Welcome to The Empowerment Center Church and ChurchFreedom.org’s Doctrinal Laws and Church Terms of Use and Privacy Policy Agreement!

Thanks for using our Church ministry support services (“Support Services”). The Ministry Support Services here are freely provided by The Empowerment Center Church and ChurchFreedom.org. Regular Church services are held weekly online at www.SoundCloud.com/ChurchFreedomhttps://www.youtube.com/user/empowermentcenter1 and https://plus.google.com/+JoshuaKennyGreenwood/

By reading or using our website and or using any free ministry support services provided, you are accepting and agreeing to these terms, including our Church Establishment Affidavit’s doctrines (which is located here: http://www.churchfreedom.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Church-Establishment-Affidavit-for-The-Empowerment-Center-Church.pdf) and our Church privacy policy (located at http://www.ChurchFreedom.org/privacy). You understand and accept that these terms are lawful, legal and binding upon you, in any court, anywhere in The United States of America, without protest or objection or that of those who represent you. Please read them carefully.

Our Ministry Support Services are very diverse, so sometimes additional terms or requirements (including age requirements) may apply. Additional terms will be available with the relevant Services, and those additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services. You must be 18 years or older to use this website.

I. USING OUR CHURCH MINISTRY SERVICES

You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.

Don’t misuse our Ministry Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.

Using our Ministry Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.

You unconditionally understand and unconditionally agree that by simply reading and or viewing this website and or accessing our website materials and or printing materials from this website that you hereby unconditionally understand and unconditionally agree that our TERMS OF USE AGREEMENT and its subsequent provisions, policies, permissions and clauses are true, correct, legal, lawful and binding upon you, in any court, anywhere in The United States of America, without protest or objection or that of those who represent you.

In order to use this website, our educational Church materials and support, you unconditionally agree and fully understand and accept the following terms of use agreement, policies and indemnifications:

1. That you are a born again or practicing Christian, believing in the existence and teaching of Jesus Christ.

2. That you are a man or woman of great integrity and that you’re household is in Godly order as it plainly described in the New Testament book of 1 Timothy 3:1-13 which states, “Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.  In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well. Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.”

3. You understand and unconditionally agree that your Corporation Sole is required to have BOTH a Successor and Secretary. Now, the role of the Corporate Sole’s Successor is VERY IMPORTANT for several reasons. Mainly, if the primary ‘Overseer’ of the Corporation Sole either dies or resigns, then ALL Bank Accounts, Stocks/Bonds, Trusts, Agreements, Land Holdings, Titles, Responsibilities and EVERYTHING immediately transfer to the Successor. For all intents and purposes, the Title and Role of ‘Overseer/Bishop’ are instantly transferred to the Successor in either of these instances. This is a vital position and one that is typically filled by a spouse or someone within the Church that is rightfully next in line of succession in inheriting the Title of Office in which you are creating. Likewise, the Corporation Sole’s Secretary are responsible for the efficient administration of the incorporation, particularly with regard to ensuring compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements and for ensuring that decisions by you as the sole director are implemented. You hereby agree to have your Church/ministry has a person or person(s) actively willing to serve in these roles. You completely understand and unconditionally agree that this person or person(s) cannot also be listed as an additional Church member witness. IMPORTANT NOTE: The Successor and Secretary of your Corporation Sole can be either the same person or a person the Church elects to fulfill this role.
You agree that in addition to having a person or person(s) willing to serve as the Successor or Secretary for your Corporation Sole, that you also have two additional person(s) that are willing to sign your Church Affidavit listed as, “Church Members”.

4. You agree to have a name picked out as the name of your proposed Church. (Example: Our Church is called, “The Empowerment Center Church”).

5. You unconditionally agree that upon request (which may or may not be requested at our discretion), that you have a vision statement prepared for your Church and or letter of recommendation from your Current Pastor releasing you into ministry.

6. That You Completely Understand that By Signing The, “Church Establishment” Affidavit, That You are Simultaneously and Lawfully, Declaring the creation of a bona fide Christian Church, Becoming an Ordained Pastor/Teacher and That the Title of the “Office” in the Corporate Sole is Going to be That of an Overseer/Bishop. You also understand and agree that the Church Establishment Affidavit must be approved, signed and notarized by at least 2-3 current Church member witnesses.

7. You UNDERSTAND and unconditionally agree that upon approval of your Churches Corporation Sole application that our Corporate Sole, “The Empowerment Center Church Overseer aka CorporationSole.org and ChurchFreedom.org” gives you the option to freely act as your Montana Based Domiciled “Registered Agent”.

11.

31. There is an argument to be made that the lawful creation of a Church lawfully recognized under the law of 26 USC 508(c)(1)(a) through the use of a private Church Establishment Affidavit and then isolating an incorporated office within the Church (which acts as the Corporation Sole), thereby, freeing the Church itself (not the Churches subsequent Corporation Sole), to become lawfully immune to 501c3 political restrictions and Gender Law requirements and allowing the Church the ability to lobby congress, distribute propaganda, or urge the Church to vote for or against any particular candidate running for political office. You understand and agree that this argument has not been tested in court, nor to our knowledge has any Church seeking the ministry support of ChurchFreedom.org been approached by a Government Agency to challenge this argument any court. Any Church(s) or Individual(s) reading or using this site, or using our various ministry resources, should always seek professional advice before making any decision to organize their Church or Ministry through The Empowerment Center Church Overseer or ChurchFreedom.org.
