First Baptist Church of Oxford, MI Article III: Articles of Faith
Section 12. Civil Government
We believe that civil government is of divine appointment for the interests and good order of human society; that magistrates are to be prayed for and conscientiously honored. They are to be obeyed in all things, except in those things contrary to the clear teaching of Scripture and opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the only Lord of the conscience, and the coming King of kings.
