West Milford, NJ asked in Business Formation for New Jersey

Q: I am involved with helping to start a non-denominational church in NJ. Which statues would apply to our church?

Specifically, I am looking for what is required in regards to officers and trustees. I am not sure if Title 15a or Title 16 applies. If Title 16 applies, does that mean no provisions from Title 15a apply? If Title 16 applies, which section is applicable to my church as a non-denominational church?
