About MFICS …
The Ministerial Forum For International Churches In Scandinavia (MFICS) is an organization that is desirous to forge a mutual relationship between ministries and churches for the protection of their interests and the joint pursuit of their common aims and objectives.
We are convinced that it is good and pleasant for brethren to dwell together in unity to bear witness of the divine mission; and are determined to uphold a biblically acceptable standard of practice for all churches and ministries with a view to maintaining our position as the salt of the world.
Are you a pastor or ministry leader seeking to become a part of an organization that genuinely cares about supporting you as you go about fulfilling God’s vision? MFICS is here for you!
MFICS started in the heart of Rev Dr. James Commey (the Chairman) after a prophetic word about leading a group of ministers to bring unity and advance the Kingdom of God in the Scandinavian region generally.
Initially, he wasn’t too sure where to start from or how to go about it. But in 2018, after a couple of years of prayer, planning and waiting on the Lord, He led him to bring pastors together to resolve differences they had with each other.
The Lord gave the team such success that the logical NEXT thing was to start tapping into our individual strengths and gifts for our collective good.
MFICS was born as the platform to give ministers opportunity to be more, do more and achieve more by sharing from other graces as a result of being a part of a larger body.
We pride ourselves in providing the support and encouragement ministers need to forge ahead in their fulfillment of their ministerial mandates.
Our Statement of Faith
Herre at the Ministerial Forum For International Churches (MFICS), we believe that:
1. The Bible is inspired of God, inerrant in the original documents and of final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
2. There is one God, eternally existent in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
3. The Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin and is sinlessly perfect. His sacrifice is substitutionary and representative. He rose bodily from the dead and ascended to His Father’s right hand, where He now ministers as our Great Hight Priest. He will come to rapture His Church and subsequently return to reign over the earth.
4. Each member of the human race is fallen, sinful and lost. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of man. Redemption is wholly by the blood of Christ. Salvation is by grace, through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
5. The Holy Spirit indwells the believer who is thus empowered to live a godly life.
6. There will be a resurrection of the saved and of the lost; of the saved unto eternal life and of the lost unto eternal and conscious judgment.
7. The Church began with the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and is composed of all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. These believers are united to Him and to one another by the indwelling Spirit. The Church’s calling, hope and destiny are heavenly, and its chief functions are to glorify God and to witness for Christ until His return.
8. Christ, the risen Head, is the Giver of spiritual gifts to all believers. Gifted individuals such as evangelists, pastors and teachers are responsible to Him for their service and are given “for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”
9. There are two Christian ordinances: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism by immersion signifies that the believer, having died with Christ, is buried with Him in baptism and also is risen with Christ to walk in newness of life. The Lord’s Supper is a remembrance feast, instituted by the Lord Himself exclusively for His own.
10. Every true child of God possesses eternal life and being justified, sanctified and sealed with the Holy Spirit, is safe and secure for all eternity.
11. The personal, imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ to translate His Church will be followed by the tribulation and the inauguration of Christ’s reign over the earth. He will then deliver up the Kingdom to God the Father, that the Triune God may be all in all.
