Since the church, which is the body of Christ, is designed by God to work together in unity, the highest form of accountability is necessary. Each member of The International Fellowship of Ministries is accountable for their relationships, their actions, their speech, their lifestyles and their commitments. We believe that we are accountable not only to our Lord and Savior, but also to our church leaders, our peers, our spouses and family, and to those whom we serve!
We will strive to be an example to all of Biblical moral excellence, staying far away from even the appearance of evil. Our goal is to be conformed to the image of Christ, avoiding legalism and at the same time recognizing that grace leads us to holiness, and displaying of the fruit of the Spirit.
We will conduct ourselves in the highest ethical manner in all relationships. We will be men and women of our word.
We are committed to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength, and love our neighbor as ourselves. Establishing a love relationship with the Lord our God, empowers us to obey His every command. Jesus said if you love me you will keep my commandments. Because of His abiding love we are able obey His command to “love one another as I have loved you.” We believe it is important that each person continually develop their love relationship with the Lord and walk in love with their neighbor. We seek to develop an “unoffendable” heart.
We agree that, “the just shall live by faith” for without faith it is impossible to please God. We are committed to giving the Word of God first place and utmost authority in our lives. We see a deep rich fellowship with the Father as foundational to a life of faith.
We see the Kingdom of God as the rule of God in Christ- both present and future. We are here to proclaim and demonstrate His Kingdom. This Kingdom is not in Word only, but also in power. We believe that the gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the earth and then the end will come.
We have a Covenant-making, Covenant-keeping God. Therefore we are a Covenant-minded people seeking to relate to other covenant-minded people. Marriage and Family Covenant responsibilities are the “proving ground” for ministry service. Strong marriages and strong families make a strong ministry.
Hungry for God
The pursuit of God Himself is our driving passion. We embrace Paul’s heart’s cry “that I might know Him.”
Anointing and Character
Because of our hunger for God, we are on a quest for the strongest possible anointing to do the works of Christ. We understand that anointing without sufficient character has led many to shipwreck. We therefore put a high priority on character development.
We believe that as Christians we must aggressively confront the kingdom of darkness, and demonstrate the superiority of the Kingdom of God. We will not be passive, but seek to emulate the Godly leaders who have gone before us.
We believe servant leaders invest themselves in others and lead by example. Jesus, the greatest example of “Servant Leadership” said, “He who would be greatest among you, let him be the servant of all.”
Spiritual Fathers & Mothers
Ministries as they mature, nurture and invest themselves in other ministries to help them reach their full potential and destiny. We acknowledge that we teach what we know, but we reproduce who we are, therefore we want to pass the torch to the next generation, while we continue to grow and mature ourselves.
We believe in the Great Commission, that the gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the earth and then the end will come. We are committed to supporting world missions by going to the nations, taking teams to the nations, sending people to the nations and promoting unity as we go.
