Wondering if this Ministry site is real and if we are official? The answer is YES and YES!!! here's how.
Ordination is the personal calling of an individual, by God, to enter into the ministry.
The legal fact is that the United States government does not legally control ordination whatsoever because of the Freedom of Religion clause in the Bill of Rights, also known as the First Amendment, which reads in whole:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. "
