In addition to the Trinity Bible Church Affirmation of Faith Statement (doctrinal statement), which attempts to concisely systematize the core tenets of our faith, we also maintain a set of bylaws, otherwise referred to as ‘rules of order’ or a ‘church constitution’.
The Bylaws of Trinity Bible Church are intended to promote efficiency in the identification and communication of Trinity Bible Church as an organization. They specify our church’s governing structure, defining organizational offices, roles, and procedural protocol. They also identify stipulations for membership. The bylaws also help to legally protect the church as an organization. In other words, the Bylaws of Trinity Bible Church help “all things [to] be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:40).
