Church by-laws are the written guidelines or documents that govern how the church operates on a day-to-day basis. Because they are the documents which govern the church, they should include things such as the day to day operational requirements, things on how to operate in terms of elections, if there are elections, how to set a budget, and anything that affects the operations of the church.

Further, because the church enjoys wide autonomy, and its relationship with the government and the protection is provided by the constitution, a church should set out in its by-laws certain specific scriptural, induction decisions the church has made so that if there is a conflict between the secular position and the church position, the bylaws clearly articulate the church’s beliefs, doctrines and values.
