#10 Message on Restoration

The way a person brings another brother or sister to restoration from
sin would be to first confront that brother or sister first. If the person
repents from their sin then you have won them back. However if that
same person decides not to repent the next step is to bring two or
three witnesses to confront the person about their sin. If they Still
choose to not repent of their sins. Then you bring it before the church
were the leaders of the church confront the individual. If the person
does not repent after being confront before the leaders and elders of
the church. Then that person must be excommunicated from the
congregation and consider like a person who has rejected the gospel of
Jesus Christ. If the person at any time repent from their sin, then
theyre restored back into fellowship with the Congregation.
