To be ordained or licensed biblically begins with the candidate first acknowledging God's call to the ministry and then begins the biblical and legal process of examination that leads to ordination or a ministry license that affords the candidate exciting opportunities for ministry. Such as: officiating wedding ceremonies, baptisms, starting a church or other ministries, becoming a pastor or chaplain and much more (1 Timothy 3:6; 5:22).
The examination should conclude that the individual is indeed called by God and has demonstrated that they are able to provide leadership for the church. It must also be determined that they are Scripturally Sound and Spiritually Grounded. This determination must be provided by the Holy Spirit (Acts 13:2).
Once the examination is complete with the assurance that the candidate meets the biblical mandate for ordination or licensing, the candidate then assumes full responsibility of their God ordained capacity for the ministry and then is considered an ordained or licensed minister both scripturally and legally.
Ordination and licensing for ministry is a very serious matter. There are many shortcuts for ordination or becoming a licensed minister that are merely generic. Serious candidates for ordination will seek a process to ordination or licensing that is both scriptural and legal.
The ordination and licensing process should include an appropriate effort in biblical education and ministerial training. The Bible emphasizes that we should study to show ourselves approved unto God (2 Timothy 2:15).
