CONSTITUTION

FOR

HOCUTT BAPTIST CHURCH

OF

CLAYTON, NORTH CAROLINA

PREAMBLE

We declare and establish this constitution for the preservation and security of the principles of our faith so that this body may be governed in an orderly manner. This constitution will preserve the liberties of each individual member of this church and the freedom of action of this body in its relation to other churches of the same faith.

ARTICLE 1 – NAME

This body shall be known as the Hocutt Baptist Church. The church is located in the town of Clayton, North ...view middle of the document...

B. A. Hocutt for his many contributions to the Clayton community. Ground breaking for the first church building took place on February 17, 1957, on land donated to the church by Mrs. B. A. Hocutt.

The first phase of the building program was completed and services held on June 16, 1957. The sanctuary was completed in June of 1961. In November of 1975, the church dedicated an educational unit. In January of 2002, a new multipurpose building opened and was dedicated to the Lord.

Through the years, Hocutt Baptist Church has seen visions and has dreamed dreams concerning its mission. God has blessed the church as it has followed Christ’s leadership. By the continuing guidance of the Holy Spirit, the church seeks to proclaim the gospel and minister to all peoples. The church will heed the words of Jesus our Savior and Lord to “make disciples.”

From the first 63 members, the membership has increased and will continue to increase as long as the members of Hocutt Baptist Church seek after God’s good and perfect will.

ARTICLE 3 – PURPOSE

Being led by the Holy Spirit, we the members of Hocutt Baptist Church, believe our purposes are to: worship God; evangelize the lost; fellowship together; minister to those in need; and disciple members to a greater Christian maturity.

Worship God - Hebrews 12:28-29
True worship is single-minded, unhindered, unqualified concentration on Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Evangelize the lost - Matthew 28:18-20
Evangelism is the purposeful participation of individual believers and the church in God’s plan of salvation for sinful man. This means we are to “go” and “tell” the good news of Jesus Christ to lost people around the world.

Fellowship together - Acts 2:44-47
Fellowship is a powerful testimony to the unsaved world. Fellowship shows the power of a resurrected Savior. Fellowship binds and holds Christ’s church together.

Minister to those in need - Matthew 20:25-28
Ministry is having the heart of a servant. It is seeking to identify oneself with Jesus. When we do this as a church we will meet the needs of all people, no matter what their condition. The church will please God only when it seeks to serve. Jesus said, “I have come not to be served, but to serve.” The church should have the same attitude.

Disciple members - Matthew 28:18-20
The people of Christ as disciple-makers should live their lives in a state of continual learning and growing. The church needs to keep obeying that which Jesus commanded. His ideas, words, and commands are what the church should teach every member.

ARTICLE 4 - CHURCH ORDINANCES

As a constant memorial to our Christian faith and worship, our church observes periodically the two New Testament church ordinances: the ordinance of baptism and the ordinance of communion (also called the Lord’s Supper).

ARTICLE 5 – CHURCH POLITY

Under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the government of this church is vested in the...
