Doctrinal Protection Policy – Adopted by CEF International Board of Trustees, May 6, 2002
Child Evangelism Fellowship continues in its commitment to its Statement of Faith, which embodies the non-negotiable and historic beliefs of evangelical Christians.
Within the community of evangelical believers various distinctives exist which do not prevent our fellowship in the Lord and our effectiveness as child evangelists.
We therefore resolve that CEF® workers are qualified by their unreserved commitment to CEF’s Statement of Faith and their further commitment in all CEF activities to refrain from teaching or otherwise advocating doctrinal distinctives either contrary to or in addition to the Statement of Faith.
Recognizing the spiritual need of boys and girls in our community and around the world, I would like to assist in the work of Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF).
I understand that CEF is without specific denominational affiliation, and have read the Statement of Faith and CEF doctrinal Protection Policy. In becoming a coworker with CEF, and in order to protect the ministry, I agree not to propagate or practice in CEF ministries any distinctive or controversial doctrines, methods and practices that would go beyond the CEF Statement of Faith and the approved CEF curriculum. These would include but not be limited to such things as modes of baptism, alteration of the Gospel message, speaking in tongues, interpretation of Scripture by experience, healing on demand, etc. I understand that anyone who does not adhere to this agreement cannot serve with CEF as paid staff or volunteer.
In teaching Bible lessons in core CEF programs I will use exclusively materials approved by CEF.
In offering my services I trust the Lord to make me a faithful servant, and should problems arise between CEF and me that cannot be fully reconciled, I will quietly withdraw to preserve the harmony essential to having an effective Christian witness.
Every lesson series contains these teaching aids:
All workers for CEF of Silicon Valley must comply with the following process in order to be considered as a potential ministry worker.
