Three things that the New Testament church had that are lacking in the Modern Church: 1. Infilling of the Holy Spirit. 2. The gifts of the Spirit & 3. Fivefold ministry Apostolic Reformation Throughout history there have been waves of the Holy Spirit that resulted in attempts at restoration or reformation of the Church to return it to the original doctrine of the Apostles of Jesus Christ. Movements of Apostolic Reformation have happened repeatedly since the time of John Wycliffe. In the last Century there was an Apostolic reformation that birthed the Apostolic Faith movement and subsequent Pentecostal Movement. It is our expectation that we are on the verge of another similar wave of the Spirit. We refer to this as The Next Wave. The Next Wave The Next Wave will move away from the traditions of men and focus on the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the teaching of the New Testament church and the Apostles of Jesus Christ. The next wave has little interest in superficial events and pseudo "outpourings‟ opting for a real and sustaining manifestation of the power of God. Royal Priesthood For the Royal Priesthood (or the Body of Christ) to come to maturity it will take a fully functional fivefold ministry. To this end we have committed to ICOF FIVEFOLD ROUNDTABLES. It is our mission to form one of these in each country in the world. To these we are connecting legitimate fivefold ministers. Unified Army Moving forward we expect to use this unified effort to prepare a unified army as a catalyst for the greatest wave of the Holy Spirit. Welcome.

The Modern Church The Modern church has modeled it's structure on a networking or business model brought to the fore from the Roman Empire's system by the Roman Catholic Church and the Roman/Greek corporate or nation state organization which looks like a pyramid. The Protestant reformers

The New Testament Church The New Testament church used a model much different than what we use today in most churches, ministries and denominations. The New Testament church mastered a concept of being the church that has generally been lost in practical application.

Work Group Model To use a computer analogy we are using a networking model when we should be using a work group model. The networking model points everyone to the top of the pyramid while the work group model requires an independence on each other.

Fivefold Roundtable Responsibility The fivefold ministry was given by Jesus Christ to his Bride (Royal Priesthood) the Church. The fivefold ministry was given as servants to the Bride. The fivefold roundtable consists of pastors, teachers, evangelists, apostles, and prophets. The assignment of the fivefold is:  For the perfecting of the saints  For the work of the ministry  For the edifying of the body of Christ: The goal of the fivefold ministry is to serve the Body of Christ:    

Till we all come in the unity of the faith and The knowledge of the Son of God Unto a perfect man Unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:11-17)

Join Hearts and Hands with us. We are using the example of the Round Table as our model for the fivefold ministry. The original significance of the Round Table was that no one person sits at the head of such a table. A round table enforces the concept of equality. Each of the seats at the ICOF Fivefold Round Table are highly favored places. No titles at the table. Now is the time. We are bringing like minded fivefold oriented men and women together in your area to form a national fivefold roundtable. We also plan to form regional and state roundtables where applicable. Contact us today. We all need each other to prepare the Body of Christ. Email the representative in your area (See page 2) or:
