Church government is called church polity.  Polity is where we get the word politics from.  Episcopal government involves a certain type of church structure.  Congregational autonomy is opposed to episcopal polity.

The Fellowship model is about associating and not about being submitted.  You come and go as you please. You do what you want.  If this one make you mad you leave and start your own with its own protocol.

A diocese by definition is a local church made up of multiple congregations  It is pastored by the Bishop.  Each parish or campus church is submitted to the bishop as their senior pastor and each campus church is not the local church but an expression of the local church
