The Covenant of A.I.I.M. is that we will work together to build the Kingdom of God in the earth as the Father has called us to do.

No one person can do what needs to be done, but as we link our hearts and minds we can be a great strength together.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, 12 “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him. If one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken”.
