DECISION concerning church polity 

Another Covid-19 dilemma we are facing is how to do business as a congregational polity church without “coming together for “business meetings.” We tried earlier this month but didn’t have enough folks present to vote on business items because our By-Laws state that a certain percentage of us have to be present to vote. So until we are coming together again we are implementing emergency measures to continue to function. Our Ministry Team Leaders represent our entire congregation well and with the help of our Elders we will make a necessary decisions on business matters. For example, we need to formally recognize Ben and Terry Wallace as members of our church, and Ben as our new worship leader. Also we needed a check signer since Evelyn Ross has moved. Those folks have been voted in by our Ministry Team Leaders and I am confident would have been voted in by the entire congregation. If there are matters to be voted on that need a congregational vote we will find a way to do that knowing that will be a very difficult process. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions on this matter. My cell phone number is 928-899-2604.

Press Release 
Last weekend, July 11, 2020, questions were raised about the Oath Keepers, (Yavapai County preparedness team), that meets on our property. Questions and concerns came about because of inappropriate comments that were posted on the Chino Valley Community Facebook page. The comments in question were posted by an individual and not by the Oath Keepers Organization. The individual has been confronted by the Oath Keepers and dealt with.
     As a result of the comment the Oath Keepers Organization has been labeled as racist, white supremacist, and portrayed as inciting violence. We have investigated this matter and discovered that the Oath Keeper’s Organization does not in any way shape or form practice, endorse, or tolerate racial prejudice or violence toward any group. They welcome anybody to view their meetings which are posted on You-Tube, just search for “Yavapai County Preparedness Team” to view their meetings.
     Furthermore, the First Southern Baptist Church (FSBC) of Chino Valley, AZ welcomes all people of all nationalities and does not endorse any form of racial prejudice. FSBC has not and will not tolerate inciting violence towards anyone. While FSBC cannot control the content of any individual’s social media post, we will call out those who mis-represent us and or any party that we are affiliated with.
     We continue to share the love of Jesus Christ and welcome anybody to come and worship the Risen Savior.

Arizona Baptist Children's Services

The expression of value of children in Psalm 127 is a testimony to the character of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Verses 3-5 state " Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate." We echo the call to champion the Love of children that our Lord Jesus has and we encourage you to join with us in prayer  and support of children who are in  the foster care system in Arizona and the families effected by these current times.
