and will be counted as members for the purpose of establishing a quorum.

 

Once each year prior to the annual business meeting, the Elders will review the membership roll and remove the names of inactive members. The elders will determine when a member has become inactive based on Paragraph 1 of this section.  Those being considered for removal, who are in the geographic area normally served by the church, will be contacted and given an opportunity to express their commitment to the church and desire to remain on the rolls.

 

Section 5.  Accountability

 

Individuals shall receive prior approval of the Elders on any matter affecting the entire church.

 

Welcome to the new website!

We want to welcome you to the newly redesigned website for Faith Evangelical Bible Church! This redesign process has taken a very long time, but now that it is finished, we are thrilled about the changes.

 

The one thing that has changed the most, as you can tell, is the design. Much of the menu systems and functionality have remained the same, though the menu system has also been revamped to help get you where you want to go even faster, with fewer clicks.

 

Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the new layout. We think you will like the fact that you can get just about anywhere with just a few clicks. We are also available to help answer any questions about the new site and help your find your way around.

 

As always, we hope you enjoy your stay!

~in Christ
