Constitution and Bylaws
The Constitution/Bylaws of River City Grace Community Church are based on the Bible, God’s Word, comprised of sixty-six books that are inspired and inerrant in the original manuscripts. As God’s perfect and complete written Word, the Bible cannot and shall not be amended (Proverbs 30:6; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 22:18-19).
The practical understanding and application of this Constitution/Bylaws to the life and ministry of River City Grace Community Church shall be under the leadership and direction of the Pastor-Elders (Acts 20:28; Hebrews 13:17), in keeping with the church’s Statement of Faith.
Philosophy of Missions
Thank you for taking the time to read our Philosophy of Missions. We have drafted this important document with a desire to glorify our God and Savior by obeying His revealed will in the Scriptures (2 Cor 4:15). Accordingly, we intend for this philosophy to clarify our understanding of our mission as a church, as He has written in the Scriptures. With clear biblical guidelines, we can consistently evaluate our faithfulness to God and to what He has called us. More specifically, the philosophy we have outlined herein can serve River City Grace Community Church in our pursuit of faithfulness to the Lord in at least two key areas:
• Stewardship of our congregation’s resources, whether spiritual or material.
• Leadership of our congregation in partnering with others outside our congregation, as well as sending and supporting our own members.
In short, this Philosophy of Missions is offered to prevent us from haphazardly carrying out God’s work and to promote our overall purpose as a church in the area of missions: to see God exalted as His grace and truth in Jesus Christ abound in and overflow to more and more people.
