Principles and Practice
of Reformed Church Polity
"The Lord of the Church has revealed in His Word particular
principles concerning the way He wishes His church to be governed. In the
"Church Order" these principles get worked out into concrete regulations."
During the course of 1998 when Rev C Bouwman was
minister of the Church of Kelmscott
he conducted a fortnightly Post-Confession class in which he dealt with the "Principles and Practice of Reformed Church Polity."
What follows are the notes taken by one of the "students".
A revised/improved book form edition of these
notes entitled "Spiritual Order for the Church"is
available from Premier
Printing in Winnipeg.
