Is their any Biblical basis on people being ordained before they can perform spiritual ceremonies such as baptisms or communion?
Pastor T, I would answer like this. You shall know them by their fruits. I have sat on church boards and voted for people I felt were right for a ministry, and been out voted in favor of an elders family member, and then seen the same ministry practically wither away, because the wrong person was the head. All that, when the Holy Spirit was supposed to be the one choosing, yet man's acceptance overruled God's.
