The Singapore Covenant World Evangelical Fellowship Signed by the WEF International Staff in Singapore, July 5, 1994
In dependence upon the Holy Spirit, fully identified with World Evangelical Fellowship, supporting it’s mission and in sincere inter-dependent partnership with each other as vital members of the WEF family, we the staff members solemnly affirm these commitments before the Triune God.
We commit ourselves to personal purity. We affirm the need for vital personal growth in Christ, with transparency before God and our colleagues. Integrity, holiness must mark our personal walk with God. These are intimate matters, but at the same time we can and must submit them to scrutiny by loving and honest colleagues.
We will establish a personal team of fellow servants who will call us to authentic accountability in our private, family and public worlds. When necessary we will submit to and support restorative discipline.
We commit ourselves to the spiritual disciplines. We confess that as Christian leaders we have given too little time to prayer and the Word, and we ask God's forgiveness for this inconsistency.
We as WEF staff desire that our ministry be marked by personal godliness, not only by competency, strategic thinking, and effective programs. We pledge to encourage and challenge each other, by sharing articles and books that have impacted us directly, by praying for each other and by informing each other that we do so pray.
We commit ourselves to our family. We affirm that parents and/or spouse and children are our initial responsibility. May our ministry not be at their expense, producing bitterness, but rather resulting in love and respect. We will seek to maintain a balance between family and ministry to others. We shall submit our travel schedules to our spouses as well as our accountability team.
We commit ourselves to financial integrity. We accept our responsibility as stewards of God's resources, and will open our personal financial records to trusted colleagues. Our corporate financial books can be evaluated by competent believers who articulate a valid cause to know how we raise, account for, and use funds.
We commit ourselves to a local church. We will seek opportunities for witness and service according to our gifts and time. We will model in our local churches what we in WEF desire to see built in the worldwide Body of Christ.
We commit ourselves to respect Christian organizations and leaders. We seek to build up the Body of Christ! We confess that too easily we can belittle others. We wish to be characterized as a movement that genuinely affirms other leaders and the ministries they serve. Where there is error, however, we will speak the truth in love.
We commit ourselves to honest communication. We will report stories and statistics accurately, without embellishment. We shall give credit to the individuals and organizations involved.
We covenant that our lives and ministry will by God's grace exemplify Scripture: “You are witnesses.…”
