THE DEED OF CHURCH ORDER AND THE DOCTRINAL STANDARS OF THE METHODIST CHURCH IN RWANDA:
The Methodist Church claims and cherishes its place in the Holy Catholic Church
which is the Body of Christ.It rejoices in the inheritance of the Apostolic Faith
and loyality accepts the fundamental principles of the historic creeds
and of the Protesatant reformation.It ever remembers that in the Providence of God,
Methodism was raised up to spread Scriptural Holiness through the land by the proclamation of the Evangelical Faith
and declares its unflattering resolve to be true to its Divinely appointed mission. The Doctrine of the Evangelical Faith which Methodism has held from the beginning
and still holds are based upon the Divine revelation recorded in the Holy Scriptures.
The Methodist Church acknowledges this revelation as the supreme rule of Faith and practice.
These Evangelical Doctrines to which the Preachers of the Methodist Church
both Ministers and Laymen are pledged are contained in Wesley's Notes on the New Testament
and the first four volumes of his sermons. The Notes on the New Testament and the 44 Sermons are not intended to impose a system of format
or speculative theology on Methodist preachers,but to set up standards of preaching
and belief which should secure loyalty to the fundamental truths of the Gospel of Redemption
and ensure the continued witness of the Church to the realities
of the christian experience of Salvation. Christ's Ministers in the Church are Stewards in the household of God and Shepherds of His flock.
Some are called and ordained to this sole occupation and have a principal
and directing part in these great duties but they hold no priesthood differing in kind from that
which is common to all the Lord's people and they have no exclusive title
to the preaching of the gospel or the care of souls.
These ministries are shared with them by other to whom also
the spirit divided his severally as He wills.
It is the Universal conviction of the Methodist people that the Office of the Christian Ministry
depends upon the call of God who bestows the gifts of the Spirit
the grace and the fruit which indicate those whom He has chosen. Those whom the Methodist Church recognises as called of God and therefore receives into its Ministry
shall be ordained by the imposition of hands
as expressed of the Church's recognition of the Minister's personal call.
The Methodist Church holds the doctrine of the Priesthood of all believers
and consequently believes that no priesthood exists which belongs exclusiverly to a particular order
or class of men, but in the exercice of its corporate life and worship,
special qualifications for the discharge of special duties are required
and thus the principle of representative selection is recongised. The preachers itinerant and lay are examined tested and approved
before they are authoriised to Minister in holy things.
For the sake of Church Order and not because any priestly virtues inherent
in the office the Ministers of the Methodist Church are set apart by ordination
to the Ministry of the Word and Sacraments.
The Methodist Church recognises two sacraments namely Baptism and the Lord's Supper
as of Divine Appointment and of perpetual obligation of which it is the privilege
and duty of Members of the Methodist Church to avail themselves. 1.MEMBERSHIP: All persons are welcomed into the membership of the Methodist Church in Rwanda,
who sincerely desire to be saved from their sins through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ
and evidence the same in life and conduct
and who seek to have fellowship with Christ Himself and His people
and take up the duties and privileges of membership.
It is the privilege and duty of members to present their children for sacrament of Holy Baptism
and of those received into full membership to avail themselves regulary
of the sacrament of the Lord's Supper.
All members are expected to engage in evangelism
and other forms of Christians service
and to contribute to the funds of the Church in proportion to their means.
2.EVIDENCE OF MEMBERSHIP: If question shall arise whether a particular person is a member of the Methodist Church in Rwanda
the entry of that person's name in a current roll of membership
shall be the accepted evidence of membership.
