How to perform a wedding ceremony (in 4 simple steps
The Executive Committee of the General Board of the National Association of Free Will Baptists has prepared the following information, which has been endorsed by the National Association of Free Will Baptists.
It’s important to remember that these guidelines are meant to be descriptive rather than legislative. No governing body has the authority to set ordination requirements for the denomination as a whole; each ordaining body within the denomination is free to practice whatever it wants.
However, from time to time, different people involved in ordaining duties want to know what is being done in the denomination elsewhere. As a result, the following set of guidelines has been developed. The Executive Committee is confident that the recommendations and descriptions will be useful to those seeking additional information on ordination.
2. In practice, however, some local Free Will Baptist churches collaborate on ordination by delegating ordination authority to the association of churches with which the local church is affiliated. The true source of this power, on the other hand, should never be forgotten.

The Baptist denomination is the second-largest in the United States and one of the world’s largest. It is also one of the world’s most culturally diverse denominations, with thousands of umbrella groups and non-denominational churches belonging to the broader Baptist denominations’ fellowship.
There are a variety of ordination requirements among Baptists, all of which are conferred in the local church. There is no such thing as “universal ordination,” since all Baptist churches are locally autonomous and only grant the practice of ordained ministry to that particular church, their local association, or affiliated national body (for example, ordination in the American Baptist Church does not constitute ordination in The Progressive National Baptist Convention).
Baptists have traditionally chosen lay ministers, with no special educational requirements other than the minister’s gravity of Baptist polity, distinctives, articles of faith, systematic theology, and saving faith. While ordination requirements vary by denomination, most follow a two-step process that begins with Gospel ministry licensure and ends with ordination.
You’re officially ordained // who’s the minister here? (part 1
At a wedding, the ceremony must be performed by an official. A justice of the peace, as well as a licensed or ordained clergy member, may perform a wedding in most states. The differences in clergy qualifications differ from state to state.
The terms “ordained” and “licensed” are used by most denominations to refer to clergy members who have slightly different positions within the church, though the specific differences vary by denomination. However, the general trend is that a license to practice ministry comes with certain restrictions and may expire after a set period of time. An ordained minister, on the other hand, is a permanent member of the clergy.
A church bestows the status of ordination. A minister may be ordained in a variety of ways, from filling out an online application to spending a few years in seminary. All of the duties of a church leader can be performed by an ordained minister, including leading services, preaching, and performing baptisms.
Transformation Ministries will evaluate candidates for ordination and recommend to the local church those who have demonstrated biblical understanding and an aptitude for communicating biblical truth in their ministries.

The issue of Ministerial Ordination is extremely important. The qualifications for a gospel minister are laid out in God’s Word. An exposition of the qualifications outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:6-9, and other passages of Scripture is beyond the scope of this paper. However, because God has given His church the qualifications for ministry, denominations, associations, and even local churches do not have the authority to disregard those qualifications and ordain men who do not meet them properly. The re-discovery of plural eldership has led some to rush into ordination and lessen Biblical standards in the pursuit of plurality in many circles, including among Reformed Baptists. It has frequently resulted in tragic consequences for the church and the improperly ordained man himself. Others have simply lowered the bar for some elders, effectively creating a two-tiered system in the eldership that isn’t plural at all.
We do not believe that ordination is a sacrament or that it elevates the individual to a new or higher spiritual status as Reformed Baptists. Ordination is the local church’s formal acknowledgement that God has called and gifted a man to serve in that church. Each local church is responsible for identifying the man or men whom God has called to serve Him in that specific location. God is the source of the calls first and foremost. Next, the man must have a strong desire to serve in the ministry. The local church must officially accept the man’s call from God and set him apart for gospel ministry as the final vital and necessary step.
