Do I need to attend Seminary?

by Open Ministry

The Open Ministry stands for religious freedom. Seminary is not required to become a minister.

Everyone has the right and responsibility to determine what is right. The Open Ministry ordains those who ask, without cost and without question of faith. It is not your ordination or the piece of paper, which makes you a minister - rather it is your activity, how you act and what you do.

No regulatory power, whether created by a government or a church, will ever have any legitimate authority over those it purports to serve, other than that which comes from the individuals. As an adult individual, you are responsible for governing yourself, as long as you do not infringe on the rights of others. If you ask to be ordained as a minister, no church should refuse your ordination. How can they? What authority do they have to deny your ordination? You are solely responsible for your actions as a minister, not the church. It is not our ministry's place to judge your heart or the sincerity of your calling, or your ability to be effective as a minister.

We are equal in matters of religion. If someone is called to serve their community as a minister; their ministry can be evaluated by the good that they do.
