In 1986, during a time of prayer and fasting, the Lord spoke very clearly to Pastor Anderson from the 26th chapter of the Book of Acts, verses 16 through 18, re-affirming and strengthening the vision of his heart. As these verses of scripture burned into his consciousness, he realized that God was not only speaking to him personally, but that He was revealing His plan and purpose for the local church body as well.
But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you… to open (men’s) eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.”Acts 26:16-18
Acts 26:16-18 is the call of God upon Impact Family Church. All ministry – every program and activity of the church is directed toward fulfilling this purpose.
Based on Acts 26:16-18 the mission of Impact Family Church is to:
* Be a witness of the great Biblical truths of salvation, redemption, righteousness, faith, love, healing, prosperity, and the present-day ministry of the Holy Spirit.
* Open the eyes of the spiritually blind, to turn them away from the darkness and emptiness of this world and its philosophies, and from the weakness of religious tradition to the light of God’s Word.
* Show the way of freedom from Satan’s power and of access through Christ to God’s fullness.
* Bring the Good News of reconciliation with God – of the restoration to favor with God through the remission of sins, by the blood of Christ.
* Throw open the doors to the treasure-house of God’s blessings by preaching the unsearchable riches of Christ.
* Unveil to the believer the riches of his inheritance in Christ – his covenant rights and privileges as a child of God.
