GUIDELINES FOR CHURCH AFFLIATION

This motion comes from the Credentials Committee:

 

Step 1:  Apply for Membership (Application on Associational Website:  www.nwibaptist.org)

 

Step 2:  Agree with the NWIBA constitution.

              

A. See Article III- Doctrine: We rely on the Bible as God’s definitive Word and acknowledge the Baptist Faith and Message as a reliable statement of faith on doctrinal issues for churches associated with the NWIBA.

              

B. Article IV – Authority, Section III (the state).  It is not our practice to have women pastors, deacons or elders actively serving in the church.

 

Step 3:  Participate in the Northwest Indiana Baptist Association

              

               A.  Attend Executive Board Meetings and Annual Meetings and NWIBA.

 

               B.  Give a financial percentage (%) or regular monthly giving to the NWIBA.

 

C.  Complete Annual Church Profile each year because this proves that you are a participating associational church and this protects your 501 C (3) Non for Profit status as a member of our association, state convention, & national convention. This ACP is completed the end of August of each year.

 

Step 4: Upon receiving the application form, we will turn it over to our Credentials Committee for review and upon acceptance, will be voted on at the Annual Meeting (April - Spring Meeting) or the Semi-Annual Meeting (September - Fall Meeting).
