Every Christian disciple has a ministry. Ministerial credentialing, however, relates to particular vocational calls and carries with it both recognition and accountability. Credentials are covenantal in nature; to accept such credentials is to become accountable to the established credentialing body of the appropriate area assembly. While most ministries reserved for the laity of the church do not require formal recognition as a means of establishing accountability, ministries practiced by clergy persons usually do.
The Texas General Assembly annually selects a team of ordained persons to oversee the credentialing process. The express purpose of this committee is to examine ministers for ordination and determine whether a candidate is qualified and worthy. The process follows the general guidelines of the Credentials Manual of the Church of God. All ministerial credentialing in the State of Texas are the express jurisdiction of the Texas General Assembly of the Church of God.
