To join LNI, a leader needs to connect with a credentialed member of LNI. They can then apply to join LNI, accepting the Doctrine, Values, Vision and Mission of LNI. An application form must be completed and submitted for approval by an acknowledged senior leader of LNI. Membership needs to be renewed each year and pastors are issued with a 'pastor card' every two years. There is an annual administration fee, which varies according to the economic locality. When pastors are credentialed through LNI they also receive a LNI 'certificate of recognition.'
