Governance

God requires that a Christian congregation shall conform to His divine Word in doctrine and practice (Psalm. 119:105; Matthew 28:18-20; Galatians 1:6-8; 2 Timothy 4:1-5) and that all things be done decently and in order (1 Corinthians 14:40). Therefore, we, the members of Zion Lutheran Church, located at Bismarck, North Dakota, accept and subscribe to the following Constitution and Bylaws, in accordance with which all spiritual and material affairs of our congregation shall be governed.
