“I am excited about this new Book of Order,” said Jerry Iamurri, Assistant Stated Clerk. It provides clarity on several key issues that we’ve been working on over the last several years.”
This 254-page document is Volume 1 of the EPC Constitution and includes amendments to the Book of Order and Rules for Assembly ratified by the 38th General Assembly (2018), as well as Acts of the 38th 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.
“We highly recommended that each Pastor and Clerk of Session obtain a copy of this latest version,” Iamurri added.
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.”
