Word of Faith Fellowship - Waiver and Release Form

Before becoming an official member of the WOFF family, you need to sign a legal contract that renders the church completely blameless for anything that may happen to you during the course of your involvement with them.

There is even a statement that says, "I understand that in some spiritual atmospheres there may be some mind control involved…"

Quite incredible.

Word of Faith Fellowship - New Member Handout Do's and Don'ts

If you want to become a member of the 'Word of Faith Fellowship' church in Spindale, NC, first you need to be "checked out" and approved by their leader Jane Whaley. Once accepted, you are given the rules. Some of our "favorites" include:

#3 You will be required to smile on command.
#19 Don’t read books that are not approved by leadership.
#50 Don’t complain when the offering plates are passed more than once.
#78 Don’t interview for a job unless it is “under authority”.
#80 Don’t make plans for college unless you have Jane check it out.
#118 Don’t let WOFF children play with children outside of WOFF.
#133 Don’t start a relationship without checking it out with Jane.
#134 Don’t decide who you will marry without checking it out with Jane.
#137 Don’t complain about the list of “dont's”.
#144 Don’t attack those in authority.
#145 Don’t question Jane’s authority to run WOFF.

Lastly, we hope you will be with us for many years to come. Don’t worry about memorizing this list. When you violate a “don’t”, you will be told-“We don’t do that”.
