The Vision

(a) Christian Family Churches of Australia was born out of a vision that God called into being to reach people with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, to join together those people who through like faith in Christ desire to fellowship together, and who together with all others who confess Jesus as Lord make up the body of Christ which is the church.

(b) Christian Family Churches should be the demonstration of a ministry that meets the needs of the community and makes Christ centered contributions to the said community in which God has placed C.F.C. Assemblies.

(c) Christian Family Churches of Australia is associated with all the churches in Australia who are committed to the statement of faith contained in this constitution.

(d) We recognize that The Church of Jesus Christ is theocratic in government with God appointed ministers operating on Biblical standards as indicated in the books of the New Testament Canon of Scripture.

CHRISTIAN FAMILY CHURCHES OF AUSTRALIA:

INTRODUCTION:

PRO 29:18: Where {there is} no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy {is} he. (KJV)

THAT IS WHY THE NEED FOR THIS CONSTITUTION, WHERE THERE'S NO VISION THE PEOPLE PERISH. WHEN CHRISTIANS ARE CALLED OF GOD AND ARE GIVEN MINISTRY AND SERVICE POSITIONS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST, MANY TIMES THEY PERISH FOR LACK OF REVELATION AS TO WHAT THE CHURCH AND MINISTER REQUIRE OF THEM, AND NOT LEAST OF ALL THE LORD HIMSELF REQUIRES OF THEM!

THEY GET LUKEWARM AND LAZY; THEY'LL FLOAT AROUND, NOT KNOWING WHAT THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO DO!

AS YOU READ THIS CONSTITUTION, I WANT YOU TO MAKE A DECISION OF WHAT YOUR GOALS ARE, HOW THEY LINE UP WITH THE LORD'S GOALS, C.F.C's GOALS AND THE PASTORS GOALS.

WHEN YOU DO, YOU'LL HAVE SUCCESS IN YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST, YOUR MINISTRY AND YOUR CHURCH. YOU'LL BE SINGLE MINDED.

(James 1:5-9 NKJ)

(5) If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. (6) But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. (7) For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; (8) {he is} a double minded man, unstable in all his ways.

I HAVE A VISION FOR THIS NATION, STARTING FROM WHERE THE LORD HAS TOLD ME TO BEGIN, HERE IN QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA.

HE HAS TOLD ME TO WRITE IT DOWN IN THIS BOOK IN SECTIONS, FOR ALL WHO WOULD JOIN THEMSELVES TO THIS VISION, AS THE LORD DIRECTS THEM. TO MAKE IT PLAIN, SO AS TO SEE WHAT I REQUIRE OF THEM.(Habakkuk 2:2-3 NKJ)

(2) Then the Lord answered me and said: "Write the vision and make {it} plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. (3) For the vision {is} yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

LABOURERS TOGETHER:

YOU CANNOT DO THE JOB THAT GOD HAS CALLED ME TO DO BETTER THAN ME, AND I CAN NOT DO YOURS BETTER THAN YOU.

GOD HAS CALLED ME TO BUILD THIS CHURCH WITH HIM AS HIS CO-WORKER AND GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO JOIN WITH ME IN THIS VISION AS MY CO-WORKERS IN JESUS.

WE ARE CALLED OF THE SAME GOD, THE SAME LORD, THE SAME SPIRIT, TO WORK TOGETHER AND KNIT TOGETHER. THEN AND ONLY THEM WILL WE TAKE THIS LAND, AND THEN THE WORLD FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

I CAN ONLY DO WHAT GOD HAS TOLD ME TO DO; I'M GOING TO WORK TOWARDS THAT HEAVENLY VISION HE GAVE ME.1CO 3:9

For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, {you are} God's building. (NKJ)

WE ARE CO-LABOURERS TOGETHER, WE ARE TO WORK TOGETHER.2CO 6:1

We then, {as} workers together {with Him} also plead with {you} not to receive the grace of God in vain. (NKJ)

1CO 1:10

Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and {that} there be no divisions among you, but {that} you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. (NKJ)

IF YOU HAVE A MOVEMENT OR A CHURCH THAT'S NOT SAYING THE SAME THING, YOU'LL HAVE DIVISION. IF THE BODY DOESN'T SHARE THE SAME VISION, THEY NEED TO GET IT TOGETHER, THERE MUST BE UNITY.

UNITY MUST FIRST OF ALL BE WITH THE WORD OF GOD, AND THE VISION GOD HAS GIVEN THE SHEPHERD OF THE MOVEMENT OR CHURCH.

THEY ALL HAVE TO HAVE THE SAME VISION AND BE CALLED TO WORK TOGETHER, THE SAME GOAL TO SEE SOULS WON INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD, NOT JUST THE GROUP WE BELONG TOO.

MAT 18:19

"Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.

ISA 1:19

If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; (NKJ)

SEE IT THROUGH:

JOH 4:34

Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. (NKJ)

I'M GOING TO FINISH THE WORK THE LORD HAS GIVEN ME TO DO. I'M GOING TO REACH THE GOAL GOD HAS TOLD ME TO REACH. I'M NOT GOING TO BE ASHAMED. WHEN YOU MAKE THE DECISION TO DO WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO DO, AND KEEP TO IT, YOU'LL SEE RESULTS; YOU'LL REACH YOUR GOAL, IT'S CALLED FAITHFULNESS. I CALL IT THE ABILITY TO STICK TO THE VISION NOT MATTER WHAT--STICKABILTY!

DO WHAT GOD SAYS:-

IF HE SAYS JOIN YOURSELF TO THIS VISION AND GET INVOLVED, GET INVOLVED. IF HE SAYS TO HELP FINANCIALLY, GIVE MONEY. DON'T BE TOO BUSY TO DO WHAT HE SAYS TO DO! AS WE ALL WORK TOGETHER, WE CAN GET THE JOB DONE. WE ALL HAVE OUR PART TO PLAY.

(1Corinthians 12:14-18 NKJ)

(14) For in fact the body is not one member but many. (15) If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body? (16) And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body? (17) If the whole body {were} an eye, where {would be} the hearing? If the whole {were} hearing, where {would be} the smelling? (18) But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.

YOU SAY "WELL GOD HASN'T GIVEN ME A VISION, BUT I BELIEVE HE HAS CALLED ME TO THIS WORK." THEN CATCH THE VISION OF THE MAN THAT GOD HAS CALLED TO BUILD THIS WORK, CATCH MY VISION, BE FAITHFUL TO THIS MINISTRY. BE WILLING TO BE OBEDIENT. YOU'LL EAT THE GOOD OF THE LAND!

JOH 17:4

"I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. (NKJ)

DO YOU WANT TO GLORIFY GOD? BE OBEDIENT TO WHERE HE HAS CALLED YOU AND FINISH THE WORK HE HAS CALLED YOU TO DO.

MANY PEOPLE DON'T EVEN GET INTO THE FIRST PHASE OF THEIR MINISTRY, LET ALONE FINISH IT. WHY? BECAUSE THEY LISTEN TO EVERYONE BUT GOD.

THEY LOOK TO EVERYTHING BUT THE VISION, THE GOAL; THEY DON'T DO WHAT GOD SAID TO DO.

2TI 4:7

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. (NKJ)

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A SPIRITUAL WAR. WE CANNOT GIVE UP. WE CANNOT FAINT. WE'VE GOT TO HOLD FAST. WE'VE GOT TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH.

1TI 6:12

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. (NKJ)

I NEED YES MEN TO BE AROUND ME! YES, YES MEN AND WOMEN, WHO WILL SAY YES TO GOD, YES TO THE PASTOR AND YES TO THE VISION!

WE'RE ON THE FRONT LINES; WE CANNOT HAVE A BUNCH OF INCOMPETENTS TRIPPING OVER ONE ANOTHER, PRETENDING TO BE SOLDIERS; WE'VE GOT TO BE ORGANISED. IT WOULD BE USELESS TO FOR ME TO GATHER MEN AND WOMEN AROUND ME WHO DO NOT HAVE MY VISION, WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE GOALS SET FORTH. WE MUST HAVE UNITY OF VISION IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, THEN WE HAVE GODS BLESSING!

PSA 133:1

Behold, how good and how pleasant {it is} For brethren to dwell together in unity! (NKJ)

MAT 12:25

But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. (NKJ)

AMO 3:3

can two walk together, unless they are agreed? (NKJ)

LUK 10:2

Then He said to them, "The harvest truly {is} great, but the labourers {are} few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest. (NKJ)

THAT IS MY PRAYER, THAT GOD SEND ME LABOURERS, GROUNDED IN THE WORD. AND WE'LL ALL WORK TOGETHER AND GET THE JOB DONE! PRAISE GOD YOU ARE BEHIND ME AS CO-WORKERS IN THE LORD. YOU HAVE CAUGHT THE VISION, FOR WITHOUT IT YOU'LL PERISH, SET YOUR GOAL AND GOD WILL HELP YOU REACH IT. WAIT FOR IT, BECAUSE IT WILL SURELY COME; IT WILL NOT TARRY!
