book-bookoforder2016-17pdf600The 2016-17 edition of the Book of Order is now available for download at www.epc.org/resources/documents. This 260-page pdf document is Volume 1 of the EPC Constitution and includes amendments to the Book of Order and Rules for Assembly ratified by the 36th General Assembly (2016), as well as Acts of the 36th General Assembly. The Book of Order is comprised of the Book of Government, Book of Discipline, Book of Worship, Rules for Assembly, Acts of Assembly, and Forms for Discipline.

The Constitution of the EPC consists of the Book of Order, the Westminster Confession of Faith (including the Larger and Shorter Catechisms), and the document “Essentials of Our Faith.” All these are subordinate to Scripture, which is “the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks.”

A spiral-bound print version is in production, and is tentatively scheduled for a February release. Watch for an announcement in EPConnection when it is available.
