We believe in the autonomy of the local church, free from any external authority or control, with the right of self-government under Christ headship (Titus 1:5). We believe that it is scriptural for doctrinally sound churches to cooperate with each other for the presentation and propagation of the faith. Each local church, however, through its elders and their interpretation and application of Scripture, and through congregational feedback, should be the sole judge of the measure and method of its cooperation. The elders should determine via prayer, searching the Scriptures, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit all other matters of administration, policy, discipline, benevolence, and government (Acts 15:19-31; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 5:4-7,13; 1 Peter 5:1-4).
