ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING – 11am Sunday 26 October
UPDATE: BAPTISM & MEMBERSHIP PROPOSAL
Following the church forum held last Sunday (12/10/14), the elders have modified the original proposal regarding baptism and membership in response to some of the feedback received.
For more information, see the complete proposal printed on the back page of the AGM reports booklet.
The revised proposed modification would add an exception in the “The Congregation” section of the guidelines, immediately following the paragraph beginning “The church membership shall consist of those…” The addition would read:
Exception: If a person meets all other membership criteria but has been baptised according to a different, but still biblically based, Christian practice, and sincerely believes that it would be contrary to Scripture to be baptised again by immersion, they may be accepted as members at the discretion of the elders.
This is the proposal that will be voted on at the upcoming AGM.
