We stand for Christ-centered, morally sound, Biblical Christianity which comprises the Christian faith: the faith and practice of the Apostles and the early Disciples of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We heed the call from our Lord Jesus Christ: "And he said to them, Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15). Whatever we have of the world in our hands, our care must be to keep it out of our hearts, lest it come between us and Christ. "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8).
We are a Christian Missionary Church body. Our mission is to freely share the love and Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ with people anywhere and any-time. We seek to bring courage, faith, hope and love to people with a variety of daily life issues.
Love Focus International Association is organized for and dedicated to carrying out the principles of our faith according to the requirements governing the creation of institutions of the faith.
This body is authorized and empowered to ordain experienced Christian men and women of good moral conduct, who live a godly life and abide by our Statement of Faith to conduct ministerial services in the church, in nonreligious organizations and in communities assigned or designated by this church body. According to John 15:16, our Lord Jesus Christ said, "You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you."
The Spiritual Leader of this church is the overseer of its affairs and interpretive authority of the Bible's meaning and application for the ministry.
We give hope to people in Africa trapped in the cycle of poverty by providing love focused self help initiatives for sustainable development in poor rural communities of Africa. Sustainable development will need to be inclusive and take special care of the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable in Africa. Our Christian love comes from the Holy Spirit according to (Galatians 5:22). The Bible speaks about love as an action and attitude, not just an emotion. We are instructed to "bear one another’s burdens, and thus fulfill the law of CHRIST” (Galatians 6:2).
Above all these:
We put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. True love must be expressed in action, doing something good to the best interest of others. "Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." (Matthew 25:34-37).
We operate as a Church body with Association Member Churches. Association Member Churches means a church, begun and established by an Ordained Minister of Love Focus International Association holding Active Status, to serve his or her local community. Upon ordination, a minister of Love Focus International Association forms an Associate Member Church, the congregation of which shall comprise the family, friends, and community members with whom the Minister gathers frequently in form of Fellowship, Prayer, Worship and Bible Study. Association Member Churches are in fellowship to promote the mission of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth with focus on love in action. Ordination Information Package
