Proverbs 6:6-9 -“Go to the ant thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep”
We the ministers’ and deacons’ wives of the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Inc., conscious of our heritage and mindful of our responsibility firstly to God, to our husbands and their varying ministries, to our families, to Christ’s Church, and to our generations yet unborn, herewith prayerfully set forth and establish this Constitution of the National (International) Ministers’ and Deacons’ Wives’ Guild, and Amendments thereto, according to the powers and authority granted us by the Legislative Body of the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Inc.

- To move with all haste toward the realization of every known aspect of that vision’
- To redeem and to restore any and all portions of that vision which have been temporarily lost, or which since death, fallen into a state of disrepair; and
In the name of, and under the direction of, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to add to that vision.
