    Not sure if this is the correct forum, as this is not an issue for debate - only seeking info and opinion.

    Currently our church only using the BF&M as our doctrine statement.

    Other than what is in the BF&M, what other areas should be covered - what should not be listed in the Doctrine Statement?

    Many Bible churches just follow the ten sections of theology. Some now have info on tongues/gifts (can be worked into the Holy Spirit section), as well as a strong section on inspiration.

    Lawyers stress sex offender policy/church discipline policy but they usually go into the constitution.

    I've seen statements so short and sweet that most anyone could agree and I helped form one that was about ten pages long so it is kind of open to the church/people involved and what they feel is needed.
