Equipping Ministers + Training Leaders

Application For Credentialing

Dear GMN Applicant
I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to take a serious look at joining the Global Ministries Network family. GMN is an exciting network of ministers and ministries who share a common desire to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
The three elements that separate GMN from many other ministerial networks is that it is established with a strong belief in:
• The fivefold ministry for today’s church
• An apostolic covering for each minister and ministry
• Building The Kingdom through cutting edge, thoroughly Pentecostal ministers and ministries
Once you have perused the information contained in this packet, I trust God will speak to you about becoming a part of GMN. Our goal is to assist you in any way possible to achieve the dreams God has placed in your heart. It would be our pleasure to lock arms with you in your mission to reach everyone in your circle of influence.

Doing HIS Work First,
Pastor Don Nordin
President and CEO

Global Ministries Network credentials duly qualified individuals for the work of the ministry. Through ministerial credentials, Global Ministries Network recognizes the call of God to full time ministry upon the lives of those it chooses to credential. Credentialing comes with certain privileges, but also requires a certain level of accountability. Global Ministries Network provides both.

Global Ministries Network assists individuals and ministers in planting churches. Church planting will always be a high priority. We intend to come alongside church planters for the purpose of developing structure, creating a plan, and growing healthy churches, families and individuals.

Global Ministries Network assists ministers and churches with a variety of mission efforts at home and abroad. The needs of the world will be our highest priority. The heart of our missions efforts will be “Inasmuch as you have done it unto the least of these, you have done it unto me.”

We will minister to the needs of the global community as if we are serving Jesus Himself.

Global Ministries Network exists for the purpose of carrying out compassionate ministries through its churches, ministers, and individuals connected to its network. Compassionate causes this entity will be involved in will include, but not be limited to:
• Feeding the hungry
• Creating educational services
• Ministering to the families of those who are incarcerated
• Providing a path to sobriety for those who are lost in addiction
• Meeting the needs of children through Back To School events
• Natural disaster emergency response efforts


Our Beliefs

We believe…

1. The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind. 
2. There is Only One True God revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 
3. In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ as God’s son; Jesus was both human and divine….
4. Man Willingly Fell into Sin ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
5. Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through ‘Salvation’ by accepting Christ’s offer of forgiveness for sin.
6. In two ordinances – (1) Water Baptism by Immersion (2) Holy Communion. 
7. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a Special Experience Following Salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times. 
8. The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is ‘Speaking in Tongues’, this experience was evidenced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles. We believe everyone from the apostles until now who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit has spoken in tongues immediately 
9. Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation. At conversion a person is made completely holy through the power of the blood, but a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil is also necessary.
10. The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe ‘the Church’ is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ. 
11. A Divinely Called and Scripturally Ordained Leadership Ministry Serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, and to build up or edify the body of believers – the Church. 
12. Divine Healing of the Sick is a Privilege for Christians Today. Healing is provided for in Christ’s atonement….
13. In the Imminent Return of Jesus. At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever. 
14. In the Millennial Reign of Christ. This is a time when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for one thousand years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.
15. A Final Judgment Will Take Place. This judgment will be for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in the lake of fire. 
16. In a New Heaven and a New Earth. This is a place that Christ has prepared for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. “And so shall we forever be with the Lord!”
