The Book of Discipline 2017 edition: Get your copy today!

Feb 2018    

The 2017 edition of The Book of Discipline (BOD) of The Methodist Church in Singapore (MCS) has been published. It is the rule-book of the denomination and guides our Methodist ministers and laypersons as they carry out their duties in our local churches, the Annual Conferences, and at the General Conference.

The BOD 2017 edition incorporates all the amendments made by the General Conference in 2016 and 2017, and is published by the Discipline Revision Commission of the MCS.

The original BOD was first published in 1784 by the Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States of America. The MCS’ BOD has been published once every four years since we achieved autonomy in 1968.

The 464-page BOD 2017 edition contains the laws and doctrines of the MCS and includes our Constitution, Doctrinal Statements and General Rules, Social Principles, and the organisational rules for the Church in Singapore at all levels.

In his Episcopal Foreword in the BOD 2017 edition, Bishop Dr Chong Chin Chung wrote, “It is crucial for the BOD to be reviewed continuously so that the Church’s work is not disadvantaged by its sometimes slow awakening to new technologies, which could prove to be good servants but also demanding masters.”

“We rejoice over the Discipline Revision Commission that gathers very regularly to review the BOD, and assists us to govern ourselves right and well. I believe that the BOD will serve not only The Methodist Church in Singapore, but will also be useful as a reference for the many conferences in the region.”

The BOD 2017 edition is priced at $20 per copy. You can purchase your copy at the Administration Office of the MCS, located in the Methodist Centre at 70 Barker Road. You may also reach the office at 6478-4786 for more information.
