International Apostolic Ministries is affectionately called by the acronym IAM.
International Apostolic Ministries is not a denomination, but rather, a spiritual family or tribe. We believe there is great strength in unified diversity. We reject the notion of hierarchical control in the Church. Rather, we believe the “Church” was super-empossed upon and over what Jesus Christ meant to be the “Ecclesia.” We believe that the Ecclesia must be structured around the anointing and divinely orchestrated relationships and unified purpose, for apart from this, there is no divine life.
Though we are not “non-denomenational” we like to look at ourselves as “inter-denominational.” That is, we are not demonstrating against denominations of the Church nor are we exalting our views above the present day Church. We can see a clear path to what Jesus Christ alway meant for His Ecclesia.
The “Ecclesia” has authoritative application upon the earth by every believer. Sickness, disease, traumas, poverty, and wrecked lives, succumb to the authority of heaven displayed by the true Ecclesia, the everyday believer who is filled with the Spirit of God. Thus, the false authority and the hierarchical controls of the self appointed few is not what Jesus meant for the children of God.
Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Shepherds & Teachers, were given by Jesus Christ to “Equip” the children of God and not to lord over them. By “equipping” these (5-Fold Ministers) give applicable authority from heaven over the works of the evil one who destroys.
So, we can see that a new day is dawning in the Church of Jesus Christ. “The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings!” The flickering flames of revival are being fanned by the Holy Spirit into a blazing inferno as God invades the hearts of His people and nations are being transformed.
We seek to raise up spiritual fathers who release the people of God into their destiny, not oligarchs who dictate, own and control. We seek to build up the local Church/Ecclesia through apostolic and prophetic impartation, divine revelation and dynamic activation.
We are not to be “ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation.” When we unashamedly preach the Gospel of Christ and have a relationship with the anointings and the power of the Holy Spirit, our faith is energized by love and unity. We build relationships with others that have the like passion for Jesus as we do.
It is advisable to relate to an organization of people, churches and ministries who have a passion for the same things. To enter into functional covenant with others enables you to further your ministry and life into nations in many ways that would be impossible for you to do independently.
Since the Church is founded upon apostles and prophets, there is spiritual insight, discipline and protection when relating to the apostles and prophets of your generation. There is therefore a need for “Apostolic alignment” without ungodly controls. Just as a healthy family has an alignment under a father and that father sets a path and pace for the family to journey in its destiny, so apostles & prophets lead us along the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
As a tribe of peoples, we know who we are, we are anointed as a spiritual family, a tribe, we have the character of Judah, the forerunner, the warrior tribe who lays down his life for the other tribes. We must relate most closely with the Levi’s and the Benjamin’s in order to see the will of the Father of lights being done fully upon the earth.
Thus, we are high praisers and warriors of the strategic kind. We are history makers and we glorify the works and the wonders of our King, Jesus Christ!
Deep within the heart of many Christ believers today is arising a sound. What began as a small whisper is rapidly rising to a crescendo which cannot be ignored. It is a yearning for more. It is a cry for liberty. It is a resilient, even obstinate insistence that the Church undergo this major transformation to the authoritative force that Jesus meant for the Ecclesia to be. It is the sound of war. War against the evil one. “For this purpose the Son of God was made manifest, to destroy the works of the evil one…”
Having begun in the Spirit, we will not trust in the works of the flesh. We are seeking a new way, a better way — the Way of the Kingdom. Our journey.
IAM was birthed out of the fires of revival, confirmed by the revelation of the Word of God, and is driven by a passion to build the Kingdom of God. International Apostolic Ministries is seeking those who have heard such a call of the Spirit. We are laboring to enter functional relationship with those who feel called to bring revival and reformation to the Christ believers around the globe for the establishing of Ecclesia into the hearts of all believers and the making of “disciples of all nations.”
The Holy Spirit is moving powerfully in the hearts of a new generation. These are those who are not willing to be satisfied with anything less than the very glory of heaven. No longer will they give themselves to man’s efforts to make a name for himself. They will not rest until the knowledge of the glory of the Lord fills the entire earth, even as the waters cover the sea.
I. A. M. is a tribe, an apostolic network, a spiritual family, and an equipping task force, that has vision for a great journey. Like Judah we will lead the battle for the rest of our brethren into the victory. For, “Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.” Malachi 4:5 & 6
