Why do you require a financial commitment? It is a fundamental principle found in the Word of God. "give and it will be given unto you" (Luke 6:38) What you release returns "good measure pressed down shaken together and running over" (Luke 6:38). The Word of God never returns void but accomplishes what it was sent forth to do (Isa 55:11) and as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest (Gen 8:22). We as leaders will never experience the full blessing of the Lord until we stop thinking inward and start thinking outward.
Are you a name it claim it ministry? We are a FAITH ministry. We believe scripture found in the Holy Bible as inerrant. What we do believe is that the Words of Jesus are truth "Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, Be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them." (Mark 11:22-24). We believe that whatever things you ask in faith when you pray, "you will have them."
Are you a "Prosperity Gospel" ministry? "remember the Lord your God for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth." (Dut 8:18); "The blessing of the Lord makes one rich and He adds no sorrow with it" (Prov 10:22). We Believe the Bible will allow believes to experience prosperity or poverty, you choose which you will have.
How long does it take? The average time from start to finish is about 120 days. But part of the process of Christian development is patience. James 1:3-4
How rigorous is the process? We don't grant spiritual authority, we do take the call of God very seriously. in the past approximately 75% of applications were approved.
Can I be ordained by another organization & 2 Timothy 4:5? No. Ordination is reserved to God and Him alone, 2 Timothy 4:5 acknowledges that appointment, and provides accountability. All affiliates agree to singularly support a common leadership.
Can we hold an affiliation with another organization & 2 Timothy 4:5? No. Each organization or denomination has differing purposes, mission, and vision. Therefore to ensure we are actively pursuing a common goal we do not allow this. There is noting that would restrict a CMA affiliate from working together with an organization of like faith to accomplish the Great Commission.
How do I receive my ordination? Your ordination credentials will be sent to you; as they are representative of what God has done not what man will do. Or they can be delivered and presented in a regular weekly service. For more information contact the ministry.
Will I receive financial support once my ordination approved? No. in fact we discourage applicants from considering a potential financial benefit as a reason for applying. We encourage all men to stand in faith believing that God will supply all their needs.
Can an ordained minister request support? Yes. However the Overseers take many factor into consideration including time, faithful commitment and prayerful guidance.
Will a minister of 2 Timothy 4:5 visit our ministry/church? It depends. We entertain and consider many invitations, both domestic and foreign from affiliates. Over the years we have endeavored to meet as many affiliates in person as we can. The overseers prayerfully consider where and when to travel, taking into consideration factors like financial considerations, impact and timing.
