Philosophy of Ministry

This Philosophy of Ministry statement has been developed to help us be faithful to God’s call. It will help us to effectively fulfill our mission and clarify how we will approach ministry. The EMMC exists to EQUIP and ENCOURAGE our churches for effective ministry, EMPOWERING them to participate in God’s work in the world. Ultimately to make disciples.


The Philosophy of Ministry evaluation has been developed to provide an objective format to gain feedback from individuals, and evaluate the health and effectiveness of churches and ministries. This will allow us to identify areas to address and to hold each other accountable to God’s call on our ministries.


EMMC Philosophy Of Ministry

1. Wholistic

God’s Word is transforming not only for salvation, but for continual growth to full maturity in Christ (sanctification). Presentation of the Gospel needs to be wholistic affecting every area of life. It needs to be lived out (incarnational) and guided by the Holy Spirit. Believers must be discipled toward ongoing maturity in the faith.


2. Essentials

Identify the primary/core components of the Gospel while leaving secondary issues/decisions (I.e. mode of baptism, order of worship), to the discernment of the local ministry, applying the Gospel to the specific context. God’s WORD is the message (essential), ministry workers have different gifts (variable), and target cultures are different (variable).

3. Multiplication

Ministries and church plants must, from inception, have a vision for reproducing themselves. This model calls for the incorporation of active discipleship, teaching believers of all ages to engage in ministry, and to be active in the body of Christ. Ministry workers will look for discipleship tools that can be duplicated, locally reproduced, and culturally applied.

4. Equipping

Leadership must focus on equipping the body for ministry (Eph 4:10-12; 2 Tim 2). Ministry workers must focus on empowering local leaders (seeing the potential in people), discipling them to theological soundness and maturity, giving them room to participate and grow in their leadership.


5. Indigenous (local)

Focus on creating sustainable ministries that are locally governed and financially supported, reproducing, and are able to teach and apply Biblical theology. This focus needs to begin at inception and carry through to maturity. The goal is partnership rather than paternalism.
