This essay affirms that clergy ethics is the resultant life and personal activity

which are derived from a transformed character, developed and shaped by

faithful obedience to the practical instruction concerning relational responsibilities

found in the teachings of Jesus and the apostles, and integrated into a

life of integrity which gives credibility to the Christian message and the viability

of the New Testament Church. By sketching some the New Testaments promises

of transformation as the work of God in the life of a believer and identifying

a sampling of the admonitions and concrete teachings found in the Gospels

and the Epistles which are to be practiced by the follower of Jesus Christ, I seek

to show how the ethics of the Christian minister can attest to the validity of

his message rather than be a reason to reject or ignore the Christian message.

Offered as a challenge to those of us who dare to preach or teach new life in

Christ and the possibility of an authentic New Testament church, this essay

seeks to call preachers and church leaders to purposefully live in a way which

will authenticate the Gospel for the 21st century and be a tool for contemporary

evangelism.
