Any additional remarks?





I Pledge: “I will humbly and sincerely work for the Lord and I will do my best to uphold the high standard of the ministry that God requires from His servants. I realize that the greatest sermon I will ever minister will not be behind the pulpit, but in everyday circumstances. I will conduct my personal relationships and financial affairs in such a way as to not bring a reproach upon the ministry, or most of all, my Lord and Saviour whom I love and to whom I have presented my body a living sacrifice. I understand that this is a nondenominational fellowship and all ministers may not agree on all points of doctrine. I will endeavor to keep the unity of the faith, believing that in the essentials we must have unity, in non-essentials liberty, and in all things charity.”

At this time, I know of no Scriptural reason that would bar me from the ministry. By submitting this form, I acknowledge that all the enclosed information is true. I realize that if any of the information I have submitted is false, I will be immediately disqualified. If I have already received E.M.A. ministerial credentials, they will be terminated.

BY CLICKING THE SUBMIT BUTTON BELOW I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ALL OF THE ABOVE IS TRUE.
Evangelistic Messengers Association
Ennis, Texas U.S.A.
