The primary purpose of this document is to serve as an instructive and informative guide to church life at Red Oak Church. The direction of this document is guided by Scripture and seeks to relay the timeless vision of Jesus Christ for His church in a way that is relevant for this local church today. As a family, we are not bound to perform according to this document, instead we submit to the authority of Scripture as the final arbiter on all issues. (Psalm 119, II Timothy 3:14-17, II Peter 1:19-21). The elder body may at any time add to, subtract from, or revise this document to better serve this church. While the Scripture is the final arbiter on all issues, the elders of Red Oak Church will serve as the interpretive authority on Biblical truth.
