Christ's Church Fellowship is Egalitarian: Both Spirit-filled Men and Women may apply to become a minister.
God is "no respecter of persons".
There are numerous examples of both men and women serving the Lord throughout Christian History.
Christ's Church Fellowship will not ordain anyone who is committing any form of sexual immorality.
Jesus said: "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God!" Matthew 5:8.
Christian Ministers are held to a very high standard by Our Father God, and by the Public that we minister to!
Sexual Purity is an absolute necessity for the Christian Minister!
Those who have been married multiple times will need to Biblically account for those marriages.
CCFI Ministerial Association
Once a person is an Ordained Minister, they are automatically part of the CCFI Ministers Association.
Once a year, a Report of the Ministry will be needed from each Minister.....
We want to hear all the excellent work you are doing to serve the Lord Jesus and your local community.
Also, we ask that the Ministers help to support their Fellowship by either a monthly donation, or a yearly donation.
As it states in the New Testament Scriptures:
"Each (person) should give what (s)he has decided to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion."
2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV
The main reason for contributing is to keep our school,
Cane Ridge Ministers Academy & Seminary as a Degree-Granting School for the benefit of our Ministers.
Thank you for being "a cheerful giver."
May God Bless you and your family!!
