Consensus Polls

  • Brandon needs to email all "members by declaration" and invite them to participate
  • Because it's so hard to work on the consensus polls on the wiki, Brandon would like to change our website to a set of static pages and a set of TypeWith.Me pages

Legal organization

Certain characteristics are generally attributed to churches. These attributes of a church have been developed by the IRS and by court decisions. They include:


recognized creed and form of worship formal code of doctrine and discipline distinct religious history (even though we weren't religious at the time...) membership not associated with any other church or denomination (unless this mean "our members shall have no other church memberships") literature of its own established places of worship regular congregations regular religious services

Future Yes/Maybe

distinct legal existence; definite and distinct ecclesiastical government Sunday schools for the religious instruction of the young

Future No/Maybe

organization of ordained ministers ordained ministers selected after completing prescribed courses of study schools for the preparation of its ministers
