“The 2020 Book of Order has a fresh new look, and includes all the decisions ratified by the 39th General Assembly last June in Denver,” said Jerry Iamurri, Assistant Stated Clerk. “Each of our pastors and clerks of session should have this valuable reference in their libraries.”

This 252-page document is Volume 1 of the EPC Constitution and includes amendments to the Book of Order and Rules for Assembly ratified by the 39th General Assembly (2019), as well as Acts of the 39th 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.”
