THE COMMAND: Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you. 1 Tim. 4:16.
THE GOAL: To maintain leadership in our church and school that are pillars of the truth as found in the Bible (1 Tim. 3:15). Since instructional leaders under the rule of Christ incur the strictest judgment (James 3:1), we seek to assist them with their own examination and help their followers by making sure we are one in life and doctrine (John 17:21). It is a great value knowing our teachers and leaders will not confuse us through contradiction. We want to lead the people of God as one voice, the same instruction, toward maturing in Christ and not astray through example or speech.
THE PROCEDURE: God commands everyone to examine himself before he approaches the communion table (1 Cor. 11:28). Every Christian should be under constant self-evaluation according to the Word of God. The teacher/leader influence for good or bad is so significant, God requires stricter evaluation in the areas of doctrinal purity and moral integrity (Acts 20:28-30; 1 Thess. 5:12, 13; 1 Tim. 3:10; Titus 1:9; Heb. 13:7, 17). Therefore, evaluation is necessary so that New Covenant Church and School remains pure and peaceful, steadfast and immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord for the building up of his church in love.
We do not expect visitors, guests, friends or even every member of the New Covenant Church ministry to immediately find acceptance with all the doctrines of scripture we seek to teach, but we do expect our teachers/leaders to diligently present themselves as workmen approved of God who do not need to be ashamed through accurately handling the word of truth and living lives consistent with it (2 Tim. 2:15-19).
