12 PENTECOSTAL ASSEMBLIES OF THE WEST INDIES POLICY MANUALSECTION 11.1 ForewordPAWI’s Policy manual has been prepared as a guide to all who serve in the fellowship, particularly at leadershiplevels. The purpose of this Manual is to aid in the effective and efficient functioning of staff, ministry groups andchurch members; to create a culture of “order” through principles and regulations that guide the operations of thefellowship, and provide a framework for leaders to assist in sound decision-making.This manual also serves as an easy and quick reference for operational guidelines to bring the organizationaland operational structure of PAWI together in a succinct manner. The document establishes a consistent basefrom which to manage all the operations of PAWI. Wherever conflicts may arise regarding doctrine, philosophyof ministry, procedure and organizational structure, this document will assist in addressing and resolving suchconflicts. Notwithstanding this, PAWI’s Constitution and Bylaws will always take precedent over other contentfound in this manual.Unless otherwise stated, the contents of this Manual will be considered standard policy by the fellowship and isintended for wide-spread use across the fellowship to regulate its operations.The Policy Manual is consistent with the ideals of PAWI’s Strategic Plan (2014-2019) towards building a more robustorganization, one that is able to sustain higher levels of performance in the dynamic environment in which weoperate. As such, PAWI proposes to review the contents of this Manual annually to ensure it remains relevant tothe changing needs of the Fellowship.1.2 Preface From the General AdministratorThe Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies International, from its inception, sought to give guidance toinexperienced ministers in areas of practical ministry. This manual has done that in a meaningful way. It coverstopics such as etiquette, organizational branding, disciplinary procedures, etc. The creation of this manual,commissioned by the General Executive and compiled by Miss. Valerie Charles in collaboration with seniorministers have created a manual of great worth. The manual has unearthed documents from various sources thatexisted in the organization through its districts (not published or publicly recognized) and stylistically orderedthem for use in the multicultural diaspora called the Caribbean.Compilation of the manual has allowed to unearth the rich heritage and long standing biblical standards andtraditions of PAWI that has given meaning to ministers and congregants alike. The ordination procedure that wascreated by the North East Trinidad District to the disciplinary procedure that was created by a minister as partof treating with matters in the local church he pastored the quest to find relevant documents for this manualwas both exciting and rewarding. It continues to reveal the height PAWI has grown in the hundred years of itsexistence.The authors’ goal has been to try to make their contributions as readable as possible. They have avoidedprofessional language as far as possible and provided concrete examples to illustrate the discussion. They havealso sought to group common themes together to further ease referencing. The numbering of the manual makesfor ease of finding anything both by section and page.The Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies looks forward with great anticipation and hope, delivering thegospel to the world without compromise or conflict. We hope that this manual helps in managing the process ofmanifesting the will of Jesus Christ wherever this great organization extends its borders.Rev. Nolan WarnerGeneral Administrator

PENTECOSTAL ASSEMBLIES OF THE WEST INDIES POLICY MANUAL 131.3 Vision & Mission Statementsfor othersVISION1.5 Statement of FaithTo be a vibrant, global organization, built upon soundbiblical truths and unity, which utilizes its resources toserve all people.MISSION We Believe the Holy Scriptures, both Old andNew Testaments, are the divinely inspired Wordof God without error in the original writings, andthe final authority for all Christian faith and life (IITimothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21).PAWI exists to fulfil the purpose of God by transformingpeople and communities everywhere, by the gospel ofJesus Christ, through the power and manifestation ofthe Holy Spirit for the Glory of God. We Believe in one God, infinite, perfect andeternally existent in three persons, Father, Sonand Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19; I Peter1:2; II Corinthians 13:14).1.4 Core ValuesINTEGRITYWe shall conduct ourselves and the business of PAWIwith the highest integrity and uprightness of heartACCOUNTABILITYWe shall take full responsibility for our actions anddecisions and will be answerable for their resultingconsequencesLOYALTYWe shall be loyal to our commitment and obligation toGod and to our duties and responsibilitiesGODLINESSWe shall demonstrate Godliness through ouradherence to the virtues of GodFAITHWe shall rely on and trust the Word of God as thedetermining factor for every decision we makeFEAR OF GODWe shall live daily in the fear and reverence of GodRESPECTWe shall demonstrate utmost respect for ourselves and We Believe in the virgin birth of the Lord JesusChrist, His unqualified deity, His sinless humanity,the eternal all-sufficiency of His atoning death,His bodily resurrection and His ascension to HisFather’s right hand (I Corinthians 15:3-4; John 1:1,20:24-29; Hebrews 4:15; I Timothy 2:5; Revelation20:1-6). We Believe in the personal and imminent, pretribulation return of Jesus Christ for His church,i.e. the rapture; the pre-millennial return of JesusChrist with His church, and His millennial reignon earth (Hebrews 9:28; I Thessalonians 4:13-18;Revelation 20:1-6; I Corinthians 15:51; Philippians3:20-21; Titus 2:13). We Believe that justification is a judicial act of Godon the believer’s behalf solely through faith inChrist’s death and resurrection (Romans 3:24,26;4:18-25; 5:1; I Corinthians 6:11; Galatians 3:24). We Believe that man was created in the image ofGod but fell into sin and is under condemnation,and that it is only through the atoning workof the Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration bythe Holy Spirit that salvation can be obtained(Genesis 1:26-27; 2:17; 3:1-13; John 14:6; Acts4:12; I Timothy 2:5-6). We Believe that water Baptism by immersion, andthe Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observedby the church during the present age (Matthew28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; I Corinthians 11:1734). We Believe that the Christian life involvesdiscipleship, obedience to the Word of God,holiness, witness and service through the powerof the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16;Acts 1:8; 2:38; II Corinthians 6:14-18; 7:1) . We Believe in the baptism with the Holy Spirit

14 PAWI POLICY AND PROCEDURAL MANUALwith the initial physical evidence of speaking inother tongues (Acts 2:4; 4:31; 10:46; I Corinthians12:13-14; Ephesians 5:18). We Believe in the demonstration of the gifts ofthe Spirit, and the manifestation of the fruit of theSpirit (Galatians 5:22-23). We Believe in the divine healing of the humanbody as provided for in the atonement, whichis a privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:4,5; James5:14,15). We Believe in Heaven as the eternal inheritanceof the believers, and in Hell and the Lake of Fire asthe place of eternal doom for the devil, his angels,and all unbelievers (John 14:1-3; Revelation20:10-15, 21:1-6). We Believe that the true Church consists of allwho through faith in Jesus Christ have beenregenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united inthe Body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:22; 4:3-6). We Believe in and practice the five-fold Ministriesand the supporting Ministries to be operationalin the Church (Ephesians 4:11-13).1.6 Purpose of DocumentThe Policies outlined in this document are generalstatements of direction and purpose of PAWI that allowusers to exercise good judgment in the daily operationof all arms of the fellowship as well as promote theefficient use of resources throughout the fellowship.Policies explain what and why things are done.
