These are the principles upon which the ministry is based.
1. Everything we do must point people to the Lordship of Jesus.
The truth of the Word leads people to the One who is Truth.
We must deepen people's relationship with Jesus, not make them dependent on us.
We must see people and situations through eyes of faith.
2. Powerhouse homes flow in the power of the Holy Spirit.
After believers are born-again, there is a second, distinct experience in which the Holy Spirit empowers believers [Acts 1:8].
The power of the Holy Spirit changes the believer from within (Fruit of the Spirit) and flows out through the believer (Gifts of the Spirit).
Lasting change comes spiritually, not intellectually.
3. Marriage is a covenant relationship.
It reflects the covenant relationship between Jesus and the Church.
Each covenant partner agrees to be faithful no matter what the other one does.
It is unconditional.
It is until death.
4. Marriage between a man and a woman is the basis for God's plan for family.
God intends for family to produce healthy sons and daughters in the image of their Father.
All aspects of family life flow from and relate back to the marriage relationship.
Addressing family issues must include developing a healthy marriage.
5. We are to make disciples of all nations.
Discipling is more than disseminating information.
Discipling includes training, modelling and accountability.
Modelling is a transparent demonstration of process rather than perfection in the lives of the disciplers.
Discipling is based in relationship.
6. We are to produce fruit with the seed of reproducibility.
We are all to bear fruit and multiply.
Our role in the earth is to give to others what God gives to us.
Although gifts and talents of people vary, others must be able to duplicate each model produced.
Everyone who ministers in MMI should be making disciples at the same time.
7. When a couple marries, their individual call and destiny are blended together.
Both husband and wife are equally called of God.
We are responsible to seek out those who will disciple us in our call.
Each spouse needs to respect, honour, and nurture the gifts and talents of the other.
Couples need to be taught how to blend their gifts and talents to equip them in the synergism of a one-flesh team.
8. Homes are points of out-reach to a lost world.
Marriage and family reflect God's relationship to His Church.
MMI leaders are ordinary couples demonstrating the power of God in our homes, jobs, and lives.
We are to teach couples how to reach their neighbourhoods, communities, and other spheres of influence.
9. God views families generationally.
Decisions and actions of one generation affect successive ones.
One generation has the power in Jesus to stop generational curses.
One generation has the ability to perpetuate blessings generationally.
Christians must think and plan generationally.
10. We are an army.
We have an objective and a mission.
We need to honour spiritual authority to be in spiritual authority.
We need to recognize and honour the different roles of those serving in the army.
We must be dedicated to fighting until we see victory manifested.
We are not individual soldiers who get to pick and choose with whom, when and where we will serve.
