Our Guidelines for New Churches
The following documents outline the various stages of new church growth and the requirements to move into each stage. We use the term “new church” to refer to any congregation engaged in this process at any stage. These guidelines are prayerfully and thoughtfully applied to each church in conversation with its leaders and members, with attention to the unique circumstances of each group.
