National Association of Christian Ministers

Answering His Call to Advance the Gospel and Unite the Body of Christ.

Please Note: If you are interested in applying for membership, you may do so here.  It is very important that you read every statement below. At the bottom of this page is a link where you may submit your request for membership.

We are a Non-denominational Christian Organization

(also known as inter-denominational)  


Our purpose is to answer the calling of God to advance the gospel, and unite the body of Christ. For these reasons, we choose to look past our denominational backgrounds for sake of the cross; even more the empty tomb.


Before going to the cross, Jesus makes clear His perspective of a Christian testimony that leads others to salvation:


"As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world...I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me(John 17:18-21; ESV).

The Apostle Paul also reminds us:

"Therefore, accept each other in the same way that Christ accepted you. 

He did this to bring glory to God" (Romans 15:7). 


With these passages in mind, we accept membership from Baptist, Methodist, Assembly of God, Pentecostal, Non-denominational backgrounds (and the like which are distinctly Christian).  


However, we find that the faith of Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses to be inconsistent with our fundamental beliefs about the divinity of Christ and His purpose for the church.  Therefore, we do not encourage people holding these views to apply.  While our Christian members may vary about smaller issues such as the administration of communion, baptisms, etc., below is a declaration of faith upon which all of our membership affirms.

Our goal here is not to cover every point of theology proper, but rather to be sure that we share the same understanding and faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  


* We exalt Him as our only hope and source for the forgiveness of sin, and the grace of salvation.  

There is no other "way" (religion, etc.) by which to know the Father, than through the Son (John 14:6).  

Jesus said that His the Door (singular), and any other path is taken by thieves (John 10:8).
