Church Bylaws Kit

Bylaws Guide With Model Examples


Bylaws don’t matter until they matter – but one day, they will matter. After hundreds and hundreds of hours of study, after paying tens of thousands of dollars to lawyers who are experts in the 501C3 world, Fellowship Church came up with bylaws that are in concert with the New Testament and, also, in concert with our culture and our context. This bylaws kit allows leaders the opportunity to lead with great accountability and make decisions rapidly with tremendous protection.

A great home is only as good as its foundation, and when it comes to the legal world we live in, these bylaws are the best foundation we have ever seen for a church. So, take these bylaws, add your church’s name and tweak them if you like. Make them your own!

  • An in-depth legal brief including model examples of the Amended Articles of Incorporation of Fellowship Church and Amended and Restated Bylaws of Fellowship Church
