Logo

Any affiliate is allowed but not mandated for as long as the affiliation is active to make use of the EWCMI logo, as long as the following statement is provided;

[ministry name], an Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International affiliate.

 

 

The Bible, The Cross,

The Eagle, The World,

and The Ring of Fire

The Bible

Is the inspired, infallible and only authoritative Word of God.

The Cross

on which Jesus Christ shed His blood for forgiveness of the sin of mankind, so that all who believe in Him can receive a new beginning and eternal life.

The Eagle

Probably the strongest bird on earth, with a wingspan that can reach up to 10 feet (3 Meters)

Rev. 12:14 “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”

The woman is a representation of God's church.

The Eagle is the representation of how God will bring his Church into safety during the end of times, like he had done during the exodus.

Ex. 19:4 “Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.”

 

 

The World

The Bible tells us in Mat. 28 : 19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you."

This is called the Great Commissioning.

The ring of fire

A wish for the Nations

Luke 3 : 16 "John answered, saying unto [them] all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire."

That the fire of the Holy Spirit will be embedded in the hearts of the saints of God (Christians), so it will be spread around the world. Fulfilling the Great Commissioning.

Purpose

And still other EWCMI affiliates had existing missions programs which they have continued to support after participating in the EWCMI. Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International will consider adopting new missions outreaches supported by the new EWCMI affiliates. Either way as an EWCMI affiliate you will become involved in our missions program. Or as an EWCMI affiliate you can become a recipient in our missions program. Through the combined efforts of each affiliate we are able to have a significant impact and yet no one affiliate endures a heavy burden. Affiliate churches may send their missions giving to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International in either one of three ways:

  • Self Support

Provide a report of the mission project supported and how the affiliate supported the outreach.

  • Unrestricted Funds

Funds that are raised specifically for missions with no particular work specified are considered “unrestricted” missions funds. The funds sent to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International after prayerful review by the Overseers, and are used for ongoing missions projects. 100% of all mission funds are used for missions and we take every step to ensure the most cost effective means of transmitting funds to foreign countries.

  • Designated Funds

Designated funds must be sent to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International with a letter designating the specific mission project or country the funds are to be used for. 100% of all mission funds are used for missions and we take every step to ensure the most cost effective means of transmitting funds to foreign countries.

Participation in EWCMI work

Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International is an affiliation of pastors/ministers, churches/ministries and small groups, in service of the Lord our God Almighty.

Most of us hold a secular job beside our ministry. Through our common purpose and mission we are joined into the great commissioning and are all workers in God's Kingdom. To see our vision and mission fulfilled we ask you as an affiliate to prayerfully consider donating some of your time for EWCMI work in ;

  • Volunteering to serve in an official EWCMI capacity

  • Aiding churches in need of equipment and financial resources

  • Aid in congregation planting

  • Support of world missions

If you have a desire to be involved in a particular country or specific work cooperatively we can work together to this end.

  • Communicate with other EWCMI affiliates

Tithing

Requirements

The financial requirements of affiliation are based upon the Biblical principle found in Numbers 18:26 and Nehemiah 10:36. Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International does not charge dues, fees or an assessment, rather we believe in implementing the principles of God our giving. The wisdom found through our affiliates represents an equitable and Godly approach to fulfilling and supporting the work of God that is Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International.

 

Note : Pastors, Ministers, and Ministries in developing or war torn countries will be exempt from fees until the person/ministry has the ability to support EWCMI. This exemption will be made in understanding with the overseer.

Ordained Pastor / Minister

Each ordained pastor, minister will contribute a tenth of their tithe to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International each month. i.e. if a ministers income or increase from all sources is $1000 per month; the minister would contribute $10 to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International (the amount equals 1% of the total income or increase from all sources); the minister would contribute $90 to their Church/Ministry; the combination of the two amounts equals the full tithe.

Church/Ministry

  • Church

Each Church shall contribute one percent of the tithe they receive to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International (1% of the churches total tithe) each month. Though Biblically the tithe would be considered the first 10% of the believer’s contribution Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International exempts from the tithe, offerings that are for a designated purpose like missions and build projects

  • Ministry

Each non-congregation ministry shall contribute one percent of the offerings they receive to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International (1% of the ministry’s total offerings) each month. This does not include designated offerings. i.e. if a Church/Ministry receives from all sources is $1000 per month; the Church Ministry would contribute $10 to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International (the amount equals 1% of the total income or increase from all sources); the Church/Ministry is encouraged to contribute $90 through outreach; the combination of the two amounts equals the full tithe.

  • World Missions

Each Church/Ministry commits to support world missions twice a year. It is the intention of Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International that congregations take up a special offering designated for Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International missions. However a Church may use the funds raised to support a mission outreach supported by the local congregation and then report that support to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International.

Small Group Ministry

  • Each SGM shall contribute a minimum of $5 per month.

  • Each SGM shall raise funs through voluntary contributions for missions.

 

Note: An EWCMI Church/Ministry that plant a SGM and directs the SGM to take up regular contributions, will give 10% (the tithe) of the total contributions received by the SGM to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International and in addition will at least monthly take up a voluntary missions offering to be sent to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International for use in world missions. A EWCMI Church/Ministry that can not receive offerings (not set up to account for offerings) will

contribute 100% of funds raised in the SGM to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International

along with a detailed list of the source of the contributions. The EWCMI Church/Ministry and Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International will cooperatively document the intended use of the money and use it for the purposes intended.

Ethics

Ordination and Church and Ministry

As an acknowledged ordained minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ by Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International (“EWCMI”) I agree to hold the ministry of EWCMI harmless. I will not advertise that I’m working on behalf of EWCMI, without written permission, signed by the Head Overseer of EWCMI or their designee.

I understand that ordination is the acknowledgement by EWCMI, that God has ordained me. I understand that this acknowledgement gives me only such rights as ordained and given by God and administered by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, as published in the Holy Bible.

I understand that I have in no way any employment, work, or contractual agreement to act on the behalf of EWCMI. I understand that I am employed, empowered, called, chosen and selected by God, commissioned by The Lord Jesus Christ and Him alone. As an ordained minister, I fully promise to and support the vision of EWCMI, and affirm my agreement and adherence to the contents, purposes and requirements of the By-Laws, Policies, Procedures, Statement of Faith, and Bylaws of Affiliation of EWCMI.

I will always strive to uphold the witness of the Lord Jesus Christ by maintaining unity and harmony within the Body of Christ and acting in accordance with good and Biblical morals, while maintaining beliefs consistent with EWCMI.

I further agree to give full consideration and ministerial support to fellow EWCMI ministers, and will seek the best interest of the ministry and the cause of Christ in all circumstances. I understand that as an autonomous affiliate I maintain complete and total control of finances and will faithfully fulfill my monthly financial commitment to EWCMI.

Further I understand the importance of accountability and will submit a ministry report no less than twice a year when due in the form provided by EWCMI.

I further acknowledge the pastoral covering of EWCMI and will surrender all ordination certificate(s) and any other items that have my name on them and the term EWCMI, Ordained, Associated or other such phrase that describes the affiliate relationship, issued by EWCMI, if for any reason EWCMI or its Overseer, feel that I have broken that sacred trust, and revoke the acknowledgment of ordination. While holding ordination acknowledgement with EWCMI I will not hold ordination acknowledgement with another formal organization.

Nothing herein prevents me from working, partnering or teaming with another congregation (church), ministry or organization for the purpose of fulfilling the Grate Commission. I understand that my ordination will renew automatically every two years and is subject to changes at the discretion of EWCMI.

If I choose to discontinue the ordination acknowledgement relationship I will notify EWCMI in writing. If I should misrepresent of my authority or the relationship to EWCMI or any of its associate ministries it will result in immediate revocation of the ordination acknowledgement. I understand and fully embrace the concept of covenant relationship. The covenant relationship is what I offer to those who labor with me in the EWCMI and its affiliates.

Church/Ministry

As a Church/Ministry we understand that the code of ethics and commitments of an ordained minister apply also to a Church/Ministry. In addition we acknowledge continued independence as a non-denominational Church/Ministry from the ministry of Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International (“EWCMI”).

We will not advertise that our Church/Ministry is working for or on behalf of EWCMI, without written permission, signed by the Overseer of EWCMI and the Church/Ministry has not entered into any employment, work, or contractual agreement to act on the behalf of EWCMI. It is understood that the Church/Ministry is employed, empowered, called, chosen and selected by God, commissioned by The Lord Jesus Christ and Him alone.

As a Church/Ministry we will abide by the dispute resolution policy of Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International. The Church/Ministry will maintain operational guidelines (bylaws) that in the event of dissolution, will distribute the assets of the Church/Ministry to Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International or to a EWCMI Affiliate or a qualified church or ministry.

The Church/Ministry will adopt other operational guidelines (bylaws) consistent with governing a church or ministry.

The Church/Ministry will not enter into another formal affiliation with another organization but nothing prevents us from working, partnering or teaming with another congregation (church), ministry or organization for the purpose of ministry outreach.

As a Church/Ministry we acknowledge the complete control of pastors and staff functioning within the Church/Ministry.

Further we understand the importance of an established assembly of advisors (board) not inconsistent with Biblical direction, for there is safety in a multitude of counselors.

The Church/Ministry will comply with all state and federal laws, regulations and ordinances. The Church/Ministry will faithfully act in accordance with the traditions and edicts listed in the Holy Bible. EWCMI and The Church/Ministry agree that Biblical truth supersedes the commitments of man. Therefore upon written agreement this document may be modified from time to time The Church/Ministry understands and agrees; that if for any reason EWCMI feels that we have broken the sacred trust, EWCMI may revoke the Affiliation acknowledgment and we will without delay surrender all affiliation certificate(s) and any other items that have on them The Church/Ministry name and the term EWCMI, Affiliated, Associated or other such phrase that describes the EWCMI Affiliation relationship; issued by EWCMI.

Conflict of Interest Policy

This Conflict of interest policy is adopted from IRS form 1023, file i1023.pdf and for use with Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International and its affiliates.

Article I

Purpose

The purpose of the conflict of interest policy is to protect this tax-exempt organization’s (Organization) interest when it is contemplating entering into 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

1. 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.

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

Article III

Procedures
1. 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.

2. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 into the transaction or arrangement.

4. Violations of the Conflicts of Interest Policy
  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Understands the Organization is charitable and in order to maintain its federal tax exemption it must engage primarily in activities which accomplish one or more of its tax-exempt purposes.

Article VII
