We affirm and recognize a minister's calling & gifting through credentialing within the networks for the purpose of building strong, life-giving, Spirit-filled & mission-driven local churches.

General Requirements

Liberty Network International ministerial credentials are provided only through the individual networks.

The Apostolic Council has defined and provided some general guidelines for the networks to consider when credentialing. It entrusts the discernment of the network leadership to this responsibility. These guidelines include:

A. Meet biblical standards as outlined in the pastoral epistles.
B. Have had an ongoing relationship within the network.
C. An observable calling within the five-fold ministry.
D. Is proven to be teachable and submitted to leadership.

Liberty Network International functions as a decentralized family of networks, each with their own individual personality and vision, and with their own individual leadership teams.

Some networks will only ordain, while others will license and then later ordain. Some will require annual renewal, while others will not. Others will provide for internships for those working toward credentials. Some will require formal Bible College training, while others will not.

Membership Liberty Network is by invitation only. Every member must be recommended by a current member who has been a member for more than one year and approved by the network leader.
