Doctrine (81418-LC-¶244.3)

Amend ¶244.3 as follows:
  
Members of the church council or alternative structure shall be persons of genuine Christian character who love the church, affirm its teachings as set forth in the doctrinal standards, are morally disciplined...

Rationale

Affirmation of the church’s teaching is as important as loyalty to the Social Principles and commitment to the mandate of inclusiveness.
