All biblical and practical training should ultimately be directed to fulfill the Great Commission: to make disciples who obey everything Jesus commands (Matthew 28:19).
This objective is comprised of at least three levels of training:
- Developing a lifestyle that reflects the character, principles, priorities and servant attitude of Christ: "Be imitators of me, as I'm of Christ" (1 Chorintians 11:1).
- Providing practical opportunities for the development and use of spiritual gifts within the church: "For the perfecting of the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:12 )
- Equipping with the necessary resources to ensure the accuracy and continuity of Biblical teaching: "What you heard from me among many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also" (2 Timothy 2:2)
It is for this reason that the IPCF includes the following activities in its agenda:
- Discipleship programs
- Outreach activities
- Seminars, Conferences
- Systematic Bible studies
- Study materials
- Ministerial training
Each of these activities is open to all church members. If they so wish they may participate in a three-level training program called "From discipleship to leadership, through service" designed to continue until the individuals involved who may have received a specific call from the Lord, are ready to be appointed leaders for the church (see chart below):
