ABOUT APOSTOLIC TEAM MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL
To know our future, we must understand and embrace our past. In the past we were known as a purely "apostolic team," today we are a team ministry of like-minded five-fold ministers. The Prophet Isaiah says that God declares the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10). By beginning with the end in His mind we believe that God had the future of ATM prepared from the foundation of the earth, which first manifested in the 1970's and will continue to be realized until His literal return. Until that time we will continue to equip the saints of God to complete the work of the ministry, both in the church and outside its walls. It is this belief and trust in the faithfulness and timelessness of the Lord that drives us into the future. We are headed into what is unknown to us, but already known and completed in the timelessness of God. We intend to vigilantly and passionately build on the foundation of ATM's founding fathers by continuing to forge ahead with new zeal and vigor in the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry. ATM will move forward in the attitude of Isaac, who redug the wells of his father and dug his own wells. The future of ATM will include continuing in this "Isaac Initiative" to redig the wells of our fathers and dig new wells. Today, the culture and era of time in which we live is categorized as random, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous, but with a biblical perspective, this won't only be overcome it can make us stronger. Today's culture is marked by relentless attacks on the traditional family, a reduced sensitivity to the voice of God replaced by an irresponsible affinity toward science and intellect as the source of solutions to our problems, a way of living where Christians keep their spiritual life separate from the rest of their life, and globalization, which can undermine a true sense of community. Because of these and other things, many question what can truly be known, if anything at all. Regardless of what others believe can be known, we hold to the firm conviction that God can be known and wants to be known by humankind. To that end, we are blazing into the future with the message that every believer is a priest who can know God, hear His voice, and feel His presence. Coming to know the God of the Bible (The One True and Only God) and how He can give you insight to solve problems, redeem and keep safe your family, works powerfully outside of the church in the place you live and work, and unite us together beyond artificial connections is the banner cry of today's ATM.
