Our Values in Ministry

Our Values in Ministry

The following values represent the essence and personality of the National Association of Christian Ministers.  They are the standards by which our culture and unity are kept.  Please make careful note of them.  We will not compromise our statement of faith or ministry values.

  • We value God’s calling of both men and women to ordained ministry (Mat. 28:18-20; Acts 2:17; Gal. 3:28).
  • We value the advancement of the Gospel of Christ for the establishment of salvation, forgiveness, and the perpetuation of Christianity (Mat. 28:18-20).
  • We value the pursuit of unity (at the foot of the cross) among brothers and sisters in the Christian faith (Eph. 4:13).
  • We value the independence of ministers so that they may follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in the direction and government of their ministries (Act. 8:29; 10:19; 11:12; 13:2-4; 16:6-7; 20:22, 21:4).
  • We value leadership that duplicates our Lord’s servant heart (Mat. 20:27; John 13:14).
  • We value fellowship among ministers for the sake of strength, encouragement, edification, prayer, and support (Rom.14:19; 1 Thes. 5:11; Eph. 2:21-22; Php. 4:8).
