Client Ministry Obligations:
By registering our church or parachurch organization with AssessME.org by E-Church Essentials, we freely associate our ministry organization with AssessME.org and that our AssessME.org membership is a privilege and not a contractual right. Furthermore, our ministry organization is in agreement with the following biblical positions, and in good faith will not espouse teachings contrary or inconsistent with these positions:
- The Bible is God’s unique revelation to people. It is the inspired, infallible Word of God, and the supreme and final authority on all matters upon which it teaches. No other writings are vested with such divine authority.
- There is only one God, creator of heaven and earth, who exists eternally as three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each fully God yet each personally distinct from the other.
- All people are created in God’s image and matter deeply to Him. Central to the message of the Bible is that God loves people, and invites them to live in communion with Himself and in community with each other.
- Apart from Jesus Christ, all people are spiritually lost and, because of sin, deserve the judgment of God. However, God gives salvation and eternal life to anyone who trusts in Jesus Christ and in His sacrifice on his or her behalf. Salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort. It is a gift that must be received by humble repentance and faith in Christ and His finished work on the cross.
- Jesus Christ, second Person of the Trinity, was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless human life, willingly took upon Himself all of our sins, died and rose again bodily, and is at the right hand of the Father as our advocate and mediator. Some day, He will return to consummate history and to fulfill the eternal plan of God.
- The Holy Spirit, third Person of the Trinity, convicts the world of sin and draws people to Christ. He also indwells all believers. He is available to empower them to lead Christ-like lives, and gives them spiritual gifts with which to serve the church and reach out to a lost and needy world.
- Death seals the eternal destiny of each person. At the final judgment, unbelievers will be separated from God into condemnation. Believers will be received into God’s loving presence and rewarded for their faithfulness to Him in this life.
- All believers are members of the body of Christ, the one true church universal. Spiritual unity is to be expressed among Christians by acceptance and love of one another across ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, national, generational, gender, and denominational lines.
- The local church is a congregation of believers who gather for worship, prayer, instruction, encouragement, mutual accountability, and community with each other. Through it, believers invest time, energy, and resources to fulfill the Great Commission — reaching lost people and growing them into fully devoted followers of Christ.
This statement reflects a contemporary summary of the central doctrines in the Bible, which are also presented in the historic creeds of the Christian church.
We understand that our ministry organization may lose its right to participate in AssessME.org if it consistently advocates theological or doctrinal positions contrary or inconsistent with the above doctrinal statement, uses vulgar language or promotes sexually explicit and/or immoral acts and that such actions shall be judged by the clear standards of the Bible, not by societal norms. I further understand that my ministry organization may also lose my membership privileges if it threatens, harms, or harasses any member of the E-Church Essentials/AssessME.org network. Our ministry organization further agrees that if documented evidence of such behavior exists, and that as a result, our ministry organization should forfeit our membership rights, our ministry organization and its members agree to relinquish any right to financial reimbursement and agree to not hold E-Church Essentials, LLC, AssessME.org, nor its representatives legally or civilly liable.
