FEBRUARY, 2016 REVISION
This Constitution was first published in Grand Rapids, MI, in 1980, then amended in 1984. Our church adopted that Constitution in 1994 when we constituted as a church.
The text herein is not
under copyright, since we are indebted to other churches, both past and present, for many of the
biblical insights embodied in this document. Particular gratitude is expressed to the Grace
Immanuel Reformed Baptist Church of Grand Rapids, MI for sharing with us the fruit of their
studies on church order.
