While serving the Body of Christ as a Circle Leader, you pledge to present a good appearance at all times. In both attire and behavior, you should strive to demonstrate Biblical standards in all situations.
As Christians, the way we present ourselves is of vital importance to the way others perceive Christ. Our conduct should never be an embarrassment to Christ, but should exemplify the best qualities of a mature believer and servant-leader.
Exemplifying the highest moral commitment, Royalwood Church leaders are to maintain a disciplined life of Bible reading, tithing, prayer and fasting. All Christians should actively work to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His plan of salvation - repentance, baptism, and spirit-infilling. You must also refrain from such things as: profanity, smoking or chewing tobacco, gambling, indulging in alcoholic beverages, dishonest gain, illegal drugs, pornography, sexual immorality, and all behaviors which might cause Christ to grieve and others to stumble.
By providing an example in speech and action, we encourage others to grow in Christ and become servant-leaders themselves. This is a way of life measured by the heart and commitment of each leader in the Royalwood Church family. We should regard it as an essential part of our development, not as an imposition or restriction.
