Questionnaire 1

This is the first questionnaire which the ministry sends to churches who wish to organize according to New Testament church doctrine under Christ and Christ alone. Questionnaire 1 is designed to cover all the basic facts concerning the present situation of the church which must be considered before the church establishes the common law trust relationship. Some matters covered include:

  • The present organization of the church. Is the church incorporated? Has the church chosen to apply for and receive 501(c)(3) tax exempt status? Etc.
  • Does the church or church corporation hold real estate? If so, how is the title held?
  • The earmarks of a New Testament church.
  • Etc.

Jerald Finney, a Christian Lawyer, having received this ministry in the Lord, explains how a church in America can remain under the Lord Jesus Christ and Him only. "As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen" (1 Peter 4:10-11; See also, Ephesians 4::1-16 and 1 Corinthians 12:1-25). "Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it" (Colossians 4:17). "And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church" (Ephesians 1.22; See also, e.g. Colossians 1:18).
