QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF AND THAT OF YOUR MATE
WHAT DOES IT TAKES TO BE A MINISTER OF GOD?
by Chaplain Jimmie W. Warren
Being called as a Minister is a Holy calling from God and requires profound selflessness , sacrifice and love for all mankind. You must submit yourself in total surrender to Jesus Christ and bear fruit of that relationship with him. This will require the highest degree of honesty, integrity, humility and unconditional love for all others.Pray for our enemies to be delivered.
As chosen vessels you must be willing to stand alone in defense of the poor and destitute sinners of this world, showing no respect for persons because of wealth, education, religious stature, or other power.
Being a minister is no ordinary calling, for you truly are the salt of the earth and the light of Christ in a dark and dying world. Sincerity is a MUST! All who know you must know your sincerity as a minister of Jesus Christ .You might have to give up father, mother, brother, sister, children, and even you mate to go forth with the gospel of Yeshua Messiah–Jesus Christ!

In the Joy of Salvation we freely Fellowship and worship in Christian Unity. We believe in the Freedom of Choice, being individually responsible before God for our lives, thoughts, and actions. Christians hold various views based upon their spiritual gifts, abilities to understand scriptures, past teachings, and national origins. We therefore advocate Freedom of Religion, seeking answers through study, prayer, and guidance by the Holy Spirit.
Having, great love and admiration for each other without respect for wealth, race, gender, age or social status. We are committed to seeking the will of God in our lives and faithfully dedicating our life to the service of Jesus Christ that we may be helpers in the Joy of Salvation and the freedom in Christ.
Simple Salvation Church of God is a non-denominational Protestant faith association of Christians supporting each other in edification, fellowship and worship. Our goal is to fellowship and worship in unity of Christian faith to discharge our duties to the body of Christ.
Simple Salvation Church of God uses the Internet as our primary tool for evangelism and Christian Fellowship, we have over 70 ordained men and women to proclaim the Gospel of Salvation through Jesus Christ as a witness to all nations. We exist in our ministry calling to assist others in their Christian callings through, inspiration, teachings, and recognition by training and ordination and are committed to spreading the gospel to all nations in the establishment of local ministries.
Giving offerings and gifts to the church.
Our church does not claim Tax Exempt status even though we as a Church are exempt from taxation per the U.S. constitution as a free-church, like our forefathers before us!.
Therefore any contributions given to the church are not tax-deductible.501a of the tax code
(7) As you go, make this proclamation: 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand. (8) Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons. Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give. (9) Do not take gold or silver or copper for your belts; (10) no sack for the journey, or a second tunic, or sandals, or walking stick. The laborer deserves his keep. (NAB)
2 Corinthians 9:7
(7) Let each man give according as he has determined in his heart; not grudgingly, or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver.(NAB)
(1) Be careful that you don't do your charitable giving before men, to be seen by them, or else you have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. (2) Therefore when you do merciful deeds, don't sound a trumpet before yourself, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may get glory from men. Most assuredly I tell you, they have received their reward. (3) But when you do merciful deeds, don't let your left hand know what your right hand does, (4) so that your merciful deeds may be in secret, then your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. (NAB)
All of humanity has been called by the Gospel unto salvation and are given gifts of the spirit to produce good fruit.( John 15:16) But God has also called and foreordained some for to tend to the needs of the flock, and to boldly proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world .
Our Independent Ministers are Ordained for life, however there are reasons why a independent Minister could be dismissed.
1. Lying on their Ordination request application
2.Found to be preaching doctrine and beliefs contrary to THE BIBLE Doctrines and beliefs
3. Failing to notify us of change of home address and or email address
4. Refusing to allow their name, state address, and Ordination number to be posted on our web page .
5. Using any false names on your application for ordination, other then your true birth name.
6. Caught trying to just get a tax exemption to get out of paying their fair taxes!
All applicants for ordination must be 18 years of age or older, and be of the Christian Faith, have been saved, called of God, and received water baptism.
Do not take upon yourself this calling if you are just playing religion and are not serious about the sacrifices God will require of you.This is very serious indeed, for who he has given much, much will be expected.
We will ordain all Protestant Christian applicants without respect to race, gender, nationality, or past and forgiven sins. This does not mean we will ordain practicing homosexual or Felon applicants without them first forsaking their sins and coming to the place of humble repentance before Christ. This ministry is a ministry of love, who loves the sinners, but will not love the sin.
Every nation, state, or locality has varying laws regarding certain degrees of the ministry. It is the full responsibility of every ordained minister to know and follow the laws in their region. It would be totally impossible for us to know the laws of every region in the world, or to monitor the actions of very ordained minister. The legal responsibility of every ordained minister lays solely upon themselves who shall hold the Simple Salvation Church of God harmless as a result their operation, actions, practices, beliefs, and calling.
Persons ordained by Simple Salvation Church of God are independent ministers, and in no way represent this church, or does the church represent the newly ordained ministers. We exist as independent entities practicing freedom of religion in our perspective callings from the Lord Jesus Christ. ALL our Independent Ministers ,Pastors Chaplains Evangelists or other entities are practicing their freedom of religion rights in our perspective callings from YESHUA/ JESUS
Countries outside the United States may have varying laws regarding the Officiating of certain Ceremonies and rites. However in the USA Ministers are only required to present credentials or other paperwork if they are going to officiate a marriage ceremony. But to be a minister and Officiate any other ceremony does not require registration as far as we are aware. However it is your professional responsibility to know the restrictions governing you region of the state you live in or when traveling the world.
Is Online Ordination Legitimate?
The Constitution of the United States guarantees our right to Freedom of Religion?
ANSWER ; Yes, online/Email Ordinations is every bit as much legit as any other Christian church ordination. Simple Salvation Church of God does ordain anyone online and by mail.
Ordination applications are taken online or by mail and a special prayer service is held for the applicant in his or her absence, at this time we lay hands upon the applicants Official documents and pray for God's blessings upon each applicant. After the blessing service the applicants name and address is entered into our Official Church records as an Ordained Minister.
Simple Salvation Church of God is a Protestant non-denominational Christ-centered ministry, that promotes unity in faith and fellowship in the joy of Salvation and the reconciliation of all back to God! This is a membership laboring in Love for all humanity of the World to be saved.
Some of our members are plain ordinary people without any ministerial training having nothing more than a calling from the Lord and the courage to act in faith in response to their callings.
All members of the this church are members of respected Protestant mainstream Christianity.
Many scoffers doubted the legitimacy of Jesus Christ, and his misfit group of followers, which today has grown to a worldwide body of believers known as Christianity. The disciples for the most part were poor uneducated men and women totally unworthy of being chosen by the Lord to spread Christianity worldwide.
The Pharisees and Sadducees blinded by their Religious educated self-righteousness passed judgment on Christ and his followers as foolishness then eventually killed all of them by their laws and doctrines. Who knows what they will do today?
