Statement Nine:
A Local Church as described in the New Testament is made up of baptized believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, and, has God-called and qualified Undershepherds to oversee, lead, direct, feed, supervise, and shepherd the believers for Christ’s sake.  It also has Biblically qualified Deacons to help the Undershepherds in the work God has called them to do.  The Local Church is ordained of God, founded by the Lord Jesus Christ Who alone is its head, and can never be in the will of God being a creation of the State or a Government body.  The Local Church must win souls, baptize believers, teach God’s Truth, fellowship with other like Local Churches, and observe the Lord’s Memorial Supper.

(Isaiah 9:6; Romans 13; Daniel 2:21; 4:31-37; Matthew 28:18)
