Ordination Certificate      

Upon your request we will send to you your Certificate of Ordination and License to Preach which is delivered by Electronic Mail in a .pdf format. We also offer hand signed documents and you can find details on these ordination packages in our CHURCH STORE . In most cases the Ordination Certificate is all you will need to start your Ministry. Although your actual ordination is free, but we ask that you make a small donation to help us handle the cost of the processing and recordkeeping.

I have often been asked how can we ordain someone that has not gone through the regiment of Graduating from Seminary. Well I will answer that question with this following Biblical Quote.

"Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you."
KJV - John 15:16

My personal clarification of that answer is, "You have not been ordained by us, you have been ordained by God. We simply process the paperwork."  We have faith in your Biblical calling and faith in your sincerity of your request. It was on those principals that the Church of Faith was born. We decided to change the world, and we are glad that you have chosen to be a part of that.

Check out the Legal Ruling regarding Mail-Order Ordinations

The key to beginning your own ministry or Wedding Officiate business starts with your ordination. The process of ordination through the Church of Faith is simple and quick, usually within a couple of days you will receive your handsome Certificate of Ordination which is suitable for framing. We believe that the best way to spread Christian Faith is by making it easy for the believers to be ordained.

It is our belief that ordination is a life changing experience, that brings new meaning, as well as, deep personal satisfaction.

As an ordained minister you have the legal authority to perform Christian services. You can start a church or a ministry, and have the full authority to do all the same things that clergy or ministers ordained by the main stream religions can do. Or you can open a chartered church of the Church of Faith.

Our Clergy Guidebook is a vast resource of the many different types of things that you can do as a legally ordained minister.

We will ordain people from all walks of life. You can be a a doctor, a lawyer, or an Indian chief, You can be a white color executive or a blue collar worker. The only requirement is that you make the request with sincerity in your heart. Then we make ordination a simple process.

After your ordination it is our hope that you will exercise your right to religious freedom as protected the First Amendment to the Constitution:

Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

We then hope that you will be inspired to do great works of Christian Faith. Although our Founder is the Pastor of a Christian based non denominational church the Church of Faith was founded on the principal that we must do "that which is right". This being said we do not restrict you in your religious practices after your ordination, and grant to you the right to perform such religious services as the rites of marriage and baptism. Your ordination also allows you to use such titles as Reverend, Minister, Pastor, Deacon, Bishop, Chaplain, Missionary, Preacher, Elder, or Cardinal just to name a few. These are all formal titles that allow you to reverence and respect afforded to ministers of religious organizations.

As an ordained Clergy you will find that there are many opportunities open up to you. In the United States as well as many other countries around the world you will be allowed to perform legal wedding ceremonies (although you must check with the local authorities before performing such services). This is a very rewarding section of the ministry. We have performed many weddings and continue to even today. Wedding Ministers are becoming more and more popular. Whether you do weddings full time or part time, this opportunity alone gives you a chance to earn extra money to support yourself, your family, and your ministry. Doing weddings can be easy and satisfying. Many couples are simply looking for a short ceremony lasting only a few minutes, while others just want the flexibility to be married in alternative sites like in their own home or favorite park.

As you go through the vast information on this website you will realize that we have prepared this site as a resource to help our newly ordained ministers succeed in any area of ministry that they may choose. But when you are just starting out we recommend that you consider one of our clergy packages. These packages combine some of the finest materials grouped together and they are available for a reasonable offering.

It is only by the kindness and generosity of people like yourself that we are able to continue to offer such packages, and also to continue on with the extensive work of our own ministry as we do. But, if you are not able to make the suggested offering we will work with individuals on a case by case basis and offer a wallet card Certificate of Ordination to confirm your ordination.

Our ministry is a Christian nondenominational ministry that offers the opportunity to be ordained to all those individuals seeking ordination as long as they are of legal age. Upon receipt of your REQUEST for ORDINATION We start the process for you. This application is then reviewed by our staff and upon approval, your credential are sent on their way. We forward you an email copy free of charge (but these are not the same high quality as those that come in your ordination package, they do not have actual signatures, and the seal is not embossed with the official seal of the church.

The church does reserve the right to suspend or revoke the ordination of any minister that is using his or her credential in a manner not consistent with the Church of Faith - Ministerial Ethics Statement as subscribed to during the application process.

Once your ordination has been registered in the church records you are fully ordained and able to begin performing the work of you Christian Ministry. Your ordination is for life (unless it is suspended or revoked as detailed in the previous paragraph). Church of Faith does not ask for dues or renewal fees each year like other ministries do to maintain your ordination.

Please take a few moments to review the material in this website and see the vast resources that we have provided for your success.
