About  Us
A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you find your time browsing our website to be time well spent.

The Laymen Auxiliary is a wonderful gathering of Christian people, who simply desire to strengthen their relationship with God through service to others. We come from different backgrounds, but have together discovered a life changing relationship with His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus came "to serve" and "to give" and verbs should define your life on earth, too. By the mercies of God summarizes all that God has accomplished for the believer in Romans 12:1-12 in justifying the believer, enabling the believer to live a righteous life and being faithful to God.

MEANING OF A LAYMAN

Laymen (noun) a person who is not a member of the clergy; a non-ordained male member of the church. 

The term layman has today come to mean “a person who does not belong to a particular profession or who is not expert in some field. The term layman popped up around the 15th century and within about 100 years the term laywoman also became common. In both cases, outside the non-cleric definition, they first particularly seemed to refer to people who were not specifically accredited in medicine or law, with the definition broadening from there to include any non-expert in a certain field.

The term “laity” has a similar origin as layman, deriving from the Middle English “laite”, which in turn derives from the French word of the same spelling. The French word “laite” comes from the Latin “laicus”, and finally from the Greek “laikos”, meaning “of the people” or “common” (“laos” meaning “people”).

The exact definition of laity varies slightly based on what religious sect one consults, but in general this word just means people who are not ordained, but belong to a certain religious group.

The term laity is here understood to mean all the faithful except those in holy orders and those in the state of religious life specially approved by the Church. These faithful are by baptism made one body with Christ and are constituted among the People of God; they are in their own way made sharers in the priestly, prophetical, and kingly functions of Christ; and they carry out for their own part the mission of the whole Christian people in the Church and in the world.

Interestingly, the word ‘man’ was originally gender neutral, coming to eventually mean the same as the modern day word “person”, though originally was more accurately defined as “the thinker.” In addition to that, the word “men” used to just mean “to think” or “to have a cognitive mind” and was also considered to be completely gender neutral. It wasn’t until about a thousand years ago that the words man and men started to refer to a specific gender (males) and it wasn’t until the late 20th century that it was almost exclusively used to refer to males.

Mission Statement

To equip men for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. 

Purpose

The Laymen of The Consolidated Baptist District Auxiliary purpose is to encourage and promote men to be active in their Churches, their communities, the Convention and the Association; to eliminate the concept that the men's only work in the church is to just pray and count money. To encourage men to move from membership to a relationship with God.
