Certification / Ordination
We encourage our pastors and leaders to become credentialed.
The rationale for and benefits of credentialing are the following:
A. recognition of God’s calling to and gifting for vocational ministry,
B. interdependency between the local church, the district and the national office, to ensure a
commitment to and alignment of beliefs (Statement of Faith) and ethos,
C. accountability to the local church and to the denomination, both doctrinally and morally,
D. development educationally and personally, and
E. confirmed legal status by the IRS (through EFCA).
