These bylaws reflect the commitment of our church throughout our 107 year history to maintain two vital distinctives. The first is congregational rule. As a Baptist church we understand the design of Christ's church and the importance of the body to take responsibility and to be accountable to line ourselves up under Christ. “God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way”(Eph.1:22-23). The second distinctive is trust in the spiritual leaders God places in the church to seek Christ and to shepherd His church. “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood” (Acts 20:28). “To the elders among you ... Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them...”(I Pet.5:1-2).
