Doctrinal Protection Policy - Adopted by CEF International Board of Trustees, May 6, 2002, Child Evangelism Fellowship® continues in its commitment to its Statement of Faith, which embodies the non-negotiable and historic beliefs of evangelical Christians. Within the community of evangelical believers, various distinctives exist which do not prevent our fellowship in the Lord and our effectiveness as child evangelists. We, therefore, resolve that CEF® workers are qualified by their unreserved commitment to CEF’s Statement of Faith and their further commitment in all CEF activities to refrain from teaching or otherwise advocating doctrinal distinctives either contrary to or in addition to the Statement of Faith. Recognizing the spiritual need of boys and girls in our community and around the world, I would like to assist in the work of Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF). I understand that CEF is without specific denominational affiliation, and have read the Statement of Faith and CEF Doctrinal Protection Policy. In becoming a coworker with CEF, and in order to protect the ministry, I agree not to propagate or practice in CEF ministries any distinctive or controversial doctrines, methods and practices that would go beyond the CEF Statement of Faith and the approved CEF curriculum. These would include but not be limited to such things as modes of baptism, speaking in tongues, interpretation of Scripture by experience, healing on demand, etc. I understand that anyone who does not adhere to this agreement cannot serve with CEF as paid staff or volunteer.
In teaching Bible lessons in core CEF programs I will use exclusively materials approved by CEF.
In offering my services I trust the Lord to make me a faithful servant, and should problems arise between CEF and me that cannot be fully reconciled, I will quietly withdraw to preserve the harmony essential to having an effective Christian witness. By signing below, I indicate: My agreement with the Statement of Faith, and that I will abide by the above Worker’s Compliance Agreement and that I will abide by the policies of CEF as long as I am actively involved. (Only applicable in the USA): I have reviewed the Protecting Today’s Child presentation (866-878-4182 or www.cefonline.com/childprotection) in the last 12 months.To read an overview of all policies, see www.cefonline.com/usaorgmanualTo see a complete copy of all policies, contact your director.
The Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF®) USA Child Protection Policy states, “Even when ministry to children is not taking place, an additional adult or minor must be present when two workers are together and one is a minor unless the minor’s parent or guardian has signed a waiver.” I understand that there may be occasions when my child may be traveling from location to location and/or serving in the company of only one adult of legal age.Therefore, I, the parent or legal guardian of a minor, hereby waive the above requirement for this minor and give my permission for him/her to travel and serve with his/her teammate, participating in the ministries of Child Evangelism Fellowship, without the presence of an additional adult or minor.
