CENTER OF DELIVERANCE LEADERSHIP COVENANT
In order to bring all into the unity of the faith, perfect the saints, to fulfill the vision and mission of our church, we ordain and establish this Leadership Covenant for the Center of Deliverance Church (C.O.D.).
The Core of Our Leadership Covenant
We willfully and respectfully enter into a covenant with one another to always be governed by the fundamental principles of biblical Integrity, Accountability, The Spirit of Excellence and Servant hood. These four principles form the core of our Leadership Covenant.
Integrity is a vital element of our interactions and fundamental to all of our activities. We pledge to say and speak only those things given to us by God, for the edification of the body of Christ (See John 12:49). We will be completely and compassionately honest in our communications and interactions, and to at all times, conduct ourselves in the integrity of God (See Matthew 5:37 and Ephesians 4:29).
Accountability is demanded at every level at Center Of Deliverance. We accept this obligation as intrinsic to our duty to God our Father, and we pledge to always be transparent to God and to those we serve, (See Matthew 12:36, Romans 14:12, I Corinthians 4:1 and Philippians 4:5)
The Spirit of Excellence is one of the principal hallmarks at Center Of Deliverance. We pledge to do everything we do as unto the Lord, utilizing and relying on the distilled wisdom of God for the execution of our duties and righteous judgment, (See I Corinthians 3:10, Colossians 3:23 and Isaiah 11:2-5).
Servant Hood is the cornerstone of our interactions with others, whether publicly or behind the scenes. Because we minister unto the sons and daughters of the most High God, our mission is sacred. Therefore, we pledge to honor, highly esteem and respect those we serve. We are your servants, (See Mark 10:42-45, Colossians 4:12-13 and Philippians 2:7-8).
Our commitment to biblical Integrity, Accountability, The Spirit of Excellence and Servant Hood fosters open lines of communication between God and those we serve. It stimulates spiritual strength among Believers, establishes consistency within the framework of Center of Deliverance; enhancing our ability to make proper decisions and usher in the Spirit of liberty.
