According to Article IV Section 2 of the Grace for Dover bylaws, each candidate for election to the Board of Directors must affirm before the Board of Directors his or her concurrence with the Statement of Faith of the corporation, must be a member or regular attendee in good standing of a local evangelical church, must profess by credible testimony his or her faith in Jesus Christ, and demonstrate good Christian character.
Our Statement of Faith includes only those truths upon which all true Christians agree. It concerns the Person and Work of Jesus Christ (the Gospel) as revealed in Scripture. It is the faith once delivered to the saints (Jude 2, Eph. 4:5) which distinguishes believers from non-believers. There are many other precious truths taught in the Bible over which godly men have differed in understanding. Therefore, this is not a statement of all that is important to believe, but of all that is essential to believe for Christian fellowship and unity (Rom. 15:7).
