Fellowship Membership/Baptism Issue PDF Print E-mail

Several years ago, some of our Fellowship churches and pastors posed a question to our Fellowship leaders:  Is there allowance for local churches to induct believers into their church membership who have experienced believer's baptism by a mode other than immersion?

 

The immediate answer to this question is "no."  Our Affirmation of Faith, unchanged since the Fellowship's founding in 1953, clearly defines a church as a "company of immersed believers."  The question then became: Would the Fellowship consider a change to our current position?

 

This request was deemed to be a question for the National Council to deliberate on since the guardianship of our Affirmation of Faith, and any potential changes to it, is the responsibility of the National Council.

 

The National Council will be voting on this question in 2017.  The following links will lead you to further information regarding this issue.
