Newport Church desires that each person serving in the Worship Ministry:  reflects a commitment to the standards of God’s Word (ie. areas such as honesty, financial integrity, and sexual purity), refrains from any personal habits which could hinder his/her Christian testimony or cause another to stumble and is free from involvement in the occult. 

 

I understand that if I serve in the Worship Ministry I am representing Jesus Christ and Newport Church. I will do my best to serve with a Christ-like attitude and to maintain a lifestyle that is in accordance with the Word of God.
