Church Administration

We believe that the churches of God and the state should be kept completely separate: that civil officers should be prayed for, conscientiously honored, and obeyed; that allegiance should be had in seeking the will of God in all church matters; the missionary endeavors should ever be executed from within the local church to without; that pastors and deacons, the only divinely appointed church officers, should be duly appointed, ordained, and brought to understand the sacred duties developing upon them; that the Lord’s Day, the first day of the week, should be honored by both saint and sinner; that the Bible teaching should be constantly and consistently fostered by local church bodies; that members should be deliberately and prayerfully voted into the fellowship of the local body; that unruly church members should be prayerfully and scripturally disciplined by the local church; and that church letters should be granted to sister churches of the same faith and practice.
