I, as a member of the Body of Christ, have willingly and joyfully chosen to surrender my will to the will of the Lord Jesus Christ as expressed in the word of God, the Bible. As a member of the ministry team at Island Christian Church:
I willingly choose to refrain from any behavior that would bring dishonor to the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and/or might cause another believer or potential believer to stumble (Romans 14).
I accept the Word of God as the absolute standard for all moral and ethical conduct. I am fully in accord with the Doctrinal Statement of the church. In order to assure a clear and consistent policy, the interpretation of the Scriptures by the Pastors of the church shall be the governing and final authority on matters of conduct for volunteers and employees.
I hereby commit myself to a lifestyle and language that is blameless, even from the appearance of evil.
In order to make the greatest impact for the Kingdom of God, I will voluntarily lay aside any personal habit or practice which, in the opinion of my spiritual leaders, inhibits my ministry for the Lord.
If I should become ensnared by any sin, or have questions about how my conduct and choices relate to this Volunteer Agreement, I will seek the counsel of a Pastor or the leader of my ministry team.
I have read and understood this document.
