Announcing... The Legacy of Elijah!!

Stc95

Tribe of Judah Guild Wars Chapter Leader
It is my pleasure to announce the Guild Wars 2 guild, Legacy of Elijah! Below are official statements and policies regarding LoE. Questions, comments, suggestions, are all highly welcomed and encouraged. While I would like the "Statement" statements to be set in stone, everything is open for discussion and subject to change. This guild is for you and as such you have a say. Please forgive me if I have forgotten anything we have previously talked about. The next step you can look forward to is a restructuring of the Guild Wars Chapter forums. Enjoy!

Legacy of Elijah

Legacy: Anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor. Inheritance.

Elijah the Prophet:
The prophet Elijah was a prophet to Israel (Samaria) in the 9th century BC. His name, Eliyahu, means “Yahweh is my God.” Elijah is recorded to have restored the life of a young boy, battled against the many prophets of the much popular Baal, called down fire from Heaven, brought rain to a famished Israel, parted the Jordan river, and taken to Heaven in a whirlwind. Malachi prophesied that Elijah would return before “the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord” (4.5). He is greatly revered in Jewish culture and many people in the New Testament compared both John the Baptist and Jesus with Elijah. Furthermore, Elijah, along with Moses, appears during the Transfiguration of Jesus. His spirit, his legacy, is one of power and strength. Elijah fought against the prevailing culture and worship of Baal and called kings to return to the God of Israel. As his spirit was passed to his student Elisha, so have we inherited a legacy to build the Kingdom and prepare hearts and minds for Jesus. This is the Legacy of Elijah.

Mission Statement:
To foster a community of encouragement, edification, and passion for Jesus Christ in Guild Wars 2 for fellow brothers and sisters. It is our goal to provide a safe and friendly environment for Christian Guild Wars 2 players and to encourage and support members in both their journey with Christ and their Guild Wars 2 journey.

Vision Statement:
To become the most comprehensive and prominent Christian guild in Guild Wars 2 while adhering to our mission statement and the plan God has for us.

Statement of Belief:
We believe in a triune God consisting of the Father, the Holy Spirit, and the Son, Jesus Christ, born of a virgin, as the only-begotten son of God who became man, was crucified for us and rose three days later and is the only way to salvation as revealed through His Word, the inerrant and complete Bible.

Who We Are:
Legacy of Elijah is a non-denominational Christian guild in Guild Wars 2 and a chapter of the Tribe of Judah, an online Christian Community. We are a continuation of the Spirit of Elijah guild and an amalgamation of its alliance from the original Guild Wars. We strive to be a friendly, helpful community to all those who can agree with our belief statement and abide by the code of conduct.

Code of Conduct

All Legacy of Elijah members must abide by the Code of Conduct. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the guild. Members agree to the Code of Conduct upon entering the guild. The Code of Conduct may be changed as circumstances require.

Legacy of Elijah members agree to:

Play with Integrity – “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1st Cor. 10.31
  • Members will adhere to the EULA of Guild Wars 2 as set by Arena Net and will refrain from the use of bots or third party software, and the unauthorized sale/purchase of in-game currency or items for real world money.
  • Members will model good sportsmanship at all times and maintain a spirit of friendliness and composure in both cooperative and competitive activities.
  • Members will not seek charity from other members. While members are encouraged to freely assist each other, members will not abuse the giving of others.
Speak Life – “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Eph. 4.29
  • Members will remain respectful, in agreement and disagreement, to both members and guild leadership.
  • Members are allowed, and encouraged, to debate, however, the use of the forums is encouraged for such conversations.
  • Members will refrain from spamming any message.
  • Members will not swear or use vulgar language when communicating within the guild. This includes, but not limited to, any word filtered by Guild Wars 2's chat filter on the highest setting, using the Lord's name in vain, and using slang, euphemisms, or abbreviations to circumvent the chat filters.
Remain Rooted – “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Col. 3.2
  • Legacy of Elijah is not a replacement for daily devotions, prayer, church, or fellowship with others.
  • Members will place Guild Wars 2 and the Legacy of Elijah guild as a lower priority than personal walks with Jesus, church, family, job/education, and friends.
Respect Leadership – “Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.” 1 Thes. 5.12-13
  • Members will agree to remain respectful and courteous to those in guild leadership positions.
  • Officers are to be deferred to in any disagreement. Hostility and disrespect towards officers will not be tolerated.
  • Members can appeal to the guild leader if they believe they have been wronged by an officer. The guild leader will then confer with the officers and pass a final judgment. His/her word will be final.

Recruitment Policies:
Legacy of Elijah is a Christian guild designed to help and support Christians. As such, typically Christians are only subject for admittance to the guild. However, non-Christians may be recruited if said recruit can find a "sponsor" from within the guild already who can vouch for the integrity of the recruit. The sponsor will then be held responsible for the conduct of the recruit. As always, every member, Christian or otherwise, must adhere to the Legacy of Elijah Code of Conduct.

Recruitment Method
To join the Legacy of Elijah:
1. Register with the Tribe of Judah (toj.cc)
2. Once processed, contact an officer and give him/her your Tribe of Judah name and your in-game name and, if necessary, the in-game name of your sponsor.
Registering with the Christian Gamers Alliance Forums can assist with step 2. (http://www.cgalliance.org/forums/register.php)​


Legacy of Elijah, Tribe of Judah, and Christian Gamers Alliance
The Tribe of Judah is a Christian community of gamers founded in May 1999 by Tek7. The Tribe of Judah, as emphasized by Tek7, is first and foremost an online Christian community before it is a gaming community. ToJ serves its members across many games through its various chapters. The Guild Wars chapter is where Legacy of Elijah falls under. Other such chapters include World of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Team Fortress 2. The Tribe of Judah is affiliated with the Christian Gamers Alliance which was founded by Jammer7 and Tek7 in 2001 as an umbrella organization for Christian gaming communities. They, and other Christian gaming groups realized that they were doing many of the same things. Rather than operate independently from one another, Jammer7 and Tek7 created the Christian Gamers Alliance to pool resources and serve God and the gaming community at large more effectively. Jammer7 first presided over CGA until his resignation in December of 2002 where he appointed Tek7 as CGA President. Tek7 has served as CGA president since. CGA affiliates include the Tribe of Judah, Christ-Centered Gamer, and Christian Crew.

LoE included?

Hey, there was a poll put up recently to include the new LoE with the facebook group of SoE and SOE. ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/SOEGuildWars/ )If you're on facebook and haven't joined this group it's the unofficial official GW group please join! Rusty has been running the group and not very many have joined but it's got my vote to become the official GW ToJ group on facebook. Forums seem to be forgotten in the new social media world but facebook is easy too keep up to date with folks . With that in mind if you're on facebook you probably visit there more than the forums so why not get connected to your fellow guild mates!
