Church By-Laws
  • These comprehensive 21 articles are Biblically correct
  • Don't try to reinvent the wheel, we've done all the work for you
  • New Testament government requires New Testament designed by-laws

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 Church By-Laws are:

Statement of FaithIncluding 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 (Pastor) 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.
