Association of
Evangelical Clergy

  Welcome to the online home of the
Association of Evangelical Clergy
 

MISSION OF THE AEC

Our mission is to provide a home for evangelical Christians. Many churches have deviated from Biblical truths about God, Jesus and the Bible. The gender of God is debated; the divinity of Jesus is questioned and the authority of the Bible is challenged.

The Associaation of Evangelical Clergy provides Administrative and Spiritual leadership for the Church through the Senior Presiding Pastor & Archbishop, The General Pastor & Bishop, The Board of Elders (Ruling Elder & Bishop, 10 to 15), and The Regional Presiding Pastor & Superintendent.

 STATEMENT OF FAITH

ASSOCIATION OF EVANGELICAL CLERGY

 We Believe...
...there is one God eternally existing and manifesting Himself to us in three persons -- Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
...Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the scriptures. He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest.
...the Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, teach and empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.
...the Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of humankind. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
...humankind was originally created in the image and likeness of God; falling through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All persons are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only though the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
...salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all persons; and those who repent and believe on Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life and become the children of God.
...the church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the head of the body, the church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations.
...the local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and the observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper.
...there shall be a bodily resurrection of the Just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.
...the second coming of Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, and visible. This is the believers blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.

The AECC & AEC Statement of Faith has been replaced by the DMI Articles of Faith

ARTICLE VIII. THE SEVEN ARTICLES OF FAITH

We Believe...
...there is one God eternally existing and manifesting Himself to us in three persons -- Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
...Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He is our Lord and Savior  

...the Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, teach and empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.
...the Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were inspired by God and are sufficient for faith and practice. 

...Where the Scriptures speak, we speak; where the Scriptures are silent, we are silent.

...the church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood and are born again of the Holy Spirit.
...the local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and the observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper.

Each church planted by AEC ministers will be an Evangelical Christian Church registering with the Association. Established churches seeking affiliation are encouraged to contact us.

DISCLAIMER

Candidates holding no credentials should try to meet the educational requirement and be ordained in a ceremony by the "laying on of hands." A Regional Presiding Pastor / Superintendent or a minister of your acquaintance may assist with this ceremony. Ordination is by transfer or by the "laying on of hands" in a local ceremony.

In an effort to assist those who feel a calling into GOD'S service, the AEC has established (The Institute of Theology & Christian Therapy)Christian Ministry Institute and The International College of Christian Therapy.
