Affiliate a Church
Churches that have chosen to partner with Open Bible Churches realize they can more effectively fulfill the Great Commission by working together than they could working alone. Our purpose is to globally make disciples, develop leaders, and plant churches.
Open Bible’s relationship with affiliated churches offers a balance of affiliation and freedom, providing accountability without undue control. Affiliated churches own their property and other assets. They agree to either adopt bylaw models provided by Open Bible, with a range of governance options, or abide by bylaws that have been approved by Open Bible as containing minimum requirements, including integrity in practices and protections against abuse of power. In addition to having voice and vote in major decisions that affect the direction of the association, affiliated churches also jointly support missionaries, church planting, leadership training and support, and mutual accountability in the USA and around the globe.
