The Council is at its heart relationships among individuals, churches and centers in the service of our common purpose and mission. Through the Council local churches and ministry centers find it possible to find and develop connection with the wider church. In mutual encouragement and resourcing through the Council, local ministries are strengthened. For the more certain presentation and security of the principles of our work for the Lord and for the purpose of preserving the liberties inherent in each individual member of this Christian Council, we do declare and establish this constitution.
