"Where the Teaching and the Holy Spirit meets Your Call in Ministry"

Ordination Requirements


If you have come to be ordained so you may officiate at weddings or funerals ONLY we will not ordain you for that purpose. We have a referral link here that will. If you came here because you have a calling then please keep reading. Or...

 

If you have come to this sight as a "Christian" in response to a TRUE calling of our Lord Jesus Christ to become ordained to preach the Gospels of Jesus Christ, we welcome you. Please continue.


As an ordained "Christian" minister we require that you be called by our Christian Lord. We may ordain you according to the following:

Ephesians 4:11-13 (NIV)

11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

If your application is approved you will be able to start up your own church, wedding ministry, and perhaps much more. We require that anyone with His calling must believe our "Statement of Faith"

Please Read
Statement of Faith

 

We have a reproductive vision to send out trained ministers to establish "Christian" Churches and "Christian" Ministries in all Nations.

This sets the scene for the words of the risen Jesus that are traditionally known as the

"Great Commission"

The text appears in Matthew 28:18b-20:

"All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age."

It is possible to understand the Great Commission as a summary of Matthew's Gospel taken as a whole (and indeed all the Gospels). Jesus whose story has been told throughout the Gospel now appears as the risen Lord who is worthy of homage and even worship. As the glorious Son of Man (see Daniel 7), the risen Jesus declares that all power in heaven and on earth has been given to Him. As the great authoritative Teacher, the risen Jesus commissions His closest followers to carry on his mission of teaching. As the Son of God, the risen Jesus directs that all nations be baptized in His name. And as "Emmanuel" or "God with us" (see Matt 1:22-23), the risen Jesus promises to accompany his followers until the end of the present age. Likewise, the disciples who had been repeatedly characterized by Matthew as having only a "little faith" now receive their commission to teach "all nations" and not simply their fellow Jews ("the lost sheep of the house of Israel," see Matt 10:5). It is likely that these words presented an especially timely challenge to Matthew's largely Jewish Christian community around A.D. 90 to expand their own vision beyond those who were Jews by birth and so to include non-Jews in their mission.
