ARTICLE III – FAITH, DISSOLUTION, PURPOSES and OBJECTIVES
SECTION 1: FAITH and DISSOLUTION
We affirm that the Holy Bible is the inspired infallible Word of God and the New
Testament is the basis for our beliefs and practices of New Home and Durham
Missionary Baptist Association. We are traditionally a Baptist Association, which
subscribes to the Word of God and Bylaws. We as members of this Association are
led by the Holy Spirit to interpret and spread teachings of the Bible. We voluntarily
band ourselves together as one body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ
personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to the lost humanity.
This Association is not organized, nor shall operate for monetary gain or profit, and it
does not contemplate the distribution of gains, profits, or dividends to its members
and is organized solely for non-profit purposes. The property, assets, profits and net
income of this association are permanently dedicated to charitable, educational and
religious purposes and no part of the profits or net income of this Association shall
ever become beneficial to any individual.
Upon the dissolution of this Association, its assets remaining after payments or
provision of payment of all debts and liabilities of this Association shall be distributed
to the foundation churches.
