Purpose of the Church Order

In accordance with the apostolic injunction (1 Cor. 14: 40) that in the Church of Christ all things are to be done decently and in order, the Reformed Churches of New Zealand, in this Church Order, regulate their organisation and activities, so that they may fulfil their calling according to the Scriptures and the Reformed Confessions.
The main subjects treated in this Order are the Church’s Offices, Assemblies, Worship, and Discipline.
