PBF is a congregational, self-governing church under the headship of Jesus Christ and the leadership of elders. Since both Jesus and Paul appealled to the congregation as the final authority on maters of discipline, we structure ourselves congregationally (Matt. 18:15-20; 1 Cor. 5). The congregation votes on its leadership, admits and dismisses members and stands accountable to God for its public teaching and preaching.
We strive to involve ourselves in each other's lives, holding regular members meetings and living in fellowship together as an expression of our bonds of peace (Eph. 4:3).
