The Process for Churches Applying for Membership in the ABMB Conference
The following process outlines the steps involved for any church that wishes to join the ABMB Conference:
- The Church will be invited to participate in conference activities and events for a period of one year
- Before a local church can submit an application for membership in the Conference, it must formally accept and incorporate into its bylaws the Confession of Faith and the Bylaws of the Conference.
- Upon receipt of a petition for membership, the Executive Board of the Conference (“Executive Board”) shall direct the Faith and Life Team, or authorized representatives of the same, to consult with the applicant group regarding its faith position, organization, and other such matters as it may deem necessary.
- The Faith and Life Team shall bring a recommendation concerning the membership application to the Executive Board for presentation at the next convention of the Conference.
