CHRISTIAN SCHOOL MINISTRIES (1980)
WHEREAS in the light of the rapid growth of Christian School Ministries (day-care centers, kindergartens, elementary and high schools); and
WHEREAS there is the ever-growing attempt of federal and state governments to infringe upon the rights of churches to establish and maintain these ministries; and
WHEREAS there seems to be an attempt by some government agen- cies to declare that the Christian School Ministries are not an integral part of the church; and
WHEREAS Christian School Ministries in the Church of God are governed under the jurisdiction of the state overseers, the state boards of education, and the local sponsoring churches;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Church of God, meeting in the 58th General Assembly in Dallas, Texas, affirms that the Christian School Ministries (day-care centers, kindergartens, elementary and high schools) are an integral arm of the local Church of God ministry in their organization, function, and goals (58th A., 1980, p. 51).
