A Brief History & Mission Statement

:: 1990 - The beginning.
In January 1990 Archbishop William J Foley (the late Archbishop of Perth) gave his blessing to conduct a biblical seminar called Set My People On Fire which was based upon a prophecy received during prayer on Christmas Eve 1989. This prophecy was to later form the vision and mandate for Flame Ministries International. The first Set My People On Fire (SMPOF) seminars was conducted in February 1990 with great success. Since its small beginning it has been preached twice a year in Australia and, during 1994 in Birmingham and Peterborough in England by the Australian speakers. Since 2004 SMPOF has been preached twice a year in various areas and parishes around the United Kingdom.

:: Flame Ministries International was founded later in 1990.
Later in 1990 The Lord showed Mr. Eddie Russell his vision called "Flame" Ministries. This vision was formulated and accepted by the authors of "Set My People On Fire" and Archbishop Foley who gave his blessing to function in the Archdiocese of Perth.

:: Membership.
There is no general public membership in Flame Ministries International: Each member of the organization has a specific job or role to play, and is therefore active in the full work of the ministry in its day to day function and outreaches. All positions are voluntary, and include full time and part time positions depending on the member's state of life.

After graduating the Set My People on Fire Seminars, and after meeting the required criteria, prospective members can apply for a one year term defining their chosen area of service and expertise.

:: Public Membership.
There is no general membership in FMI but all functions are open to the public. The term Is therefore defined by people of all ages and walks of life that regularly attend our weekly public meetings. These general public 'members' (attendees) take no vows and are free to come and go. At these meetings, attendees can be called upon to serve the meetings in various areas such as; auditorium set up, sound set up, kitchen duties, greeters, overhead technology, and other areas as needed in the Ministry of Helps.

:: Our work is to:
Preach and teach the Gospel as our primary function as the Ministry of the Evangelist. To evangelise; write and develop evangeliation programmes, Biblical seminars and Video and Audio Productions.

Form, develop, and conduct Prayer (Praise) meetings and missionary outreaches both in the Catholic Church and to the wider Body of Christ throughout the world.

:: FMI does not discriminate.
There is no distinction between age, status, gender or nationality. FMI gives everyone a clear opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, the truths of Holy Scripture and life within the Church as its normal ethos.

:: FMI does not permit any form of "Inclusion" nor "Syncretism."
We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ needs no other religion, pagan belief or New Age philosophy to embellish its efficacy for Salvation.

:: Annual Flame Congress.
Annual Congress is held in Perth during January each year. The Annual Flame Congress has attracted international speakers of note and attendance in excess of 3,000 people over any one weekend. During these times many people have experienced healing and salvation.

"12 Steps To Divine Healing." This book is proving very popular around the world. There have been reports that people have received healing, insight and encouragement from Jesus through reading this book. More than anything else, this book shows the reader "how" to receive from God what He has divinely promised in His Word. In January 2001 12 Steps to Divine Healing was translated into the German language and published in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It is now available in all Book Stores in all German speaking countries. In 2003 the book was also translated into Portuguese and Slovenian.

In 2005 Eddie Russell wrote and published his second book, now in its second edition, on the mystery of faith called,
It's Faith Jim, but not as we know it.

In the August 26 2006 New Zealand Catholic Newspaper's book by Fr John Rea SM, he said, "...The author immediately takes us boldly where no Catholic writer, as far as I know, has gone before..."

On August 31 2006, a letter from Fr John Rea said, "I've heard from a lady who had just read the chapter in which he describes raising the dead nun to life when she herself had to deal with someone who was apparently dead. She drew faith from Eddie's book and the young woman came back to life."
