Article lV. Statement of Faith

Our Statement of Faith Per The KJV Holy Bible

Kingdom Construction Crew Ministries Inc is a non-denominational Spirit Filled full gospel Christian church/ministerial network community.

The Scriptures Inspired

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to men, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (2 Tim. 3:15-17; 1 Pet. 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12).

The One True God

The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed “I AM,” and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, by simultaneously existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isa. 43:10, 11; Matt. 28:19).

Man’s Fall and Redemption

Man, was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make man in our image and after our

likeness.” Man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31; Gen. 3:17; Romans 5:12-21).

The Salvation of Man

Conditions of Salvation

The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; man, is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, and being justified by grace, has become heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Ro. 10:13-15; Luke 24:47).

Evidences of Salvation

The inward evidence to the believer of his/her salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Ro. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of holiness (1 Thess. 4:7, 2 Tim.1:9).

Baptism in Water

The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed (as commanded in the Scriptures) by all that have repented of their sins and in their hearts, have believed on Christ as their Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they have also been released to walk with Him in newness of life (Matt. 28:19; Ro. 6:4).

The Lord’s Supper (Communion)

The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements, bread and fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing in a memorial to His suffering and death, and a prophecy of His second coming, and is enjoined to all believers “until He comes” (John 6:48,51,53-57; Luke 22:19,20; 2 Pet. 1:4; 1 Cor. 11:25).

The Promise of the Father

All believers should ardently expect and earnestly seek the Promise of the Father, which is the baptism in the Holy Spirit. With it comes the infilling of power for life and service, and the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-31). This experience may be distinct from and after the experience of the New Birth (Acts 2:38; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9).

Sanctification Process

By the power of the Holy Spirit we strive to obey the command, “Be ye holy, for I am holy.” Sanctification is the will of God for all believers, and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God’s Word (Heb. 12:14; 1 Pet. 1:15, 16; 1 Thess. 5:23, 24; 1 John 2:6).

The Church

The church is the holy Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer is an integral part of the church, and their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life (I Thess. 2:4). We believe the Holy Spirit manifested himself threw a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify his church and to confirm the word of God with Biblical signs. We also believe in the operations of the five-fold ministry gifts (Ascension Gifts) are for today’s church (1 Corinthians 12:4-11) (Ephesians 4-10-16).

Marriage

Since the Holy Bible only shows that God’s design for marriage to only be between one man of gender birth and one women of gender birth, we will follow such practices. (Genesis 2:23-25) (St. Mark 10:6-9 KJV Holy Bible)

Ministry

Divinely called and Scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for a two-fold purpose: (1) The evangelization of the world, and (2) The edification of the Body of Christ (Mark 16:15, 20; Eph. 4:11-13).

Divine Healing

Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement of Christ and is the privilege of all believers (Isa. 53:4, 5; Matt. 8:16, 17; Mark 16:18; John 5:14).

The Blessed Hope

The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation, together with those who are alive and remain unto the Lord, is imminent and is the blessed hope of the church (1 Thess. 4:16; Ro. 6:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor. 15:51,52).

The Millennial Reign of Jesus

The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven, the salvation of national Israel, and the millennial reign of Christ on the earth are Scriptural promises and our hope (2 Thess. 1:7; Rev. 19:1l-16; Ro. 11:25; Rev. 20: l-7).

The Lake of Fire

The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and whosoever is not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Rev. 19:20; 20:10-15).

The New Heavens and New Earth

We, as promised in the Scriptures, believe that there will be a new heaven, and a new earth wherein the righteousness will dwell with God forever (2 Pet. 3:13; Rev. 21: l).

Article V. Ordinances

Water Baptism

The ordinance of water baptism (Matt. 28:19) shall be administered by all established places of worship to all those who have repented of their sins and who have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ to the saving of their souls (Ro. 6:3-5; Col.2:12).

The Lord’s Supper

The ordinance of the Lord’s Supper shall be observed regularly by all established places of worship, as enjoined in the Scriptures (Luke 22:19, 20; 1Cor. 11:23-26)

Article Vl. Membership

Kingdom Construction Crew Ministries Inc. desires to encourage all persons called of God to fulfill their ministry. It does not sit in judgment on those who have made mistakes, but leaves them with God.

It is strongly recommended that when situations requiring discipline arise, that ministers, organizations, and churches follow the Biblical method laid down by Christ – that every effort be put forth to secure reconciliation, but if all else fails, then divine discipline should be in order (Matthew 18: 15-19). When disciplinary action becomes necessary with respect to any member, such action shall be taken in accordance with the principles set forth in Article XXI. (Discipline) of these By-laws.

According to scripture all leaders in the body of Christ are required to maintain the highest standards of holy living in the world (Titus 1:6-9) (Timothy 3:2-7).

This association is committed to resolving in a Biblical manner all conflicts that may arise in our body. [A conflict is any clash or divergence of opinion or interest.] This commitment is based on God's command that Christians should strive earnestly to live at peace with one another (Matt 5:9; John 17:20-23; Rom 12:18; Ephesians 4:1-3) and that when conflicts arise, Christians should resolve them per the principles set forth in Scripture (Proverbs 19:11; Matt 5:23-25, 18:15-22; 1 Corinthians 6:1-8; Gal 6:1). We believe that these commands and principles are required of all Christians and essential for the well- being and work of the church. Therefore, conflicts in this association shall be resolved per Biblical principles, as provided by this Bylaw.

a. When a member of this association has a conflict with another member or group of members, the member shall attempt to resolve the matter as follows:

(1) The member having the conflict shall prayerfully examine him- or herself and take responsibility for his or her contribution to the conflict (Matt 7:3- 5), and shall prayerfully seek to discern whether the conflict is so serious that it must be addressed (Proverbs 19:11; see also Proverbs 12:16, 15:18, 17:14, 20:3; Ephesians 4:1-3; Col 3:12-15; 1 Pet 4:8).

(2) If the conflict is so serious it must be addressed, the member with the conflict shall go, repeatedly if necessary, and talk to the other(s) to resolve the matter personally and privately, having first confessed one's own wrong-doing, if any, and asking forgiveness

(Matt 18:15).

(3) If the other(s) will not listen and if the conflict is so serious it must be addressed, the member with the conflict shall return with one or two other people who will attempt to help the parties resolve their differences (Matt 18:16); these other members may be members or officers of the association, other respected Christians, or trained mediators or arbitrators (conciliators) from a Christian conciliation ministry.

(4) At the request of either party to the conflict, this association shall make every effort to assist the parties in resolving their differences and being reconciled.

Article XXI. Discipline

All matters of discipline shall be conducted in accordance with the Holy

Scriptures of God ‘s word (The Holy Bible).

Interpretation of Scripture:

Premise:

This association will face many decisions in its future which will not be explicitly covered by a Statement of Faith. There will remain many areas uncovered which will require position statements, decisions and/or actions.

Basis:

This association will look to the Holy Scriptures for its faith and practice. Since the Scriptures are God's written Word, they are free from error as originally written and must be the source of authority and decision making for this organization. In its decision making, the association will take into consideration church history and

tradition, and the wealth of knowledge to be found within the writings of the scriptures.

a. This organization, its leaders, staff and member churches, ministries, and ministers agree to strive to please God in all things and to abide by the teaching of Scripture. We will strive not only to understand the Scriptures, but when understood, to stand under its teaching and instruction. Both our individual and corporate lives will be placed under the authority of God's Word.

b. Freedom of Conscience:

Only the Lord may bind the conscience of an individual. No church council, statement, or decision has such authority over the conscience of an individual. However, all member churches, ministries, ministers, and any outreach and discipleship ministry members have the responsibility to understand and stand under the Word of God.

Where the Scriptures do not speak explicitly and/or clearly, this association and its members may allow for appropriate different beliefs and practices. We will agree to disagree agreeably showing grace, understanding, love and respect. At no time, will this association require any member, staff person or leader to practice or endorse what he or she individually does not believe is taught in the Scriptures. However, at no time will this association permit any member, staff person or leader to promote any belief which contradicts our Statement of Faith, Constitution, or Bylaws.

Article XXII. Inclusiveness

This association is a part of the church universal, which is one Body in Christ. We acknowledge that all persons are of sacred worth. All persons without regard to race, color, national origin, status, or economic condition, shall be eligible to attend our worship services, participate in its programs, receive the sacraments, and be admitted as members. This association shall not be structured to exclude anyone from becoming a member because of race, color, national origin, status or economic conditions or differing beliefs. However, as stated before, at no time will this association permit any member church, ministry, minister, staff person, or leader to promote in representation of this association to promote any belief which contradicts our Statement of Faith, Constitution, or Bylaws.

Article XXIII. Biblical Counsel/Pastoral Care/Privacy

Section 1: Structure

All Christians encounter situations in life concerning how best to honor and please God. In addition, all Christians struggle with sin and the effect it has on our lives and our relationships (Rom 3:23, 7:7-25). Whenever a Christian, through private efforts, is unable to discern the Lord's will in a matter or is having difficulty in overcoming sinful attitudes or behaviors, Scripture indicates that the individual should seek assistance from pastors, elders or other Godly believers. (Rom 15:14; Col 3:16; 2 Tim 3:16-4:2; Hebrews 10:24-25; James 5:13-16). Therefore, this association encourages and enjoins its members to seek counsel as appropriate, and to make confession to each other.

We believe that the highest priority of life is to honor and obey God in all things, and that the Bible provides thorough guidance and instruction for our faith and life.

Therefore, our counsel and pastoral care shall be based on Scriptural principles, and shall exclude all principles, techniques, or information contrary to Scripture from the fields of psychology, psychiatry, philosophy or other sources. The pastoral team of this church will not be serving as licensed psychotherapists or mental health professionals, and should not be expected to follow the methods of such specialist

Members of any kind who have significant legal, financial, psychological, medical, or other technical questions or needs should seek advice from independent professionals. Our pastoral team shall be available to cooperate with such advisors and help others to consider their advice in the light of relevant Scriptural principles.

Section 2: Privacy/Confidentiality

This organization shall diligently watch to keep private all records concerning polity, doctrine, counseling and information on individuals in fellowship with this Association. This corporation must not disclose any records that may compromise information about a member’s attendance, membership status, giving and counseling records. The Bible teaches that Christians should carefully guard any personal and/or private information that others reveal to them. Protecting confidences is a sign of Christian love and respect (see Matt 7:12). It also discourages harmful gossip (Proverbs 16:28, 26:20), invites confession (see Proverbs 11:13, 28:13; James 5:16), and encourages people to seek needed Biblical counsel and pastoral care (Proverbs 20:19, Rom 15:14). Since these goals are essential to the ministry of the gospel and the work of this Association, all members are expected to refrain from gossip and to respect the confidences of others. Our Senior Missional Pastor and any approved appointed pastors shall carefully keep confidential and protect all personal information they receive through Biblical counsel and pastoral care in one-on-one sessions, group meetings or other ministries, subject to the following guidelines.

1. Although confidentiality is to be respected as much as possible, there are times when it is appropriate to reveal certain personal information to others without

obtaining prior informed consent from the person(s).

APPENDIX A:

Conflict of Interest Policy of

Kingdom Construction Crew Ministries Inc.

Purpose:

The purpose of the conflict of interest policy is to protect this tax-exempt organization's interest when it is contemplating entering a transaction or arrangement that might benefit the private interest of an officer or director of the organization or might result in a possible excess benefit transaction. This policy is intended to supplement but not replace any applicable state and federal laws governing conflict of interest applicable to nonprofit and charitable organizations.

Article II Definitions Interested Person

Any director, principal officer, or member of a committee with governing board delegated powers, who has a direct or indirect financial interest, as defined below, is an interested person.

Financial Interest

A person has a financial interest if the person has, directly or indirectly, through business, investment, or family:

"An ownership or investment interest in any entity with which the organization has a transaction or arrangement,

"A compensation arrangement with the organization or with any entity or individual with which the organization has a transaction or arrangement, or

"A potential ownership or investment interest in, or compensation arrangement with, any entity or individual with which the organization is negotiating a transaction or arrangement.

Compensation includes direct and indirect remuneration as well as gifts or favors that are not insubstantial.

A financial interest is not necessarily a conflict of interest. Under Article III,

Section 2, a person who has a financial interest may have a conflict of interest only if the appropriate governing board or committee decides that a conflict of interest exists.

Article III Procedures Duty to Disclose

In connection with any actual or possible conflict of interest, an interested person must disclose the existence of the financial interest and be given the opportunity to disclose all material facts to the directors and members of committees with governing board delegated powers considering the proposed transaction or arrangement.

Determining Whether a Conflict of Interest Exists:

After disclosure of the financial interest and all material facts, and after any discussion with the interested person, he/she shall leave the governing board or committee meeting while the determination of a conflict of interest is discussed and voted upon. The remaining board or committee members shall decide if a conflict of interest exists.

Procedures for Addressing the Conflict of Interest:

An interested person may make a presentation at the governing board or committee meeting, but after the presentation, he/she shall leave the meeting during the discussion of, and the vote on, the transaction or arrangement involving the possible conflict of interest.

The chairperson of the governing board or committee shall, if appropriate, appoint a disinterested person or committee to investigate alternatives to the proposed transaction or arrangement.

After exercising due diligence, the governing board or committee shall determine whether the organization can obtain with reasonable efforts a more advantageous transaction or arrangement from a person or entity that would not give rise to a conflict of interest.

If a more advantageous transaction or arrangement is not reasonably possible under circumstances not producing a conflict of interest, the governing board or committee shall determine by a majority vote of the disinterested directors whether the transaction or arrangement is in the organization's best interest, for its own benefit, and whether it is fair and reasonable. In conformity with the above determination it shall make its decision as to whether to enter the transaction or arrangement.

Violations of the Conflicts of Interest Policy

If the governing board or committee has reasonable cause to believe a member has failed to disclose actual or possible conflicts of interest, it shall inform the member of the basis for such belief and afford the member an opportunity to explain the alleged failure to disclose.

If, after hearing the member's response and after making further investigation as warranted by the circumstances, the governing board or committee determines the member has failed to disclose an actual or possible conflict of interest, it shall take appropriate disciplinary and corrective action.

Article IV

Records of Proceedings

The minutes of the governing board and all committees with board delegated powers shall contain the names of the persons who disclosed or otherwise were found to have a financial interest about an actual or possible conflict of interest, the nature of the financial interest, any

action taken to determine whether a conflict of interest was present, and the governing boards or committee's decision as to whether a conflict of interest in fact existed.

Furthermore, the minutes shall contain the names of the persons who were present for discussions and votes relating to the transaction or arrangement, the content of the discussion, including any alternatives to the proposed transaction or arrangement, and a record of any votes taken about the proceedings.

Appendix B:

The ethical code for staff, leaders, and any commissioned, licensed, ordained, men and women of this association are as follows:
