Church Discipline

Mission 1 Care will follow the biblical pattern for Church discipline. The following scriptures define the churches response to church discipline

Steps for Biblical Discipline

Go to tell the individual(s) their fault(s) alone. If they repent you have won the person.

If they do not hear it form you, take one or two more witnesses, so that every word maybe established.

If they still refuse to hear, tell it to the church.

If they still refuse to hear, treat them like a heathen or tax collector.

Mat 18:15 “If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone. If the member listens to you, you have regained that one.

Mat 18:16 But if you are not listened to, take one or two others along with you, so that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses.

Mat 18:17 If the member refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if the offender refuses to listen even to the church, let such a one be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.

15 If your brother wrongs you, go and show him his fault, between you and him privately. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother.

16 But if he does not listen, take along with you one or two others, so that every word may be confirmed and upheld by the testimony of two or three witnesses.

17 If he pays no attention to them [refusing to listen and obey], tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a pagan and a tax collector. [Lev. 19:17; Deut. 19:15.]

18 Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven.

Restoration of a member/believer

Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

Forgiveness releases us from sin. Restoration establishes us in the truth.

Restoration picks us up, cleans us, so we can never be moved again. Restoration means to mend what has been broken or rent. Restoration makes us, what we ought to be. Restoration makes us fully ready for service Restoration repairs what is broken

Restoration is done in a spirit of meekness. Only the broken are masters at mending.

We as a church believe in the restoration of worshippers, members and ministers.

We will labor to restore worshippers, members and ministers who have repented of failure

To restore worshippers, members and ministers we need seven things:

1) Proper Theology
The church is a redemptive community.
Worship, preaching and the church are redemptive in their nature Luke 15

2) A great work of grace.
The more excellent ministry of Jesus is free from condemnation and full of the spirit of life. Roman 8:1; Hebrews 8:6

3) A great desire for truth.
Jesus is full of grace and full of truth. He desires truth on the inward part. Psalms 51

4) Brokenness
Only the broken are masters at mending. Psalms 119:67; Galatians 6:1

5) A great work of patience.
Restoration is not an event, restoration takes time.
Restoration is a process. Galatians 5:22 – 23; I Corinthians 13:4

6) A great understanding of the “systems of life”.
There are six systems in life, spirit, soul, body, family, financial and social, which must be healed or restored for balanced living.
I Thessalonians 5:23

7) A relationship with the King.

The restorer and the restored must want the king’s agenda, aim and ambition for life. It takes the mind of Christ to restore. Philippians 2:9 -11

  1. Confront the individual on the area of failure.
  2. Confront the offended or participating party, parties or individuals involved in the failure.
  3. Dialog until the truth is discovered or known.
  4. Look for sorrow over the act or actions done. Look for a willingness to change. Stand the individual down from service.
  5. Look for fruit, actions and behavior which demonstrate repentance.
  6. Dialog with the elders if the events are far reaching or could impact the scope of ministry or compromise integrity.
  7. Consult legal advice when necessary.
  8. Consult professional counselors when necessary.
  9. Assign an elder to oversee the individual and meet with them and their spouse if applicable.
  10. Assign the individual to some group for accountability, dialog, healing and evaluation.
  11. Review the health of the individual in six major areas, the “systems of life”, and strengthen areas of weakness.
  12. Continue to monitor a repentant attitude and actions.
  13. Continue to monitor family and marriage issues if applicable.
  14. Evaluate credibility issues. Is the climate and atmosphere improving in the Church or ministry to receive and believe the individual? Individuals need credibility to minister appropriately.
  15. Discover if the offended parties or participants are ready to receive ministry from the individual being restored.
  16. Look for areas where the individual being restored can begin to serve, along with a team.
  17. Monitor behavior, follow-up on area of previous failure. Look for integrity in all areas.
  18. Increase areas of service over time, monitor balanced living, credibility and integrity. Repeat any steps necessary.
  19. Consult with elders, legal advisors, and counselors to monitor process, share concerns and other factors to see the individual fully restored.
  20. Keep moving forward, review 10, 11, 12, 13,14, 15, until the individual is fully restored.
  21. Healthy ministers produce, healthy ministry.
  22. Restoration is not an event it is a process.
  23. Restoration is God’s will.
