The Foundations International Ministries standard for ethics and integrity regarding personal character and ministry will be based on the principals outlined in Holy Scriptures. There is no place for hatred, variance, gossip, lying, stealing or the bigotry of being a respecter of persons by race, economic status, age or whether you are male or female.  We agree that prayer, forbearance, honor, and love will be preeminent in all we do.  We will strive to promote unity in the Body of Christ, being careful of our attitudes of others who serve our Lord. In humility and servanthood we ask Christ our Lord to reign in our hearts and that we are led by the Holy Spirit in all we do.


To submit to leadership as the leadership serves and submits themselves to our Lord Jesus Christ, each of us willingly laying down our lives that Christ might live in us.  Submission is not a place of subservient attitudes or actions but the willingness to be in accountability. Every member must be a giver to the Body of Christ, setting the example of integrity in finances and character.


The relationships we have with one another is a Godly relationship born out of our love and service to Christ. We are to honor these relationships as such, thereby doing nothing that would dishonor the name of Christ, Foundations International Ministries, its leaders or members. Our mutual vision is to be an example of Christ, an emissary of His love and power to the world.

Tenets of Faith

That the Bible is the inspired Word of God: II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21

God is triune: The Godhead is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, eternally existent.  I John 5:6-8

The fall of man: Man fell into sin through voluntary disobedience to God. Gen.1:26; Romans: 3:10
Jesus is the Son of God, born of a virgin, crucified on the cross for the forgiveness of sin, rose from the grave and ascended to sit at the right hand of the Father.  Luke 1: 26-35, 22:69; Romans14:9 

Eternal Life & Salvation: Restored in the right relationship to God, only by grace in belief and confession in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  John 3:16; Matthew 24:13; II.Cor.7:10; Romans 5:8
Celebration of the Lord's Supper:  I Corinthians 11:24-34; Luke 22:19-20

Water Baptism, for every believer in Christ: An outward witness to in the inner work.  Mat.28:19
Baptism of in the Holy Spirit: Evident in the lives of believers by fruit, giftings, and speaking in tongues.  Acts 2:4, 8, 10; Romans 12; I Corinthians 12.    

Sanctification: A progressive work of grace in the life of believers, challenging us to seek and pray for lives that manifest Christ in us (holiness).  II Cor.3:18

Divine Healing and Deliverance, purchased for us on the cross by Christ.  By Him we are healed, delivered from sickness, death and the devil.  Mark 16:18; James 5:14-15; Luke 10:19-20.

The Church & Spiritual Government: Biblical government is not the world’s government or the traditions of men. Christ is the head and cornerstone of our government / the church. The apostles and prophets are foundational in building the church and all the five-fold offices are operational to SERVE and mature the body of Christ, the church.  THE CHURCH IS NOT A BUILDING BUT HIS PEOPLE. Ephesians chapters 1, 2 and 4, book of Acts and every Epistle.

Ministry: The Holy Spirit calls and equips men and women to serve the Body of Christ and reach the lost.  Gifts and callings of God are given by the Spirit as He chooses to accomplish the plans of God.  Joel 2:28-29; Acts 8:17-18; I Cor.  7:20, 12:28; Romans 12; Eph.  4.

Tithes and Offerings: Releases the church to do the work of the ministry.  Mal.3:10; Matt.6:1-4; Luke 6:38; Rom 12:8; I Cor.16:1-2; Deut. 15:11; Proverbs 3:9 & 10.

The Resurrection of the Saints and the Return of our Lord: The Second Coming of Christ is both imminent and personal.  Everyone who is Christ that has passed on will be caught up to meet him in air, and those who remain shall be quickly changed and caught up with them in the clouds.

There is a judgment of tribulation for those who choose not to follow Christ.  I Thes.  4:16-17 and the book of Revelations. (sin, redemption, See entire Old and New Testament)
