MFM is a Christian church. According to the group's literature, it is committed to "the Revival of Apostolic Signs, Holy Ghost fireworks and the unlimited demonstration of the power of God to deliver to the uttermost". As the name would imply, the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries places a great emphasis on wonders, miracles and other Apostolic acts.
The General overseer, Daniel Olukoya describes MFM as "a do-it-yourself Gospel ministry where your hands are trained to wage war and your fingers to do battle, in prayers and supplication". This militant tone is reflected throughout the teachings of MFM, where it calls upon members to become "aggressive Christians,"and some of the groups founded by MFM such as the Prayer Warriors, Territorial Intercessors and God's Violent Army.
MFM Headquarters in Lagos claims to be the largest church in Africa, with "attendance of over 200,000 in single meetings."
Even in its US branches the group uses a worship style typical of a Nigerian church. Most women wear long skirts and everyone wears a hat or other head covers. The congregation often prays aloud together, all standing and using a voice louder than what most North American Christians are used to. Prayers tend to be repetitions of faith based claims, spiritual decrees, and commanding prayers often directly from scripture and with an emphasis on safety found in Jesus. The practices are based on the same ideals advocated by traditional American.
