Why state what you believe?

The foundational truths presented in the Holy Bible are designed to have a profound impact on the life of an individual or the functions of an institution (which is, after all, made up of individuals). The statements below are some of the tenants of the Christian Faith that particularly influence the ministry work of Extra Mile Ministries.

Expanded Mission Statement

This particular Ministry was born out of first-hand Missions Experience where I found so many churches in many nations struggling to establish a strong and vibrant fellowship based upon sound doctrine free from politics and having Global revival songs, teachings & five fold ministries available to them. In most third world churches the congregations know nothing of the great power and revival available as the Lord brings the Climax of the Ages to a crescendo. Rom 8:22

Our Pulpits, Psalmists and Lay Leaders need clean hands and a pure, circumcised heart not limited to just talent and open to accountability and fathering so that they can Disciple others. Our God is a God of excellence and when a vessel is a vessel dedicated unto honor and has skilled himself in his/her individual calling predestined before the foundation of the world, how much more shall God reciprocate and visit us in our feeble attempts to meet with Him and Praise and Magnify His Name or spread His Gospel in these last days.

It seems that little teaching, conviction, from living Epistles have preceded explaining the office of the Psalmist, Types of Church Governments and Five Fold Ministry. Pastors are entering into service prior to sending " Judah first " (Jude 1:2, 20:18). Praisers are rushing into service prior to pressing through on behalf of the congregation, meeting once a week, fasting once a week or maybe meeting in prayer 30 minutes early before each service. Without taking the congregation into the Holy of Holies consistently, how will the Bride ever say come (Rev 22:17)? Or a prayer covering be over our congregations as we Sanctuary to be used as a boot camp so that our Business, families, Homes prosper to help fund a Bride, a army of Intercessors, High Praisers, Worshipers, Overcomers, Students of the Word who will worship and walk in Spirit and Truth (John 4:23,24), who know their God and do great exploits (Dan 11:32). In this final hour their cry shall spiral to heaven as well pleasing incense to the Lord (Rev 5:8, 8:3-4) and the bowl shall be filled triggering the return of Jesus Christ (Rev 22:17). How bad do you want revival? What price are you willing to pay. Do you have an Excess of Oil to give to those who seek for their lamps?

Revival Congregations give their all. Their Hunger, Holiness and thirst in song, service and diligence in word like the Bereans, allows them to Disciple others from a consecrated and dedicated soul as a burnt offering (Rom 12:1).

May this Mission Statement impart to you an anointing in getting involved. There needs to be a uniform global awakening to the different levels or types of Revival, and easy access to all God is saying and doing.
