Disciplinary Procedures

Members of this Fellowship shall be liable to discipline, censure, or removal from membership and annulment of ordination and cancellation of credentials for any of the following reasons:

  • Activities that bring reproach upon the Christian ministry of the ECAMFC.
  • Immoral or sinful conduct, or living in a state of transgression of the Holy Scriptures of the Bible (1Cor. 6:9,10 Gal. 5:19-21) as interpreted by the Executive Board based on the Tenets of Faith of this Fellowship.
  • Holding or teaching doctrines that are contrary to the Word of God or in opposition to the Tenets of Faith of this Fellowship.
  • Failure to comply with the terms of the constitution and bylaws of this Fellowship.

The Board of Directors will meet when a member is considered for disciplinary procedures, if it is needed. The Board will take the following standard steps:

  1. Information concerning the case will be collected
  2. The members of the Board will examine the information available, determine if this is a case to further investigate and identify more information that may be needed.
  3. When enough information is available, a decision is made to inform the member who is given the opportunity to defend his case before the Board.
  4. The Board then will review all information and decide the outcome of the proceedings. The decision is final and not subject to appeal.
