Part 8 - Worship Model



Chapter 1 Keeping the Sunday holy


1. Since it is a man's natural duty to commemorate the Sunday, he should arrange and prepare all the work of the flesh in advance so that there is no restriction in keeping the day holy as taught in the Bible.

2. Since this day is a Sunday, it is to be kept holy all day long. It is proper to pass as a public meeting or private worship service. All day long, holy rest, and do not engage in any business or carnal pleasure except for an emergency. .

3. Prepare even food in advance, and on this day, even family members and guests in the house should not be concerned about worship at the church and sanctifying Sundays.

4. On Sunday morning, pray for yourself and others, individually or as a family, and prepare to communicate with God in corporate worship by praying, studying the Bible, and meditating, especially for blessings while the pastor is serving.

5. It is right to gather together at the appointed time to participate in the worship service in unity from the opening day, and it is not right to enter without special connection until the last blessing.

6. After finishing the official worship service with this solemn attitude, the rest of the day is spent praying and reading the spiritual discipline, especially studying the Bible, meditating, teaching the Bible Q&A, speaking about faith, psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. It is right to call upon the sick, to visit the sick, to give to the poor, to teach the weak, to evangelize to the unbeliever, to exhort, to love, and to do gracious deeds.


Chapter 2 Actions in Church Meetings and Worship


1. When it is time for worship, they will enter the chapel and each have their seats, but keep a neat, solemn and reverent appearance, and pray for their pastor and all those present and those who cannot attend with prayers of contemplation.

2. During the worship service, everyone should worship with a solemn attitude and respect, and do not read anything other than the Bible read or certified by the pastor. Whispers, greetings, squinting, drowsiness, laughter, or any other inappropriate behavior should not be tolerated. Children should have their parents with them, so it is appropriate for a family to sit together in the house of God. This must lead to attendance.


Chapter 3 Reading the Bible in Worship


1. The Bible reading during worship is a part of the official worship service, so it must be read by a pastor or other person with permission.

2. The Bibles of the Old and New Testaments are read aloud in Korean so that the audience can understand them.

3. The chapter and verse of the Bible to be read should be decided according to the wishes of the pastor. If you think it is beneficial, you can interpret any part of it while reading it. Don't make it too short or too boring.


Chapter 4 Poems and Hymns


1. It is the duty of all believers to sing praises to God in the chapel, either together or with one family member, in psalms and hymns, so use words that are consistent with the Bible and words that glorify God.

2. When singing songs praising God, we must do it with all our heart, understand its meaning, and put our hearts into the tune. Practice the knowledge of music to praise God with our hearts and also to sing with our voices. It is right, and it is right for the church members to prepare a hymnbook and sing together.


Chapter 5 Official Prayer


1. It is right to pray at the beginning of the official worship service in the church. We worship the eternal authority of God with humility and confess that we have turned away from God because of the lusts of the flesh and that we have become sinners of no merit. We humbly ask that God grant us the help of the Holy Spirit and the merits of our Lord Jesus Christ in our worship to receive us.

2. After singing a poem or hymn, before preaching, pray including all wishes of the believer, so the following should be included in the prayer.

1) Giving glory. Respect the glory and perfection that God reveals in the creation and counsel of the world, and the clear and complete manifestation in the Scriptures.

2) Thanks. Give thanks for the various graces that God has given you, giving thanks for common grace, special grace, spiritual grace, physical grace, corporate grace, and personal grace, but above all grace the grace that is transcendent, that is, Jesus Christ, the indescribable gift, and the hope of eternal life through him. Thank you very much for the sending of the Holy Spirit and the working of the Holy Spirit.

3) Confession. Confessing the original sin and the sins they have committed, let all those who worship together realize that sin is a very evil thing because its nature is separate from God, and we will speak of every sin that originates from the root of sin. It is a crime that harms a person, a crime committed by accident, a crime committed by habit, and a sin added to the sin, for example, a sin that is erroneous, a sin that is different from a crime committed when there is a way to distinguish it, a sin that is committed after receiving special mercy, and a sin committed after receiving a privilege. These are the sins committed after making an oath with

4) supplication. I have several petitions for you to ask for: forgiveness of sins through the merits of the redeemed blood, and peace with God, and the great and pleasurable results that arise from it, and the Holy Spirit who sanctifies and for the fulfillment of our offices. We will pray for the empowerment to be satisfied, and to give us comfort in the midst of the suffering we deserve as human beings and sinners, and to live in a miserable world. You will ask for it, knowing that it is given for progress.

5) Grounds to seek. When we pray, God's glory is revealed in all the principles allowed in the Old and New Testaments, our shortcomings, God's riches, Jesus' merit, and His intercession for us, and the comfort and joy of His people. it is for

6) Pray for others. We will pray for others, all mankind in the world, for the pouring out of the Holy Spirit on all mankind, and for the peace, purity, and prosperity of the church of God, pray for the pastors and missionaries in each place, and pray for righteousness. All those who are harmed because of it, this church, every church with which we communicate, the sick, the dead, the wretched, the poor and the needy, the stranger, the prisoner, the young and old, the traveling man, and the present church You should pray for the region where you are located, for each official, for the soldiers, and for other necessary things. Which of the titles written above should be said less and more, the pastor who insists on it will think carefully about it.

3. After the sermon, pray for things related to the sermon, and for other formal prayers, pray according to all formalities at that time.

4. As mentioned above, the scope of prayer topics is wide and there are many types, so it is up to the faithfulness and thoughts of the minister in charge.

Our Presbyterians do not follow a certain pattern of formal prayer, but it is right to prepare to pray as well as prepare the sermon before the pastor comes to the chapel. A pastor must peruse the Bible, study and meditate on the book of prayer, and through communion with God, he will gain the power and spirit to pray. In addition, when he intends to pray at any time, he must make up his mind and pray. We will prepare in turn in our hearts what kind of words would be best for us. In this way, we will be equipped with dignity and courtesy when we pray, and it will also be beneficial to those who worship together. A minister shall not defile a significant ceremony by insignificant, irregular, or careless conduct.

5. Everyone who participates in the official prayer should always have a reverent attitude, and it is natural for the congregation to have a certain attitude as much as possible. The posture of standing up to pray is mentioned in the Bible, and it is the practice of the old church and the ritual of the Presbyterian Church. But whether you stand up or sit straight is absolutely fine.


Chapter 6 Sermon


1. Preaching is the policy of saving people, so it must be done with great care. A pastor must strive to be a worker who is not ashamed with all his heart, and must properly divide the word of truth.

2. The text of the sermon is to choose a verse or several verses of the Bible. The purpose of the sermon is to interpret one part of the scope of God's truth, to interpret a long text, or to preach the long text to teach the truth. Explain the nature and limitations of

3. It is right for a preacher to study many methods and meditate or pray and prepare carefully. Do not do it without caution or preparation (2 Samuel 24:24), and follow the simplicity of the gospel, whose language is appropriate for the Scriptures, and will make it easy for even ignorant people to understand. A pastor should not boast of his academics or talents, but should illuminate his teaching by his conduct (Titus 2:10) and set an example for believers in his thoughts, words, love, and purity.

4. The most important thing in official worship is to show group respect to the Most High God. The pastor should not make the sermon too long to prevent important prayers or hymns. It is right to perfect worship.

5. After the sermon, the pastor prays and gives thanks to Almighty God, then sings a poem or hymn and closes with a prayer of blessing on behalf of God. (2 Corinthians 13:14; Jude 24:25; Heb 13:20,21; Ephesians 3:20,21; 2 Thessalonians 3:16, 17; Num 6:24-26)

6. As clearly taught in the Bible, you should pay the church expenses, spread the gospel in and out of the country, and make regular, organized, and joyful donations to help the needy. Donation should be done knowing the purpose of receiving grace and as part of the worship service.

7. No church under the jurisdiction of the presbytery shall be permitted to preach without the permission of the session or pastor, except by a person sent by the presbytery.


Chapter 7 Church School


1. The procedure applied at the church school is to study prayer, hymns, the Bible, creeds, the church's cooking and constitution, etc. Because of the church school, attendance at the official Sunday worship service and the responsibility of parents to directly educate their children should not be hindered. The church school should always be under the jurisdiction of the session.

2. The church school principal opens at a certain time and examines each class from beginning to end, so that each class has a proper teacher, and the teacher and students maintain a proper order, inspire students to believe and focus on their studies, and have a godly attitude. should have

3. A church school teacher will prepare diligently for his work by studying the Bible, meditating, and praying. If there are students in the classroom who do not yet believe, it is important to personally exhort them and visit them, especially when there is someone who is sick or encounters an accident, and prays for God's blessing and is punctual to encourage students to be on time. Do.

Chapter 8: Prayer Meeting

1. Meetings for the purpose of prayer should follow the guidance of the session, but if possible, continue to meet at regular weekly meetings. A meeting like this should be led by a pastor, a member of the session, or a brother with considerable qualifications in the church, and it will be conducted with prayers, hymns, Bible readings, and simple exhortations.

2. We will encourage each member of the church to pray, but be reverent and not be too boring.


Chapter 9 Baptism of Infants


1. Baptism does not need to be delayed in vain, and, regardless of the circumstances, it cannot be performed by lay people, but must be performed by a minister of Christ who has been called to be a minister of God.

2. Baptism is customary in front of all the congregations in the church.

3. Those who wish to have their children baptized notify the pastor of their will, and one or two of their parents will bring the child to be baptized.

4. Before baptism, the minister explains the nature and necessity of the sacrament and the purpose of this rite as follows.


'This ceremony was established by Christ, and it is the certification of justification by faith. Just as the descendants of Abraham had the privilege to be circumcised in the Old Testament, so the descendants of the saints under the grace of the gospel have the privilege to perform this ceremony. He said, “The grace of the gospel extends to the saints and their families.” The apostles also baptized in the house. Because our dispositions have been defiled by our sins, we must wash them with the blood of Christ and be sanctified by the power of the Holy Spirit.” will say


The pastor also exhorted the parents as follows, saying that they should be careful and fulfill their duties as parents.


'Teach their children with the word of God and teach them according to the holy principles taught in the Old and New Testaments. The point of this principle is simply taught in the creeds of our church, the confession of faith, and the Great and Smaller Catechisms. All these books are to help parents. will be. I will pray for my children and pray with them myself, setting the example of faithfulness and godliness in the eyes of the child, gaining strength from God, and working hard to grow in the character and discipline of the Lord.'


5. The pastor asks:


1) Do you recognize the need for the washing of this child with the blood of Jesus Christ and the renewing grace of the Holy Spirit?

2) Do you believe that this child will be saved by trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ, just as you long for the blessing of God's covenant for this child and strive for your own salvation?

3) Now you completely dedicate this child to God, rely on God's grace with a humble heart, and do your best to show this child your own godly duty, pray for this child, pray with this child, and follow the path of our holy faith. Do you pledge to teach and work hard in every institution God has directed, so that this child may grow up in the nurture and instruction of the Lord?

6. After that, the pastor prays for this ceremony and calls out the child's name, saying, 'I baptize you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen'  something to do.


While saying these words, the pastor baptizes the child's head with water and ends with a prayer. Baptism is of course performed in front of the congregation, but in special cases, it can also be performed in a private home, so the pastor decides on the matter.


Chapter 10 Entrance Ceremony


1. A child of a church member who has been baptized as an infant shall be under the supervision and rule of the church, teach writing, read the Catechism, the Apostles' Creed, and the Lord's Prayer, pray, hate sin, fear God, and fear the Lord Jesus Christ It is one's duty and privilege to teach to love and obey to remember that

2. The age at which a boy reaches the age of majority cannot be determined, but the responsibility for determining the qualifications of general members lies with the session, that is, the session decides this as well.

3. When an unbaptized adult intends to enter the church, it is customary to baptize after showing satisfactory evidence of his knowledge and faithfulness to God and proclaiming his faith in public.

4. It is right for the infant baptized person to formally declare his or her faith in front of the church when he first partakes of the sacrament with the permission of the session, but it will make it clear that he or she has a special relationship with the church from birth.

5. The entrance questions and answers are as follows.

1) On the day of official declaration of the coming of age, those who enter the church with the permission of the session stand in front of the congregation, and the pastor states the fact as follows.


'By being baptized as an infant, he became a member of the church from an early age, became heirs to the blessings of the covenant, and among those who made sacrifices to God through their parents' solemn vows, the 00 is now in the family of faith to bear the responsibilities and privileges related to his inheritance. Because he wants to become a Christian, the session decided to allow this member as a result of asking and answering questions about his faith in Christ and the knowledge of the Lord's body in the sacrament.'


2) If the person to be baptized was present, the pastor explained

'Baptism is the grafting of us into Christ and the mark and sealing of union with the Lord. Now that you have acknowledged it, you are welcome and grateful to be accompanied by the saints.'  something to do.

3) After that, the pastor will tell the person who takes the oath in Paragraph 2 above.


'All of you who have participated in this event to formally profess your faith should know that you are making a strict covenant with God and his church by approving the following declarations and permissions.'


(1) Do you believe that you are a sinner before God, and that you deserve His wrath and have no hope but to be saved from His great mercy?

(2) Do you believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of sinners, and do you receive Him and rely only on Him, knowing that Jesus is the only one who can save you, as the Gospel says?

(3) Are you now determined to become followers of Christ, relying only on the grace of the Holy Spirit, to do the same, to forsake all your sins, and to live according to his teachings and examples?

(4) Do you allow yourself to submit to the jurisdiction and discipline of the church and strive to achieve its purity and peace?


It is then briefly admonished, baptized, and closed with prayer to those who bear the essentials of a strict duty.

6. A person who has a certificate of transfer from another church announces the name to the church and introduces its devotion and love.


Chapter 11 The Eucharist


1. It is good to celebrate the Lord's Supper often, but the session of each church decides how many times a year it is to be celebrated, but it is decided as appropriate for edification.

2. Those who do not understand the doctrine and those who shame the church cannot partake of the Lord's Supper.

3. When you want to celebrate the sacrament, it is natural to make an official advertisement to the church. Advertise at least one week in advance. On the day of the advertisement or during that week, hold a preliminary worship service so that all members of the church can know the nature of the sacrament and prepare it with a reasonable mind. to attend this sacrament.

4. After the sermon is over, this is what the pastor is supposed to do.


'The Lord's Supper is a rite in remembrance of Christ, as a reminder of his death until his second coming; it gives strength to his people to resist sin, to strengthen them in all afflictions, to encourage and encourage them in their responsibilities, to love and to encourage them. It is of infinite benefit to inspire them with zeal, to arouse faith and holy thoughts, and to establish peace of conscience and hope.'

Be on the lookout for those who violate the Bible, those who do not know the doctrine, those who shame the church, and those who have sinned in secret. To those who trust in the redemption of Christ for redemption, those who learn the doctrine of the gospel and have a perfect knowledge of discerning the body of the Lord, and those who are determined to cut off their sins and lead a holy and godly life.

As the Lord has ordained this sacrament, this sacrament shows the unity of the saints. It is right to ask them to stay until

5. After preparing the bread and grape juice, neatly cover the table for the sacrament, arrange the seats for the believers to participate, and place the elders in a convenient place. ‘On the night the Lord Jesus Christ was arrested, he took the bread, gave thanks, and broke it. The Lord said, "This is my body, and it was given for your sake. Do this in remembrance of me." After giving it to the elders to share, he took the cup and said, 'Our Savior also took the cup, and after giving thanks, he gave it to the disciples. As you said, this cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is shed for the forgiveness of sins. Do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.'

It is proper that the order of the sacrament is received by the pastor after all the church members have received it, and then the pastor gives it to the elders.

6. Each believer must act in the spirit of making a covenant with the Lord. During the dispensing of this sacrament, meditate quietly, give thanks, make supplications, and pray.

7. In a few words, the pastor can exhort the members who participated in the Lord's Supper to be remembered. In this ceremony, he describes the grace of God shown through Jesus and the duty he ought to perform as a man of God. They fulfill their duties satisfactorily, and since they have already received Christ Jesus as Lord, it is right to exhort them to walk in him and do good works. It is right for the pastor to give advice to those who are in the audience and to warn them as follows.

'Teach them the duty to believe, and if they do not obey Christ, they live in a disregard for the holy rites, so they speak of their sins and perils and exhort them, so that they can prepare themselves to participate in the next sacrament.'

After that, the pastor prayed, thanking God for the abundant grace and infinite mercy given through this sacrament, and asking for forgiveness if there are any shortcomings during this ceremony and praying for receiving their bodies and deeds. Helped by the grace of the Holy Spirit to receive and walk in the Lord Jesus Christ, making sure that they hold fast to what they have received, that no one will snatch their crown, let their words and deeds conform to the gospel, that they always receive the death of Jesus in the body They will take it upon themselves to let the life of Jesus appear in their bodies, and to let their light shine before men, so that they may see their good deeds and glorify their Father in heaven.

Donations are made at this time for the needy or for other spiritual works, and the order is determined by the resolution of the session. After that, a psalm and a hymn are sung and closed with a blessing prayer or other blessing prayer as follows.

‘God, who gave us the peace who brought our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, from the dead by the blood of the everlasting covenant, perfect you in every good work to do his will, and bring joy before him into our hearts through Jesus Christ. May it be done. Glory be to you forever, Amen."

8. Some local churches have a habit of fasting before offering the Lord's Supper. In times like these, on Saturdays and Mondays other than Sundays, two or three pastors are invited to hold meetings and receive great grace. It is right to do what you want according to the customs and customs.


Chapter 12 Wedding Ceremony


1. Marriage is not a sacrament, nor is it unique to the church of Christ, but it is a sacred rite established by God. The state enacts marriage rules for the benefit of the people, and all citizens are obliged to observe them.

2. Since the saints should marry in the Lord, it is right to have a pastor or other minister officiate in order to conduct the wedding with special admonition and proper prayer.

3. Marriage is limited to one son and one daughter, and cannot be within the limits of blood relatives and kinship forbidden in the Bible.

4. Men and women must each reach an appropriate age, so after obtaining the consent of parents or guardians and proving it in front of the pastor, the pastor officiates.

5. Parents shall not force their children to marry, nor shall they forbid their marriage without good cause.

6. Marriage is of a common nature. Since it is deeply related to the welfare of the people, family happiness, and religious honor, the wedding ceremony is decided several days in advance and widely announced. Pastors pay close attention to this matter, so that they do not violate the laws of God or the laws of the state, and in order not to damage the peace and security of the family, both sides' proof that they have no objection to this marriage is required.

7. The marriage will be held in the presence of sufficient witnesses and the minister will give the marriage certificate upon request.

8. The pastor records the name and date of the married person in the marriage register so that it is convenient for those who request it later.


Chapter 13 Funerals


1. The proper ceremony to be performed at the funeral is to sing an appropriate poem or hymn, read a proper Bible, give a proper explanation according to the pastor's thoughts, help those who have suffered a particularly tragic event receive God's grace, turn their sorrows into eternal good, and I pray that you will be protected and comforted in your misery.

2. There are many things that the presiding pastor can do at this funeral, but do not lose sight of its main meaning. Be careful about warning, admonishment, and comforting the survivors. Those who have misused God's Word and lived without faith, but passed away, say that there is hope of the gospel. Be careful not to let anything happen.


Chapter 14 The Day of Fasting and the Day of Thanksgiving


1. Although the days of fasting and thanksgiving are not disclosed in the Bible, keeping them according to the circumstances is appropriate according to the teachings of the Bible.

2. The day of fasting and thanksgiving is kept privately by an individual member or one family member, sometimes by a church or among close friends, and by all churches under the jurisdiction of a presbytery or by all churches across the country.

3. The days of fasting and thanksgiving are announced in advance at a convenient time so that the members of the church can organize their bodily affairs and prepare to fulfill their duties on this day.

4. It is right to hold official worship on a day like this, so sing a poem or a hymn, read the Bible, and preach, but let them all apply on that day.

5. On the fast day, the pastor explains the special reason for keeping this day. In times like these, we spend more time than we usually do during worship, pray earnestly and make special confessions, and spend the whole day with a contrite heart before God.

6. Regarding Thanksgiving Day, the pastor should explain the reason and special circumstances of keeping this day, but give thanks by singing poems and hymns so that it is appropriate for the time period. On a day like this, it is natural to spend it with a holy and pleasant heart, but in the midst of communication, I spend it in awe.


Chapter 15 Secret Prayer and Family Worship


1. In addition to the official worship service in the church, it is a natural duty for individuals to pray privately and for a family to worship and pray privately to God.

2. Secret prayer is clearly commanded by our Lord. Each person should set aside a time to pray independently, read the Bible, meditate in holiness, and examine himself solemnly.

3. Family worship should be held in every house, so pray morning and evening, read the Bible, and sing praises.

4. The one who takes the lead should exercise this office, but with due care he must be careful that all household members participate, and that no one is absent from the beginning to the end. When the Bible is read, he stops all ordinary business, he worships solemnly, but when he prays and sings, Be careful together.

5. The person taking the lead should be very careful to teach his children and family members according to the Christian principles, and strive for this work as soon as he gets a suitable opportunity. forbid


Chapter 16 City Punishment


1. The church's censure should be given appropriately according to the nature of the offense. If it is a crime against an individual, it may be secretly chastised at the judgment seat, or it will be censored in public by the main judicatory or publicly announced in front of the church. Even if the sin is revealed, if it is not excessively serious due to a strange circumstance or a special reason, it is secretly admonished or punished for abandonment. However, if it is a punishment for weapons, it will often be announced to the church, and expulsion and dismissal from the church will be pronounced directly in front of the church, or it will only be announced to the church according to the resolution of the main governing body.

2. If a church member or staff member commits a crime that deserves punishment, this governing body shall judge the matter with a compassionate heart, and be wary of that person with meekness and humility.

3. If the discipline is not an accusation and it is a secret, this governing body may send one or two members to secretly give orders. However, if the fault is discovered, it is normal for the president to give orders from the judgment seat and announce it in the public meeting.

4. The censure of abandonment is a censure that serves as a model for others, so it is either pronounced on the person himself or announced at the time of the main judicatory's disclosure.

5. Weapon censure should be done with extreme caution, but let the offender realize his precarious stereotype because he is unable to participate in the sacraments of the Church of the Living God, and help him to achieve repentance by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. After judgment by the governing body, the president sentences the offender as follows:

'Now, since there is clear evidence that Mr. 000 (pastor, elder, deacon, general members) committed 00 sin (name of sin), the presbytery (or session) is satisfied with the complete repentance of the brother in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and his authority and his name. It is condemned (suspension of service) from participating in the sacrament of the church until the evidence is presented.'  something to do. When it is deemed necessary, it closes by giving appropriate counsel or precepts and praying that Almighty God may bless you with this discipline.

6. After the decision to be excommunicated, the president of the session formally declared the conclusion of the examination of the guilty brother in front of the church and explained the reason why it cannot be placed in the church, then Matthew 18:15-18 and 1 Corinthians Based on the teaching in verses 5:1-5, we show that we have the right to expel unclean members from school, explain the nature and benefits of this punishment, and teach our friends how to be wary of fellowship with those under this serious punishment. Declare the facts together.

'Now, the member of this church, Mr. 000, has enough evidence of committing the 00 sin (name of sin), so he counseled and prayed many times, but he persisted and did not listen to the church's counsel and did not show evidence of repentance. The session declares that he cannot partake of the Lord's Supper and that fellowship among the saints is cut off.'  do.

After that, he prays to God to help those who have been excommunicated to realize their sins and repent, and to help build up all sincere believers.

7. The declaration of resignation will be made by the president as follows.

'The pastor of this presbytery (or elder, deacon) of this presbytery said that sufficient evidence of the sin of Mr. 00 was revealed. As a result of the examination, the presbytery (or session) of Mr. 00 decided that Mr. 000 should serve as the pastor (or elder, deacon) of Christ Church. Since it is confirmed that it does not make sense, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and his authority, the pastor (elder, deacon) office of Mr.

If the declaration included censure or expulsion, the president continued to say, 'We also, by the same authority, refuse to participate in the sacrament of the church until he has shown satisfactory evidence of sincere repentance ( I declare the cessation of fellowship with saints.”  The declaration of resignation will be as strict as the declaration of expulsion in the preceding chapter.


Chapter 17 The Sea Punishment


1. The rulers of the church will often associate with the person whose sacrament is suspended, pray with him, and pray for him.

2. When the governing body is satisfied with the truth of the repentance of a person who has punished a person, by the resolution of the governing body, he or she may confess in front of the governing body or in a church vacancy, restore the right to participate in the sacraments of the church again, and possibly be reinstated. At this time the governing body declares to him as follows:

'Those who are now suspended from participating in the Lord's Supper (those who have been evangelized pastors, elders, deacons, and those who have been suspended) Mr. 000 now satisfies the church by showing evidence of repentance, so this session I will punish you by ex officio and restore your participation in church liturgy (whether you have an office, you will be reinstated and all rights to that office will be restored).

3. When a member who has been expelled from church repents and wants to rejoin the church, the session shall allow it after obtaining satisfactory evidence of his sincere repentance. announce the resolution When it is decided to restore the church, ask the excommunicated member and answer the following questions in front of the church.

Q: Do you know that it was fair and merciful that you confessed your sin of rebellion against God and the great sin that harmed his church with a sincere heart?

Answer: yes

Q: Are you now confessing your sins and stubbornness with sincere repentance and contrite heart and asking for forgiveness from God and his church with a humble heart?

Answer: yes

Q: By the grace of God, will you promise to live with a humble heart and sobriety, do your best to shine the teachings of our Savior God, and do your best to make your words and deeds worthy of the Gospel?

Answer: yes

(Then the minister gives appropriate exhortations and comforts to the contrite, and publishes a proclamation of restoration as follows.)

'Even if he has been cut off from the saints now, Mr. 000 has shown satisfactory repentance, so with the honor of the Lord Jesus Christ and his authority, our church session lifted the excommunication declared the previous day to achieve eternal salvation and to participate in all the grace of the Lord Jesus. to restore the right to communion with the church'  and close with prayer and thanksgiving.

4. If a person who has been dismissed from office has made an official confession and answered questions as in the preceding paragraph, he/she will receive an appointment ceremony. When reinstating an honest pastor and appointing a person who has been removed from office, the presbytery will be extremely disciplined. If the banquet has been ordered to be suspended, the banquet will be permitted. After granting the right to preach, he will be reinstated and installed, but he will not be able to exercise his office until this declaration is complete.

5. An elder or deacon who has been removed from office cannot serve unless he or she is re-elected from the church.

6. When a member under punishment wants to declare repentance and want to recover when he moves to a province far from the place of the jurisdictional where he was punished, he may sign the registration of the resolution of the governing body and issue it to that body. Punish with those who have been punished.


Chapter 18 Offerings


1. Each member of the church should cultivate the regular offering of offerings with the wealth they have received from the Lord. This will help spread the gospel to all peoples under the command of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a reasonable and very beautiful thing to set an opportunity for giving. As taught in the Bible, these offerings are part of the solemn worship of Almighty God.
