CONSTITUTION

Preamble

Recognizing that the work of God should be carried on in an orderly manner, according to the Word of God and for His glory, WE, the members of the Lincoln Community Church of Lincoln, Kansas do hereby establish and adopt this Constitution for the purpose of regulating our church life.

Article I - Name

This body shall be known as the Lincoln Community Church of Lincoln, Kansas.

Article II - Purpose

1) To provide a place to worship and experience Christian fellowship for all whodesire to make this their church home.

2) To offer spiritual nurture, an opportunity for service, and development of Christian character.

3) To promote a program for the spreading of the gospel at home and abroad.

 

Article III - Confession of Faith


We Believe:

 

1) That there is one (1) God, eternally existent in 3 persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

 

2) In the deity and virgin birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, His sinless life, His vicarious and atoning death for the sins of all men, His bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His person, visible, glorious, and imminent return in power and glory.

 

3) In the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, and His indwelling presence in every believer whereby the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

 

4) That the Bible in its original writings, including both the Old and New Testaments, is theinspired and only inerrant, infallible, and authoritative Word of God and is our only rule of faith and practice.

 

5) That every human being is by nature spiritually dead, separated from God, and can be restored to spiritual life and assurance of salvation only by repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ as personal Savior by forsaking the life of sin and serving the trueand living God. (I Thess. 1:9-10; John 14:6)

 

6) In the two sacraments: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

 

7) In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost – those that are saved unto the resurrection of life and those that are lost unto the resurrection of judgment and damnation.

 

8) That the church is the body and bride of Christ whose duty and privilege it is to be His witness before the world in this age.

 

9) That the true Church is composed of all such persons who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head. Only those who are thus members of the true and invisible Church are eligible for membership in the local church.

 

Article IV- Mission Statement


The purpose of the Lincoln Community Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ (Matt 28:19) who individually and corporately love and glorify God (Matt. 22:36-37; I Cor. 10:31) through worship, spiritual growth, caring for people and by communicating the gospel to others.

 

Our short version of the above mission statement is: “To know Christ and make Him known”
