Your Minister License ID Card
You can become ordained online today, when you order your minister license and ID card.
Your minister identification card certifies that you are a legally ordained and currently licensed minister.
You may use the titles Pastor, Bishop, Deacon, Minister, Preacher, Priest, Priestess, Chaplain, Rabbi or any other title that you wish, except Doctor titles.
- Your ID card is your Minister License, your ID as a Minister, and your small Certificate of Ordination all in one.
- Your minister ID card will show that you are licensed to perform wedding ceremonies, baptisms and funerals.
- Having minister credentials will allow you to perform the wedding ceremony of a friend or relative*. (See note below re Canada)
In addition, If your ministry takes you to hospitals or prisons, you may use the ID card to help you gain admittance to those institutions. You may also use the card to help obtain special parking privileges when they are available to ordained and licensed ministers.
Performing Weddings and Marriage Ceremonies
If you plan to perform marriages for friends or others, we urge you to order our publication "Details of Marriage Laws." This publication contains important information you need before you perform marriages in the United States.
Some states have special requirements and in a very few areas, (such as Nevada) our ministers cannot perform marriages unless they have an actual congregation or perhaps can't perform marriages at all. We suggest you order our publication "Details of Marriage Laws" to be well informed.
Additionally you may or may not be able to perform marriages in other countries.
* For example, our ministers may not perform marriages in Canada where very few churches are allowed to do that.
(To order "Details of Marriage Laws" in USA see Church Documents )
Testimonial from one of our ministers...
Since my becoming a minister of the American Fellowship Church, my life has been spiritually, mentally, and physically changed to a degree whereas I know that there is only one way to go, and that is with God.
Rev. H. W., Virginia
What's on your Minister ID Card....
You may become legally ordained right now by ordering an Ordination ID Card which is also your Minister License.
The ID card serves as your proof of ordination as well as your minister's license.
If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with any of the materials you order from us, you may return them (in original condition) , for a full refund less the $3 shipping and handling fee.
Since all ordinations take place on Sundays, your ID card along with any other materials you order will be mailed to you via the US Postal Service not later than the Monday following receipt. However, we try, but don't promise to have your order in the mail by the day after we receive it.
All orders are processed via secure payment system.
Rev. T. H. Swenson

Such a simple process to complete and the response and service is always fantastic. I continue to renew primarily to officiate wedding ceremonies for close friends and family. Sadly, I have been asked to officiate two funerals, but was so happy I was able to do so.

The procedure was outlined clearly and was completed efficiently and expeditiously. It was a pleasure accomplishing the task so easily.

The best all around. From the process to the delivery, every step was top notch. I'll be performing my first wedding this weekend and am elated that the A.F.C. has allowed me to do so.

Professional looking card, minimalist design, and incredibly quick service. Been a minister for four years and a member of the AFC for two, and I've never looked elsewhere. I've been approved and conducted marriages in four states and counting. The American Fellowship Church is honestly the quickest, most reliable, and simplest way to do it.

I have renewed my license three times now. Each time for a difrent reason. first time to preform my mothers wedding second because I felt the call to but I still did nothing with them. This time I am going to preform my sons wedding and I feel that it is time to take a stand. Help others know what our Father has done for us. as well as to Wake up America help them to know God is here for us and to remember what we stand for. One Nation Under God.

Would that all organizations, religious or commercial, were as customer oriented as your organization. Keep up the good work. The additional information you provide is also a plus.
