Core Principles

The Kingdom of Heaven does not operate within the same principles and protocols as the kingdoms of the earth.  God's ways are much higher than our ways; Isaiah 55:8-9.  During the formation of Fire Starters International, the Lord gave us eight (8) ministry protocols to operate by to aid in ushering in His Glory and Presence.


  1. Respect Others and Give Gifts
    • When ministering in someone else’s house, we ask to be received on the land by the elders/gatekeepers of the land.  We humbly present ourselves, with a gift.  Proverbs 18:16.  A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great.
  2. Flee Offense
    • We determine, with the strength of God, not to walk in offense with others or ourselves.  We choose to forgive, to cover every offense.  Proverbs 18:19.  An offended friend is harder to win back than a fortified city.  Arguments separate friends like a gate locked with bars.
  3. Purpose to Love
    • We pray for the people before we go.  We realize, that the love we have for each other, will speak louder than the words we preach.  Ephesians 5:2.  And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
  4. Operate with The Father's Heart
    • We walk with a Father’s and Mother’s heart.  Not because we have a grandiose calling, but because we choose to walk in the Father’s love. “Shed abroad Love” Romans 5:5,
  5. Maintain Attitude of Gratitude
    • We maintain at attitude of gratitude.  When we are grateful for the miracles that God is doing, He will continue to do them.  Colossians 3:17.  And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
  6. Live in Joy
    • We purpose to walk in joy, to enjoy each other and to have fun.  It will be our strength and the honey that will draw others to Him.  Psalms 36:8.  They are filled with the riches of Your house. And You give them a drink from Your river of Joy.
  7. Help Others Achieve Their Calling
    • We appoint others, by the Lord’s commissioning, to do what they are called to do. Acts 13:2.  They were all worshiping the Lord and fasting for a certain time. During this time the Holy Spirit said to them, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul to do a special work for which I have chosen them.”
  8. Eradicate Fear
    • We will not live in fear, walk in fear, respond in fear, or pacify fear.  We will eradicate it with God’s love and replace it with God’s Word.  1 John 4:18.  Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear.
