Orange Christian Assembly
We recognise the Holy Scriptures as the only authority
for doctrine and practise (II Timothy 3:16).
We recognise as fellow believers, those who freely confess
that Jesus Christ is their Lord and Saviour (Romans 10:9), and
live lives consistent with that confession (II Timothy 2:19).
We have a formal 'working with children' policy as required
by the commission for young people. This involves careful
screening of volunteers who work with children, and procedures
for dealing with complaints against members of the assembly,
and against those who are not members. Complaints should be
referred to one of the elders.
We practise believers baptism as a confessional sign that the
person being baptised has repented and believed the gospel
that Jesus Christ died in their place.
We gather at the Lords request each Lord's Day (Sunday) to
break bread and drink of the fruit of the vine in rememberance
of the Lord Jesus, His life, death, resurrection and present glory
until He returns. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
We seek by all means to advance the knowledge of God and the gospel
for the Lord is not willing that any should perish but that all
should come to knowledge of the truth. (II Timothy 1:4-6).
We are an unincorporated association of believers. Leadership
is vested in 'the elders', a small group of men qualified
according the 1 Timothy 2:1-7 and recognised by the assembly as
We have no formal membership procedure but recognise as members
those who are in regular attendence and confess Christ by word and action,
being in general agreement with doctrines clearly taught in Scripture.
