Membership/Baptism Issue

National Council is committed to shepherd a process to allow Fellowship churches to discuss and decide on our Membership-Baptism issue.

The National Council study paper on the membership issue was distributed to Fellowship churches in September 2015. It sought to address the theological, pastoral and practical elements surrounding this issue.

A copy of this paper is found below. In addition, delegates to the 2015 Fellowship National Conference (FNC) discussed the issue and the Council's study paper.  A copy of the FNC Report is also available for download.
