The West Ohio Christian Chamber of Commerce (WOCC) has established a Code of Ethics that all members agree to sign and embrace for their personal, business and professional lives. This Code of Ethics embraces Biblical principles of conduct and holds every member and the corporate organization accountable to those life principles. It is designed to bring glory to Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God while ensuring excellence, accountability, and trust in member relationships, business practices and community advancement.

  1. I will conduct my personal life, and my business and professional affairs in a Biblical and Christ-like manner that is above reproach. I will conduct myself and my speech in such a way to bring glory and pleasure to the Lord Jesus Christ and encourage all others to do likewise.
  2. I will pursue a level of excellence in all business/professional/personal matters so that Jesus Christ is always honorably reflected and every endeavor to which I am committed is seen to be a benefit to all.
  3. I believe in the principle of honor and I will always honor parents and family, those in authority over my life, peers, and community by affirming their value and providing them the best of who I am and what I have.
  4. As a loyal member of the WOCC, I will fulfill Jesus’ mandate of servanthood to my family, my church, my employer/business/profession, my community and the West Ohio Christian Chamber of Commerce.
  5. I will not make public statements in any form to any media that reflects the official policy posture (private or public) of the West Ohio Christian Chamber of Commerce, but reserve that right to the WOCC leadership.
  6. I will always speak the truth in love with my counsel to the betterment of others and not for personal benefit or advancement.
  7. I will never betray a shared confidence entrusted to me by another.
  8. When I am in conflict or disagreement with any member of WOCC or of a personal/business/professional relationship, I will follow the principles and protocol set forth in Scripture and the by-laws of the WOCC.
  9. I will submit to spiritual, business, and government authority as is appropriate to my relationship with those leaders while refraining from unnecessary criticism of them.
  10. I will refrain from sexual misconduct in all my relationships and maintain a sexual lifestyle that is behaviorally consistent with the Scriptures in all regards.
  11. I will hold myself accountable to and honor with personal integrity all of my business/professional/personal obligations to my church, vendors, customers/clients, neighbors, and community.

I understand that failure to abide by this code of ethics may result in counsel, loss of WOCC benefits, removal from committee or leadership roles, and or dismissal from Chamber membership.
