D-MIF is mainly about fellowship with accountability. We will not dominate or dictate to any individual or ministry. Neither will we practice any form of isolation or seek to change anyone's doctrinal beliefs that are already sound and concrete in the faith.
Any association within D-MIF is strictly voluntary, both at the beginning and in continuation. Members remain at liberty to withdraw from the Fellowship it has voluntarily associated with at any time! However, Episcopal accountability is required.
Soul Freedom - We believe in the authority of the church. We affirm the freedom and responsibility of every person to relate directly to God without the imposition of creed or the control of clergy or government from this Fellowship.
Bible Freedom - We believe in the authority of Scripture. We believe the Bible, under the Lordship of Christ, is central to the life of the individual and the church. We affirm the freedom and right of every Christian to interpret and apply scripture under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.
Church Freedom - We believe in the autonomy of every local church. Consequently, we believe all churches should be free, under the Lordship of Christ, to determine their membership and leadership, to order their worship and work, to ordain whomever they perceive as gifted for ministry, and to participate as they deem appropriate in the larger Body of Christ.
Religious Freedom - We believe in freedom of religion, freedom for religion, and freedom from religion. We support the separation of church and state.
