INFORMATION

Ministerial credentials issued by an organization are not substitutes for the calling, the equipping or the anointing which comes from God. All believers have a holy calling to serve God with their entire lives, to live lives that are above reproach, and to share the Gospel with others.  Ministerial credentials, however, pertain to that segment or group of believers who have been entrusted with certain duties. The issuing of credentials recognizes that a person has been called, equipped and anointed by God to serve Him in a certain capacity.

CREDENTIALS

Ministerial credentials are renewable on a yearly basis so that those holding credentials are those who are in active ministry.  There is simply no need for a person to have credentials who is not active in ministry. When an individual ceases to minister in a qualifying capacity they are required to return their credentials to Impacting Canada Ministries. The inactive member may request that their credentials be reactivated as soon as they are in a qualifying position.

LICENSED &

ORDAINED MINISTER

Licensed and ordained is full accreditation and is available to those who are a recognized minister of the Gospel in the operation of a church or ministry. They are responsible for the membership of such that includes regular preaching and teaching; and who are conducting such sacerdotal duties as water baptism, communion, weddings and funerals. The nature of their work causes them to be recognized by civil authorities.

//Have a recognizable ministerial call on their life

//Are active in a recognized ministry for at least two years

//Conduct themselves according to 1 Timothy 3:2-7

1Tim 3:2-7 – A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; Not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous. One who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
