Kingdom Lifestyle Ministries International is a household of faith in the apostolic family called Emmanuel Ministries International. An apostolic household is a group of believers, fivefold ministers and churches who have confederated to work together for a single purpose in the kingdom of God. Unlike the denominational system, where someone can be part of an organization which knows nothing about them, their family or their ministry, an apostolic household functions as a family within the greater kingdom family.
Apostle John M Boney stands as the father of the global family, and the members of the households relate to him as sons and daughters. The father ministry displays a genuine interest in and concern for those who are part of and encourage them also to relate to each other as brothers and sisters, to encourage and pray for each other, and where possible to join together in the equipping of the church and the building of the kingdom.
A sincere apostolic father seeks to establish the sons to function well in biblical order in their own homes, thus empowering them to become spiritual fathers in their own homes first and then in the household of faith.
Apostle Vincent G Valentyn provides leadership to Kingdom Lifestyle Ministries along with the fivefold ministers and relational elders in the various churches where he provides apostolic oversight according to the excellent grace of God apportioned to him.
What is Apostolic Grace?
“Let my people go” Moses spoke to Pharaoh to release the Israelites – This apostolic impartation empowered their release. Today apostolic grace empowers the people of God to come out of religious bondages and to take up bold new positions in the spirit and through the process divine order is being accomplished.
Within the apostolic grace are invested by the power of Holy Spirit, faith, love, wisdom, understanding, knowledge, courage, leadership ability and prophetic discernment. 2 John 1:3 is a foundational scripture that embraces these truths.
“Grace (unmerited favor and supernatural ability) be with you (firmly attached as one) mercy (active compassion) and peace (shalom, well-being in all realms of living) from God the Father (apostolic authority) and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the son of the Father (correct and accurate reproduction and authority level) in truth (total absence of falsity) and love (agape, God’s love, sacrificial and selfless – the heart of martyrdom.)”
We believe that the end-time church will be the visible manifestation of the King on the earth, fully and truthfully representing Him in holiness and righteousness, in love and compassion, in power and authority, in mercy and grace and declaring His glory not just in words but by its very existence, thus preparing the way for the full establishment of the kingdom of God and the personal return of Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords. To this extend we give ourselves as bondservants of Christ to see His church established and His kingdom restored.
