Rev. Dr. C. Joseph Fifer
Basic Membership Requirements
Accountable each member is required to maintain current and up-to-date records with “Home Office” that include contact information, current ministry activity, and education. It is the member’s responsibility to ensure accurate changes are made in a timely manner, with an annual records “audit” completed annually whether changes were made or not.
Active each member is required to actively support the Fellowship, both corporately and on a personal level. This is accomplished through communicating – thought, studied opinion, encouragement, ideas, activities, and prayers. We do this through our Social Media Sites maintained on Facebook.com: UNTCI’s (our church and Fellowship) main page https://www.facebook.com/untci & TECU’s (our seminary) main page https://www.facebook.com/tecu.alumni/ ; Praying – through our Network of Prayer Warriors closed / private group https://www.facebook.com/groups/UNTCINetwordOfPrayerWarriors/ we pray for one another and ask for prayer so that the entire community is lifted, and supported Commenting – on the various “news” and “informational” posts that are made to the Fellowship via our website www.untci.org; Participating – by viewing, commenting, even sharing our Live Streaming events; Fellowship – either by internet or in person, if you find yourself in the area of one of your fellow Ekklesia stop in, take an interest, come together under God for the good of His Fellowship and Church.
Benevolent generosity and mercy are the outward signs of the true and faithful love of a Christian. This ministry is completely dependent upon the Grace, Love, and Providence of our God, and therefore by extension, you, the member. We rely wholly on Him, and the Love of His Faithful here in this ministry in order to provide what we are called to provide for His that are called into mission, and ministry in the places they are outside the influence of the mainline church, independent and “free indeed”. Our calling is to “equip the called” and cover them by the church in order they may work in the world. Ordained members of this ministry, in order to maintain their “Rostered” and “In Good Standing” credentials must be benevolent on a regular basis. Regular or “lay” membership, which allows access to the community, support, and educational programs, requires benevolence at least annually.
Remember, we are “Free Indeed” so that we can do more… this is your ministry let’s thrive not just survive!
