Divinely Inspired Ministry International

Vision Statement

We as the body of Christ will Come into the knowledge of Christ, Grow in Maturity of Christ, and Go out and make Disciples of Christ. We are to Come, Grow, and Go. We are to become a multiplication center of evangelism and church planting using our entire God given resources to maximize our impact upon those we serve.

 

Mission statement

We exist as an apostolic hub within the body of Christ for the people of God to experience intimacy with God through the ministry of worship, preaching, teaching, and fellowship with other believers. Believers will be encouraged, edified, and equipped to continue on within their Christian journeys to become mature Disciples of Christ that will go out and make disciples of through effective evangelism of sharing the Gospel. Our main goal is that of making mature disciples of Jesus Christ through Kingdom teaching and preaching in a multi-cultural family atmosphere. The disciples are to grow into maturity in Christ by learning key biblical principles that will stimulate growth, and exercising their individual measures of faith by ministering to the needs of those within the church, the local community, and the world around.

 

Statement of Faith

We believe that there is one triune God eternally existing as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19). Jesus Christ is God the Son and is fully God and fully man (Philippians 2:5-8). Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin (Matthew 1:18 & 23), led a sinless life, took on Himself all our sins (Romans 5:8-9), died on the cross, and rose again (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), and is seated at the right hand of the Father as our mediator (Hebrews 9:15) and advocate (1 John 2:1). The Bible is God’s Word, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 3:16-17), and is authoritative on all matters (2 Peter 1:20-21). All people sin and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) and will face eternal separation from God unless they come into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17). Salvation is a free gift from God (Ephesians 2:8-9) that can only be received through grace by faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12, Galatians 2:16).

God works through the members of His church to evangelize the lost and teach believers to obey His commands (Matthew 28:18-20). Churches are open to and accepting of all people, offering God’s love and redemption to each person without prejudice or condemnation (John 3:16-18). However, in their efforts to reach out, churches must take care to uphold the Word of God, and not engage in moral compromise (Romans 12:2) or affirm any sin such as sexual immorality, idolatry, adultery, homosexuality, stealing, greed, drunkenness, slander, swindling (1 Corinthians 6:9-10), murder, strife, deceit, malice, gossip, (Romans 1:21-32), witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, factions, or envy (Galatians 5:19-21). God’s people are called to holiness in all aspects of life (Galatians 5:22-25), with the goal of being conformed to the image of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Romans 8:29). We believe in the sanctity of marriage being between one man and one woman.

 

Divinely Inspired Ministry International operates within the five-fold office governance of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher (Ephesians 4:11). We emphasize the importance of practicing key spiritual disciplines to include baptism immersion by water, communion, Bible Intake, Worship, Praise, prayer, corporate fellowship, and community outreach locally, nationally, and internationally.
