Principles of Ministry
- Freedom of Religion:
The Ministry of a Chaplain includes the principle of freedom of religion as embodied in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.
- Religious Equitability:
Religious observance shall be equitable, free, and voluntary.
No deliberate intent and/or program of coercion may be introduced to win a person to one’s own religious affiliation. This does not prevent the freedom of expression and the freewill right of an individual to change his/her religious affiliation.
Chaplain works interdenominationally without neglecting the care for the members of his/her own religious affiliation.
- Respect for diversity:
A Chaplain shall respect diversity in religion, creed, culture and colour.
