AFM Missional Actions

AFM Members: Be Missional

“Missional” means living and sharing the message of Jesus every day, not just inside our church walls, but everywhere we go. It is about knowing Jesus more and then reflecting Him in everything we do, like our early church members did. Even though they did not use the word “missional”, they lived it practically. Our mission comes straight from Jesus. He mandated us to spread His message of Forgiveness and Grace everywhere.

The AFM was placed in South Africa for a reason, let us fulfil our redemptive and prophetic purpose with enthusiasm and diligence.

AFM Members: Share what God has Done for You 

Sometimes it is hard to put into words just how much God has done for us. There are so many things He’s done, big and small, that it is almost overwhelming – whether it is something big like a miraculous healing or something small like providing for a particular need when we did not know how we would make it through. God has done so much for us, and it is worth talking about. It is the strongest form of testimony about the reality of God’s presence in our lives. People may differ about religious believes and writings, but they cannot really argue against your personal experience.

Do not keep it to yourself. Let us spread the word and give glory to our amazing God who continuous to do so much for us.

AFM Member: GO and make Disciples of Nations

Discipleship boils down to this: Follow Jesus and help others follow Him too. It is a two-step process: First, you embrace Jesus and His teachings; then you show others how to do the same. Being a disciple means soaking up the wisdom and love of Jesus, and then letting it shine through you (Galatians 4:19). It is about becoming more like Him every day, letting His Spirit guide your actions.

AFM Member: Be Equipped for Ministry

All AFM church members must be empowered for their ministry as followers of Jesus. The main goal is to grow as a true follower of Jesus who can carry out God’s mission. It is not true that only pastors are “called” and everyone else is just attending. Like every member of the AFM, you are called by God to be a full-time part of the body of Christ, sharing the message of Jesus through your life and work.

That is why it is important that you attend training events at your local assembly. Be actively involved in the Sunday services, ministries, and other activities of your church.

AFM Member: Live with Godly Integrity and Character

Living with Godly integrity and character means being responsible with the resources and abilities God has given to each of us as followers of Jesus to fulfil the Great Commission. It is about more than just talking the talk about how things should be done; it is about living practically in a God honouring way and doing what is right.

Good Governance starts with our personal lives: How we manage our personal resources, our finances, and our abilities. How we look after our own possessions and everything that God has given us.

AFM Member: Take Hands with other Christians

This is about acknowledging that we are part of the larger church community and focusing on the Kingdom. We believe in being respectful and maintaining good relationships with other churches. After all, we are not the only church out there; we are a part of God’s bigger Church on earth. Jesus himself prayed for unity among believers in John 17:20-21.

We encourage our pastors and members not to be exclusive, but to have a Kingdom-minded attitude. That means putting the growth of the Kingdom of God first and building relationships with other Life-giving churches. We cannot truly be a mission-focused church if we ignore the wider body of Christ.

AFM Member: Care for Your Community

Our main motivation for being involved in our communities is not just about being nice or doing charity work. It is about showing the love of God to everyone. Our mission to reach out to our communities is a big part of our missional action, and it is not just about preaching. It’s also about being relevant to the real-life issues people face.

Although we do not want to create a culture of dependence, we must step up and lend a hand. That might mean helping people learn new skills or find jobs, so they can take care of themselves. Some of our local churches are doing amazing things in this area, with some inspiring success stories to tell. It is all about making a real difference in people’s lives right where we are.

AFM Values

Having clear values is like having a compass in a dense forest; they guide our decisions and actions and serve as a blueprint for how we want to live. When we align our actions with our values, we cultivate authenticity and build trust with others. Ultimately, having clear values is not just about knowing what we stand for; it’s about living a life that practically reflects those beliefs.

The AFM has four key values: Integrity, Relationships, Accountability and Excellence.
