The Foundations of The Ministry

The Foundational Scripture

Jeremiah 23 : 3 - 4

I Myself will gather the remnant of My flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and will bring them back to their pasture, where they will be fruitful and increase in number. I will place shepherds over them who will tend them, and they will no longer be afraid or terrified, nor will any be missing,” declares the Lord.

The Vision Statement of The Ministry:

"A multitude of Spirit-filled, equipped, and faithful shepherds are gathering, tending, caring, and protecting the Lord’s flock as they grow, bear fruit, and increase in number for God’s glory.”

The Mission Statement Of CSAFMI:

“To prepare, equip, and reproduce Spirit-filled and faithful servants of God who will stand ready to answer the call of the Lord Jesus Christ to shepherd over the flock that He gathers, making certain that none of them are found needy and are missing.”

Statement of Faith

We believe in the Bible.

CSAFMI believes that the Bible consisting of sixty-six (66) books of the Old and New Testaments is the inspired Word of God in their original writings, therefore, the infallible and the absolute authority in all matters of our faith and conduct. (2 Tim. 2:16-17).

We believe in The Divine Trinity

CSAFMI believes that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are three (3) distinct persons who eternally exist and are perfectly united together as One Godhead, one not in number but in unity.

We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ

CSAFMI believes that the Lord Jesus Christ was God in the form of man, just as He has been God from eternity and will always be unto eternity. (John 1:1; Revelation 1:8).

We believe in the Humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ.

CSAFMI believes that the Son, the Second Person in the Divine Trinity, set aside His divine form and took for Himself the form of a man; was conceived of the Holy Spirit, not of human father, and was born of a virgin. (John 1:14; Luke 1:31-35).

We believe in the Saving Work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

CSAFMI believes that the Lord Jesus Christ lived in a sinless life in perfect obedience to the Father, died a sacrificial death once and for all, resurrected bodily, ascended into the right hand of the Father, and forever lives as a great High Priest of all who will believe in His Name. (Romans 8:3-4; Hebrews 10:9-14).

We believe in the Redemption of Man from Sin.

CSAFMI believes that through the sin of the first man, Adam, the whole human race sinned and became eternally lost and condemned. That man cannot be saved through his own work, and his only hope of salvation is solely on the merit of the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. That by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, a man is saved and becomes a new creation in Him, and by that same faith he must live his life to the end. That man forfeits this salvation if he does not remain in Christ Jesus, our Lord. (Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:8-10; Hebrews 6:4-6).

We believe in the Baptism in Water.

CSAFMI believes that every Christian must be baptized in water in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit as a symbol of his salvation through the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:19).

We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

CSAFMI believes that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is an experience distinct from regeneration and is evidenced initially by speaking in other tongues. That this is a promise to all believers for the endowment of power in their witness of Christ and opens the gateway to the fullness of the blessings of the Gospel. (Acts 1:4-8).

We believe in the Rapture of the Saints.

CSAFMI believes that the Lord Jesus Christ will come again for the saints. Those who are dead in Christ will be resurrected and those believers in Him who are still alive will be translated to immortality and they will be caught up together to meet the Lord Jesus Christ in the air and be together with Him forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17).

We believe in the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

CSAFMI believes that the Lord Jesus Christ will return visibly with the saints to the earth to put down rebellion and will rule the world for a thousand years. At its conclusion, the wicked whose names were not written in the Book of Life will be cast into the eternal lake of fire. (Revelation 21:1-15).

We believe in the Lord’s Supper.

CSAFMI believes that believers must celebrate the Lord’s Supper as often as they can in remembrance of Christ’s work of atonement. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).

We believe in the Tithes.

CSAFMI believes that every believer must bring his whole tithe into the storehouse. That this is God’s ordained way for believers, to support His work. (Malachi 3:10).
