RPI endorses legitimate ministries that do not fall under the category of churches and licensed and ordained ministers. These ministries must meet the same requirements, as do Associate Membership Churches and Ministers. However, these ministries are not required to hold license or ordination with RPI. These ministries will enjoy the endorsement of our fellowship as long as they remain in good standing and continue to meet the standards of membership.
Affiliating ministries may be represented in business meetings by a chosen delegate, and are granted voting privileges. These delegates must be filled with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues and be living a consistent, holy life. Ministry delegates are subject to the approval by the general board of RPI and must be on record with RPI at least two weeks prior to any RPI meetings in which they vote.
