Ordination may be granted to those involved with a definable primary ministry over an extended period and who devote a significant amount of time to such ministry. The candidate for Ordination should also have demonstrated maturity in character and attitude and be sound in doctrine and Biblical knowledge. The accepted candidate shall be ordained by the laying on of hands by a presbytery composed of ordained ministers (must have been licensed for at least 3 consecutive years).

A person holding the Ordination credentials has been given the authority to do all the work that may be required to promote the Gospel, to preach, publish, teach, and defend the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to perform the essential duties of pastoral and evangelistic ministry, including the sacerdotal function of administering the ordinances of the Church and to solemnize marriage vows in conformity with the laws of the state.
