Core Values


Our Core Values are the principles upon which the ministry is based:

  • They are unchangeable.
  • They determine the form and the flow of ministry.
  • They determine what is negotiable and what is not.
  • They help people identify their call.
  • They are the basis for reproducibility.

1. EVERYTHING WE DO MUST POINT PEOPLE TO THE LORDSHIP OF JESUS.

  • Jesus is the only way to the Father and to eternal life.
  • Truth of the Word leads people to the One who is Truth.
  • We must deepen people's relationship with Jesus, not make them dependent upon us.
  • See people and situations through eyes of faith.

2. POWERHOUSE HOMES FLOW IN THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

  • The power of the Holy Spirit changes the believer from within and then flows outward to others.

3. MARRIAGE IS A COVENANT RELATIONSHIP.

  • Marriage relationship and commitment is to reflect the Lord's covenant relationship with His Church.

4. MARRIAGE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN IS THE BASIS FOR GOD'S PLAN FOR FAMILY.

  • God established marriage in the Garden of Eden with a man and a woman and gave us His blueprint.
  • 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 on relationship.

6. WE ARE TO PRODUCE FRUIT WITH THE SEED OF REPRODUCIBILITY.

  • Our goal is not to make others dependent on us but rather teach them to develop a deepening relationship with the Lord and reach out to others in His name.
  • We are all to bear fruit and multiply.
  • Our role on 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 2=1 Marriage Ministries 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.
  • MFL 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 need to be obedient to the directions of the Lord for our lives, going where He says to go and doing what He says to do.
