PILLARS/CORE VALUES OF FATHER'S LOVE FORUM
LOVE: From the Forum’s nomenclature “FATHER’S LOVE FORUM”, it is not an aberration that the word “Love” stands-out as the epicenter between the two words “Father’s and Forum”. This is because love is absolutely the enthralling influence and binding force of our entire operations as a Forum; love is the motive, love is the process, and love is the product, so it is all about love; and that is why we are Father’s Love Forum.
Welfare (Kitchen Parade): It is often said that “you can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving” also scripture establishes that “for God so loved the world that he gave us his only begotten son…(John 3:16)”. sequel to “Love” being the epicenter of our existence as a forum, the whole essence of the welfare department is based on the need to extend our love to the youths by giving to meet their welfare needs.
Also, by studying and adopting the ministerial approaches and life of Jesus, whose greatest evangelical tool was his concern for the welfare of the people (John 6:1-14). Jesus by love and concern about the people’s welfare fed them and in turn that gesture intensified the people’s believe in him.
Therefore FLF Food Parade which is part of the activities of the welfare department is first an expression of Love; that is why the food parade is always performed with a visible expression of love in every approach, for it is this love that enters the hearts of the people and compels them to come; not necessarily the mere food that is served to them.
WORD: Father’s Love Forum holds a prerogative to igniting and enlightening the hearts of people across board; the bible says “my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge… (Hosea 4:6)”. The forum regards insight as the most valuable resource and the greatest asset in the journey of life, the more you know, the more authority is conferred on you in your field. Bishop Oyedepo said “give a man money he will soon finish it; but give him insight and he has an inheritance”.
Diligent commitment to the word of truth which is derived from the Holy Scriptures, other spiritual literatures as well as inspirational materials imparts insight, ignites the spirit man, and equips the mind. This is why FLF teaching series are garnished with rich and nutritious nuggets garnered from God’s word and other relevant materials to ennoble the development of a total youth.
It is to the essence of reading that the FLF LIBRARY was established and is frequently equipped so that in addition to the book reviews where Exco members refer to books from the library, youths and other FLF members can be encouraged to borrow books and read for their growth and development.
FELLOWSHIP: Father’s Love Forum amongst other things provides a solid support system to its membership through continuous fellowship. The bible says “and they continued steadfastly in the apostle’s doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers (Acts 2:42)”.
The strategy to sustaining spiritual fervency, moral uprightness, mental exploits, and physical stamina which are all critical to an ever victorious life is in the place of consistent fellowship with God, with the Holy Spirit as well as with other brethren. Again scripture say “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching (Heb 10:25)”.
Father’s Love Forum is very particular about the continuous fellowship of its membership in order to exhort one another thereby maximizing the support system that is established when brethren gather together; hence the weekly fellowship meetings as well as the periodic general programs that are orchestrated by the founder’s visit.
WITNESSING: Father’s Love Forum gives optimum priority to reaching out to others who are yet to come into their heritage in God. We achieve this by applying the first core value which is love; to ensure that souls are salvaged from being lost to the kingdom of darkness and destinies are realigned to fulfilling their glorious future.
