Pastor Mike's Code of Conduct

Every now and then, I take a look at some of the things said here in this group. This is the Bethel Church group. You are here voluntarily. You have chosen to align yourself with Bethel Church, and me as your Pastor. Here is what we do at Bethel Church that should be in place here:

  1. We do not fight at Bethel Church.
  2. We do not accuse brethren at Bethel Church. We have a devil that does that for us.
  3. We handle doctrinal disputes privately, respectfully and in love -- not in public with name calling.
  4. We forbear one another in love, because we are all we have. We have learned to put up with one another, in spite of things that we all do that are wrong.
  5. We forgive one another, often without an apology.
  6. We apologize to one another.
  7. We pray for one another.
  8. We confess our faults to one another.
  9. When one is weak, we carry their burdens.
  10. When one rejoices, we rejoice with them.
  11. When one cries, we cry with them.
  12. The people of Bethel Church listen to, pray for and forbear their Pastor.

Watchman Community Members are required to observe and follow these guidelines:

Please Note: Although you “agreed” to the WatchmanCommunity.com’s Terms and Policies when you subscribed, we are aware that most people do not actually read them. Therefore, we have summarized the key points that we would like all members to be aware of.

PLEASE DO NOT share Watchman Video Broadcast (WVB), Pure Bible Study (PBS), Prophetic Research Ministry (PRM), King James Code (KJC), or Bethel Church (BC) video links outside of this community. If this should happen, first we will ban the member(s) involved. If that fails to stop the problem, we will have to either discontinue WatchmanCommunity.com or raise the subscription fees to cover the incurred bandwidth cost. Please keep in mind that all videos available here for high speed viewing are also available on YouTube, Sermon Audio and Blip.tv for free viewing / downloading. :)

The site administrator reserves the right to edit or remove posts that do not adhere to the policies and/or violate general proper Internet etiquette.

We ask that you do take the time to review two sections of the Terms of Service that refer to the Watchman Community: “If You Become a Member of a Network” and “Online Conduct for Network Owners and Members” available here: http://watchmancommunity.net/legal/terms.

The below specific and itemized rules not withstanding, all members are expected to participate with the same common every-day social graces used in civilized mixed company. Our desire is to foster an environment of civil decorum that enables our members to discuss prophecy, current events, faith-related, and Christian topics, fellowship and share information without concern over personal attacks or insults.

All posts, comments, system email messages, videos, audio files, images, and other supported content that violate our Membership Guidelines or Terms of Service are subject to action that may include, but is not limited to, edits, removal, or account termination.
