1. Local Church Directed Paradigm
We believe in the centrality of the local church in life and ministry. The church needs to take the primary role in the disciplining and training of its people to minister and lead. As such, the church ministry will be self-sustaining and reproductive.
2. Servant Leadership
We believe that the church does not have to follow the “professionalization” trend of the world. God uses the common to do the uncommon. He has gifted every believer, and when everyone uses his or her unique giftedness, the church is an unstoppable force.
3. Team Ministry and Leadership
When His servants work together in teams, they accomplish much more. We believe that God often gives leaders a complementary set of leadership skills. The goal is to train all leaders how to excel in their giftedness, and to marginalize their weaknesses by working in teams.
4. Discipleship Training Model
We believe that programs do not train leaders. Leaders do. We therefore follow the discipleship model for leadership training as well. Our leadership training incorporates all 3 components of leadership, which is best used in a one-on-one mentorship relationship: (a) knowledge, (b) skills, and (c) character.
We believe in the Triune-God. The Father (Romans 1. 7), God the Son (Romans 9. 5), and the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 3. 16), being one God eternally existent in three persons (Matthew 28. 19), equal in all attributes (John 10. 30), but different in their roles.
God the Father
The Father’s distinct role in the trinity is that of exercising His will or sovereign plan, and being the recipient of all prayers. He is the source of all blessings, curses, and chastisement. He is also the source of judgment until the day of Jesus Christ. God the Father is the one who draws men to himself unto salvation.
The Holy Spirit is the promised Comforter sent by the Father and the Son, possessing full personality and deity. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He is the agent of the new birth, at which time He baptizes believers into the body of Christ, and His work among believers is that He seals, indwells, fills, guides, and teaches. The sign gifts of prophecy, speaking in tongues, interpretation of tongues, miracles and healing, were powerful indicators in New Testament times whereby the authenticity of the gospel was established on earth but these gifts are not normative for today.
The Fall of Man
God originally created man in His own image and free from sin; but, through the temptation of Satan, man disobeyed the command of God and fell from his original holiness and righteousness; whereby his descendants inherit a nature corrupt and wholly opposed to God and His law, are under condemnation, and are sinners from conception. Now all are born into sin although we are ignorant of our fallen reality until becoming morally are of it.
We Stand Firm
We exist to partner with the local church to Mentor, Mobilize and Multiply its ministry and leadership potential.
Our vision is for local churches to take the primary responsibility for the mentoring and mobilization of its members, resulting in a healthy local church, capable of multiplication through the sending out of servant leaders to launch new churches.
