Margaret Saltrøe is the founder of LLMI. She shares her vision for the ministry in a video.
And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers. 12 His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church), 13 [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him, Ephesians 4:11-13.
Living Life Ministries International mandate is a follows:
Our vision is to plant Apostolic Centers which will house our Churches. We evangelise in areas where there are no Churches, then we plant an Apostolic Center there. The goal of our Apostolic Centers is to disciple, train and empower fivefold ministers. Through a Cross Centered approach, we encourage our leaders and members to work out their salvation. We also emphasise the importance of living a life in true repentance to not only experience salvation but also the manifested power of God in one’s life. We follow the Biblical pattern of confession of the name of Jesus unto salvation, water baptism and the infilling of the baptism of the Holy Spirit to the believer.
Our theology is that of the first Christians. We belive that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried and raised from the dead on the third day. Recognising that all that the Church has, is because of His shed blood through the Holy Spirit. Our foundation is not a new one, but the foundation that was laid by the first Church. It is only through this foundation that the believer can mature, and begin to move in the resurrection power of Christ, our Head.
The goal of our Apostolic Centers is to bring disciples to maturity and they learn to utilise their gifts. Jesus is coming back to a mature bride. Jesus did not die to have a Church full of helpless, hopeless Christians, but that we would know Him and the Father through experience. Jesus desired that all who believed in Him should be baptised in the Holy Spirit. He wanted a powerful Church. Our greatest desire is to be an instrument in the hand of the Lord, to be a part of the development of the end time Church to maturity. We aspire to be ones that facilitates the maturity and growth of five-fold ministry in the Church today. Emphasising the need to live holy and surrendered lives unto to Lord.
We are still living in the time of Pentecost.
Acts 1:8 states -
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and the end of the earth.”
In Mark 16:16-18 Jesus gave believers commissioned with authority -
“He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.”
Reading the Bible daily, meditating on the Word, worshipping, praise and thanksgiving are daily disciplines that our members are encouraged to practice.
