Accountability is an important factor in maintaining strength and stability in both our personal lives and in the life of our local church, churches and ministries.
The Heart of the Matter
At All Peoples Church we believe that genuine accountability is a matter of the heart. Genuine accountability, is first of all being true to God, to one's self, to one's family, and to the people we serve. If one cannot be true in these areas, it is likely that any other form of accountability will not hold for long.
Having said this, we also believe in setting and being yielded to appropriate accountability structures, so that there will be no room for any reproach being brought to the name of the Lord or His ministry.
