Renewal instructions

Read through the instructions completely!!

To renew your membership:

1. Go to the website but DON'T sign in.

2. Look for the picture that says "Time to Renew" and click it.

3. It will take you to the page with our Statement of Faith on it. Please read this and click the blue box below the statement to show that you have read it and understand that it is the Statement of Faith for the CHEMinistry group.

4. Upon clicking the blue box, you will be redirected to another page that will have a PayPal button on it. Click the PayPal button and you will be taken to PayPal. The membership dues are $20 and this button will automatically take you to PayPal and put in the correct membership amount. Once you have paid, the next time you sign onto the website, you will see a screen asking you to look over your account details and make any corrections.

Note: Please DO NOT go directly to the PayPal site and send $20 to CHEMinistry. We realize that it can be done that way, but it causes complications. We need everyone to use the PayPal button that is embedded in our website. Going through the four steps above not only tells us that you have read the Statement of Faith but the money and the name attached to that money comes to our Membership Coordinator in a consistent manner. Our Membership Coordinator already has to process over 170 memberships each year and following the above procedure helps out a lot.

Reminder: Your password and username that you have used to log into your CHEMinistry account will not change when you renew your membership. If you have problems logging in, please check to see that you are using the correct username and password. You can always select the “Forgot Username?” or “Forgot Password?” buttons underneath the Secure Login if you can’t remember them.

CHEMinistry Statement of Faith

We believe the Holy Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the very inspired Word of God. The Bible is without error, true, authoritative, and sufficient. We believe there is only one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that all things exist for the glory of God and that all humanity, Christ excluded, is sinful by both birth and action. We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully human and that he died as the sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for sin. We believe Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will one day physically return. We believe God perfectly created men and women equal before God as persons, and established their identities as distinct and complementary in their manhood and womanhood. For our good and His glory, God created marriage as the original and foundational institution of human society, established by God as a one-flesh, covenantal union between one man and one woman that is life-long, exclusive, and generative in nature. We believe there will be a future physical resurrection of the dead and only those who turn from sin and to Jesus in faith and repentance will be raised to eternal reward. We believe those who do not turn from sin and to Jesus will be raised to eternal punishment. We believe only through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God and experience true life and joy.

Those in a leadership role in CHEMinistry, such as teachers, coaches, administrators, etc., are expected to also personally affirm the statement of faith (SOF) and agree to reflect this in their teaching and instruction. We ask that if you disagree with the CHEMinistry SOF to refrain from any leadership role.

I have read and acknowledge the above Statement of Faith for CHEMinistry.
