The mission of AHF is to “Empower Godly believers, who are released to minister according to their individual giftedness and abilities.”
What does this mean?
- “Empowered” – People are empowered by a deepening personal relationship with God. Other than evangelism of the lost, this is the most important goal of AHF.
- “Released to minister” – At AHF, every believer is a minister and is a part of the priesthood of all believers (1 Peter 2:9). Ministering to ourselves does not change the world for Christ. It is only when we “Go ye therefore” that we live our Christianity and impact our community, our country and our world for Christ. In order to change our communities for Christ…we need YOU to be actively involved. It is not the job of a special few…it’s YOUR job!
- “According to giftedness and ability” – All believers have been given gifts by God. It is our desire and goal to mature people in Christ and lead them in ministering as the Holy Spirit directs and as He has gifted them. As the scriptures teach, we affirm that not all have the same gifts, but each are given gifts as God has appointed (1 Corinthians 12:28-31; Ephesians 4:11, 12).
