Our 5th Principle calls for “the use of the democratic process within our congregations.” We emphasize democratic principles in our theology, history, and congregational independence. One way we express our congregational will is by using democratic processes in many areas of church programming and management. We apply the democratic process when the congregation votes on important issues. For example, we vote to call a minister, make capital improvements, or whether to participate in social justice initiatives.

Our Elected Leaders
The congregation as a whole elects new leaders once a year. Most of our elected leaders serve two-year terms; some serve three-year terms.
