This project sought to develop a church discipline strategy for Verbena Baptist

Church, in Verbena, Alabama. Chapter 1 presents the context of ministry at Verbena

Baptist and identifies the goals and means of measurement. Chapter 2 provides exegesis

of five passages of Scripture (Gen 3:1-13; Num 21:4-9; Matt 18:15-18; Gal 6:1-5; and

Heb 12:5-11) to show that every Christian fellowship should embrace the doctrine of

church discipline. Chapter 3 presents the historical practice of church discipline in

contrast to the present, and how vital aspects of church life are affected by its function.

Chapter 4 describes the project implementation and further analyzes the project’s

context, cultivating attitudes toward the project and preparation for a church discipline

policy. Chapter 5 evaluates the effectiveness of the project based on completion of the

specified goals. Ultimately, this project seeks to equip Verbena Baptist Church with the

tools and confidence for the furtherance of its mission in Christ Jesus.
