IFM is committed to establishing Baptist churches, to Biblical Christianity and to a strong separatist position. A number of years ago, we adopted a line underneath the name of Independent Faith Mission which states, " A Fundamental Baptist Mission." Our use of the term fundamental stems from the great doctrinal controversies which arose in the early years of this century. We hold to those doctrines which were outlined as the great fundamentals of the faith. As a Baptist mission we hold to a separatist position believing that the Word of God prohibits fellowship which would compromise the integrity of those great doctrines.
