Pastor Ron Carpenter explains "The democratic system has bred distrust of people. Democracy has worked for America with some measure of success, but the church was never meant to be a people-controlled movement."

Joseph Thompson, Senior Pastor of 'Church at the Well' explains: "In some churches, two thirds of the congregation can kick the pastor out. I don't think it gives the pastor the liberty to hear the voice of God."

Whether starting a church or already leading one, the first step to assuring the long term success of the ministry is to have a sound, biblically based set of By-Laws.

Included in the 21 articles of your New Testament  Apostolic By-Laws are:

Statement of Faith: Including new additions and modifications to the definition of Biblical marriage and sexually perverted activities, providing additional, potential protections from government interference and possible law suits. 

Non-voting Membership: Confirms that all members are cognizant of the Statement of Faith and provides additional, potential protections from government interference and possible law suits. 

The Governing Body: Senior Overseer is responsible for all final decisions

Meeting of the Local Presbytery: determined by Senior Overseer only. 

Ecclesiastical Government:  All appointments are approved by Senior Overseer. 

Non-Governmental Positions of Ministering Elders, Deacons and Deaconess: Specific responsibilities and parameters of each group

Outside Presbytery: Selected by the Senior Overseer from outside the local Church. 

International Presbytery: Provision for the Local Presbytery to create an International Board of Presbyters

Officers: Description, responsibilities and powers of various officers

Licensing and Ordination of Ministers: Gives power to the Senior Overseer to license and ordain. 


Our goal is to provide sound Biblically based by-laws. We cannot provide legal advice. If you have any legal questions, you should consult your attorney just as we have done.
