ABOUT GOD

page3image2952128 page3image2952352

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

page3image2915392 page3image2922224 page3image2922560 page3image2924016 page3image2923456 page3image2924128

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

page3image2925248 page3image2925360 page3image2925472 page3image2925584 page3image2925696 page3image2925808

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance for doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.

ABOUT THE BIBLE

page3image2926928 page3image2927040

The Bible is God's Word to us. Human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, wrote it as God’sinstruction book for us. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without error.

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him incharacter. People are the supreme object of God’s creation.Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.

page4image2918640 page4image896416 page4image2931072 page4image2936448 page4image2936560 page4image2936672

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; John 1:12; Titus 3:5

page4image2936896 page4image2937008 page4image2937120 page4image2937232 page4image2931968 page4image2932080

Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have beengenuinely saved, you cannot simply “lose it.” Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.

page4image2905984 page4image2904192 page4image909632 page4image2903744 page4image2915840 page4image2914272

Eternal life with Jesus Christ begins the moment one receives Christ into his or her heart by faith. People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.

V. OFFICERS AND STAFF

A. Senior Pastor (President):

1. Generally. The Senior Pastor is the spiritual leader of the Church. As a temporal example of Jesus Christ, the Senior Pastor is to be a man who is above reproach in his private and public manner of living according to Scriptural principles, one who is called by God and the Church to lead its Members/Partners just as a husband is called to love and sacrificially provide for his wife (Ephesians 5:22-23). He serves in a unique position of responsibility, charged to equip Partners through the regular ministry of preaching, teaching, praying, and encouraging; he is consistent in stressing both the meaning and application of divine truths and principles contained in the Word of God, the Holy Bible. The Senior Pastor serves as the under- shepherd of the Church, following the example of Jesus who called Himself“the good shepherd who lays down his life for his sheep” (John 10:14). Heleads in a manner that is biblical and Christ-like, in stark contrast to the mannerof worldly leaders who “lord it over” their followers (Matthew 20:25; Luke22:25; 2 Corinthians 1:24; 1 Peter 5:3). The Senior Pastor is humble, prayerful, caring, approachable, and in touch with the Partners of his flock to whom he is accountable under Christ, the Head of this Church. The Senior Pastor guides the Church with vision, diligence, and God-given gifts of teaching and leading. He gives clear expression of the best ways forward to meet the needs, goals, and challenges of the Church with integrity, transparency, and love in aheartfelt commitment to follow God’s direction. The Senior Pastor is to join

Constitution & Bylaws of His House Ministries, Inc. Page 9 of 23

page9image3689568page9image3689776page9image3689984page9image3690192

with the Elders to guide the church with vision, diligence, and God-given gifts of teaching and leading by the Holy Spirit.

  1. Qualifications:TheSeniorPastormustfulfillthescripturalrequirementslisted in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. He must fully agree with the “Statement of Faith” of this church and must be above reproach in his personal life andbusiness affairs. It is expected that in the process of being called to the Church as Senior Pastor, he will have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Church prior to his calling and acceptance into the position that he possesses the anointing of the Holy Spirit to fulfill the duties of the Senior Pastor.

  2. Selection.FollowingarecommendationfromthePastorSearchCommittee and the Leadership Team, the calling of a Senior Pastor shall require an affirmative vote of eighty-five percent (85%) of the Active Partners present and voting at a duly-called meeting. The vote shall be by written ballot identifying the Active Member who is voting.

  3. Termination. If the Pastor is no longer qualified to serve as Pastor or is not adequately meeting his responsibilities, the Leadership Team may initiate dismissal proceedings by a two-thirds (2/3) majority vote of the Leadership Team at a duly-called meeting. The Senior Pastor may be present at this meeting, including the taking of the vote, and shall be afforded an opportunity to speak; provided, however, the Senior Pastor shall not be entitled to vote on this issue. If the Leadership Team votes to terminate the Senior Pastor, it shall then present a recommendation to the Active Partners at a duly-called meeting for which at least two (2) weeks’ notice has been given. A two-thirds (2/3) majority vote of those Partners present and voting in favor of dismissal shall be sufficient to terminate the employment of the pastor. The vote will be by written ballot identifying the Active Member who is voting.

  1. Ministry Staff: The selection of the ministry staff other than the Senior Pastor shall betreated as a “Major Matter,” as described above.

  2. Officers. The officers of this corporation will be a president (who shall be the Senior Pastor), secretary, treasurer and such other officers as the Leadership Team, in consultation with the Active Partnership, may select. A person other than the President may hold more than one of these offices. Officers other than the President need not be members of the Leadership Team. All officers shall be Active Partners of His House and must be an example to the Active Partners and the community and live in a way that becomes an ambassador for Christ in both speech and conduct.

VI. ELDERS

  1. Generally. Elders are overseers of the flock. They are themselves members of the flock. Therefore, each individual Elder is under the oversight of his fellow Elders and is subject to the same discipline as are all the other members of the church. The Bible clearly contemplates that elders operate with a certain degree of authority within the local church.This is demonstrated by Paul’s statement that, “elders who rule well [should] be consideredworthy of double honor[.]”

  2. Qualifications of Elders. The spiritual health and vitality of a church is always a reflection of the health of its leaders. For this reason, it is important that churches appoint and empower leaders who are both qualified and capable. Elders should possess the following qualifications:

    1. “The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, hedesires a noble task. Therefore, an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to managehis own household, how will he care for God’s church? He must not be arecent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.” (1 Timothy 3:1- 7 ESV);

    2. Elders must seek to discharge their duties as set forth in the Scriptures (particularly in such passages as Acts 20:17, 28; 1 Peter 5:1-4; and Hebrews 13: 17); and

    3. An Elder shall have reached his thirtieth (30th) birthday and shall demonstrate appropriate spiritual maturity.

  3. Conduct of Elders. Elders should conduct themselves in accordance with the following Scriptures:

1. “Lettheelderswhorulewellbeconsideredworthyofdoublehonor,especially those who labor in preaching and teaching. For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox when it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer deserves his wages.” Do not admit a charge against an elder except on the evidence of two or three witnesses. As for those who persist in sin, rebuke them in the presenceof all, so that the rest may stand in fear.” (1 Timothy 5:17-20 ESV)

  1. “So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”” (1 Peter 5:1-5 ESV)

  2. ThisiswhyIleftyouinCrete,sothatyoumightputwhatremainedinto order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed youif anyone is above reproach, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not opento the charge of debauchery or insubordination. For an overseer, as God’ssteward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.(Titus 1:5-9 ESV)

  3. We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.(1 Thessalonians 5:12, 13 ESV)

(Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Psalm 34: 1-4, 8, 42:1-2; Mark 12:30-31; Luke 10:25-37; Leviticus 19:18; John 13:34-35; Romans 12:9-21; 1 Peter 4:8; 1 John 3:11-16; Proverbs 19:17; Isaiah 58:6-11; Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12; Ephesians 2:10; 4:11-12; 1 Peter 4:10-11).

4. UponthecompletionofdisciplinaryactionofthisChurch(inaccordancewith the procedures set out in this Constitution & Bylaws).

DISCIPLINE OF PARTNERS

A. All disciplinary actions are considered to be ecclesiastical matters under these Bylaws in keeping with spiritual mandates of righteous living and conduct according to the Christian Bible (comprised of the sixty-six canonical books of the Bible).

B. Due process will be provided to any Partner to be heard by the Leadership Team either orally or in writing at the time and place set by the Leadership Team prior to any disciplinary action.

C. If the actions of a Partner damage the church’s witness and/or welfare, the Senior Pastor, Elders, and/or the Leadership Team will take every reasonable measure to resolve the problem redemptively in accordance with Matthew 18:12-17 and I Corinthians 5.

D. If, at any point during the church discipline process explained by Matthew 18:12-17, the errant Partner described above withdraws his or her membership, the discipline process shall then cease and no information concerning the process will be disclosed after the withdrawal of the errant Partner.

E. If it becomes necessary for the church to take action to exclude a Partner, a vote of three-fourths (3/4) of the membership is required to declare the person to be no longer a Partner of the church. Upon evidence of the excluded person’s repentance and reformation, the Active Partners may restore to membership any person previously excluded, upon request of the excluded person and by a vote of a simple majority (51%) of the membership.

X. COMMITMENT TO UNITY

A. His House Church places a high value on unity within the body of believers that comprise its Active Partners, regular attenders and guests. This commitment is a direct reflection of the clear mandate of scripture to avoid divisions and discord:

1. “Iappealtoyou,brothers,bythenameofourLordJesusChrist,thatallof you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united inthe same mind and the same judgment.” 1 Corinthians 1:10 (ESV)

Constitution & Bylaws of His House Ministries, Inc. Page 18 of 23

XI.

MINISTRY TEAMS.

  1. “Iappealtoyou,brothers,towatchoutforthosewhocausedivisionsand create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoidthem.” Romans 16:17 (ESV)

  2. “There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination tohim: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witnesswho breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.” Proverbs6:16-19 (ESV)

B. His House believes that these passages stand for the following principles:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

UnityisacorevaluewithintheChurchandisavitalaspectofourwitnessto a lost and dying world (see John 13:35);

The Bible admonishes all of us to agree on the core doctrines of the faith (see Romans 16:17-18);

The Bible warns that there must be no divisions among us over mere preferences (see Romans 16:17-18);

The Bible urges us to be united in the same mind by agreeing on the facts (see Romans 16:17-18);

TheBiblefurtherurgesustoarriveatthesamejudgmentbyagreeingonthe conclusion to be drawn from these facts (see Romans 16:17-18);

Leaders are charged with a heavy responsibility to protect the church body from those who sow discord and create division (see Proverbs 6:16-19).

C. In view
to exercise spiritual discernment to recognize and respond to circumstances that threaten unity within the church body. This commitment will be expressed through:

of these clear scriptural principles, it is incumbent upon the leaders of His House

1. An expectation that communications between and amongst the church body be carried out in a spirit of love and seasoned with grace;

2. Prompt and effective intervention by leaders to resolve disagreement consistent with the spirit of Matthew 18; and

3. Implementationofchurchdisciplinewhennecessarytopreserveorrestore unity within the church body.

D. Issues involving actions that threaten the unity of the church body shall be treated as ministry opportunities and, as required, disciplinary matters.

Constitution & Bylaws of His House Ministries, Inc. Page 19 of 23

  1. Permanent Ministry Teams. His House shall have the following Permanent Ministry Teams:

    1. Building and Grounds Team: The Building and Grounds Team shall inspect and maintain all property owned by the church; shall be responsible for the cleaning, maintenance, and upkeep of these properties; and shall review and bring recommendation to the church in matters that pertain to improvements to the building and grounds of church properties.

    2. Business Team: The Business Team is a committee operating under the supervision of the Leadership Team and is responsible for the general stewardship promotion throughout the church year, for developing and recommending to the church an all-inclusive, annual budget, and presenting this budget to the church for its adoption before the first Sunday in December of each year. The Business Team is also responsible for safeguarding all monies; keeping on file insurance policies, deeds, and valuable papers; counting and depositing all church funds in the bank; dispersing funds only as directed by the church, administering the budget throughout the year; and bringing recommendation for amendments as deemed necessary throughout the course of the fiscal calendar.

  2. Ad hoc Ministry Teams. The Leadership Team may form Ad Hoc Ministry Teams as deemed necessary, which shall serve under the guidelines and purposes for which they were formed for the length of time necessary to accomplish the purpose of the Ministry Team.

  3. Ministry Team Selection Process.

    1. Nomination/Qualification. Whenever there is a vacancy for a position on any committee, the Leadership Team shall identify and approve an appropriate candidate to fill the position. Candidates shall be presented for selection by the Active Partners present and voting at a duly-called meeting.

    2. Selection. A candidate to fill a vacancy on any standing committee must receive a two-thirds (2/3) majority vote of the Active Partners present and voting at a duly-called meeting. For all other committees, a candidate(s) must receive a simple majority vote of the Active Partners present and voting at a duly-called meeting.

XII. MARRIAGE, SEXUAL ETHICS AND GENDER

We believe that marriage is the exclusive, covenant relationship between one man and one woman. Though sexual intimacy within the marriage relationship between one man and one woman is approved and even celebrated in scripture, we believe that any sexual intimacy outside of this covenant relationship is sinful and prohibited. Further, we believe that God created human beings in two distinct genders: male and female. We believe any attempts to alter or change one’s genderare prohibited and sinful. Nevertheless, His House recognizes the love of God to all persons and welcomes all seekers of God, encouraging repentance so that no one will perish. (Genesis 2:24;

Genesis 19:5, 13; Genesis 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; 1 Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4).

Constitution & Bylaws of His House Ministries, Inc. Page 21 of 23

  1. FACILITY USE

    His House makes its facilities available to community events as an expression of its religious mission to demonstrate love for and engagement with the community. (Mark 12:31; Matthew 28:16-20). However, His House only makes its facilities available to non-member activities that are consistent with the mission and beliefs of His House as expressed in its bylaws, statement of faith, and other governing documents. Allowing activities or ceremonies contrary to the mission and statement offaith would violate the church’s beliefs and religious practices, would render assistance to beliefsand practices contrary to its own, produce confusion and scandal among its Partners, and send an inconsistent message to the community. (2 Corinthians 6:14; 1 Thessalonians 5:22). Therefore, approval of the Leadership Team or its designee must first be secured for the use of any property, buildings, or equipment for activities other than meetings or events planned by the church. His House maintains a separate Facility Use Policy.

  2. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

    1. Confidentiality of Certain Records: The following records shall be deemed CONFIDENTIAL and shall not be made available to the membership at-large: records of any individual Partner’s tithes and offerings, private notes of the Pastor, Elders and Deacons/Deaconesses, and any record of attorney-client communications.

    2. Binding Christian Conciliation: Because lawsuits between or among believers are prohibited by scripture, disputes should be worked out between or among Christians and without legal action. See Matthew 18 and I Corinthians 6. By becoming a Partner of His House, Partners agree to submit any disagreement, claim, or action with or against His House to Christian arbitration. If that fails, Partners agree to arbitration through the American Arbitration Association or any arbitration service mutually agreed to by the His House and the aggrieved Partner.

    3. Execution of Documents. The Leadership Team may authorize in writing individuals to enter into contracts or execute legal instruments in the name of and on behalf of His House. Unless authorized by the Leadership Team and, when required, the Active Partners, no officer, agent or other person will have any power or authority to bind the church by any contract or engagement or to pledge its credit or to render it liable for any purpose or to any amount.

    4. INSPECTION OF BYLAWS: The church will keep in its principal office the original or a copy of its Articles of Incorporation and its Constitution & Bylaws, as amended to date, certified by the secretary, which will be open to inspection by the Partners at all reasonable times during the office hours.

    5. ANNUAL ACCOUNTING PERIOD: The annual accounting period for this corporation will be on the first day of January and will end on the last day of December.

    6. AMENDMENT OF CONSTITUTION & BYLAWS: These Bylaws may be amended or repealed and new Bylaws adopted by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the Leadership Team followed by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the Active Partners present and voting at a regular
