ARTICLE IV: Corporate Membership
Section 1. Corporate Members. The Corporation shall have no members apart from the elders. The elders may confer and revoke at their discretion some or all of the rights of a corporate member upon any person or persons who are not actually corporate members and who do not have the right to vote for the election of officers or on a disposition of substantially all of the assets of the Corporation or on a merger or on a dissolution or on changes to this constitution, but no such person shall be a corporate member.
Section 2. Members of the Fellowship. Nothing contained in Section 1 of this Article shall be construed to limit the right of the Corporation to refer to persons associated with it as “members,” even though such persons are not corporate members and no such reference in or outside of this constitution shall constitute anyone other than the elders as being a corporate member. All rights that would otherwise vest in the members shall vest in the elders. Those admitted to church membership do not constitute a legislative body, nor do they constitute members in the Corporation and they cannot vote, pass resolutions binding upon the Corporation, nor shall they have any equity in the real property of the Corporation, or rights to vote on its disposal. Said property of the Corporation is dedicated to religious and charitable purposes.
