We honor God in all we do.

Members in the Imperial Order of St. John Knights of Malta are all pledged to be the best people they can become, both socially and spiritually.
We search always new members with the same vision, to join us and work together towards it; this is done through several missions.
We will help and assist people. The poor, sick, unjustly accused, supporting freedom, free speech, and the wellbeing of the nation each Priory calls home.
We will teach our children to be honorable, responsible, and good members of society.
Soldiers who served in the armed forces, protecting freedom to be Christian.
Educational organizations which are Christian based.
Local charities with Hospitaller, Chivalric, Heraldic, and Christian goals.
Humanitarian organizations, that provides aid for Christians in foreign lands, and the individual home countries.
Christian Churches and communities throughout the world to grow.
We will help and assist the suppressed, poor, weak and unjustified.
Political / social change, open and peaceful dialogue between religions.
Promote understanding of charity and respect for God among people both inside and outside the Order.
Our philosophy must retain all members to be open in mind and hear in the spiritual needs and views of other Brother/sister Knight/Dame, this is paramount because a brother Knight shall never degrade another brother or Sisters views and beliefs.
We will push support and assist for political and ecumenical changes in areas we see and find the need as well as have the means to affect it, by having an open mind dialog in cross boarder religions.
We will defend the faith in God – Jesus Christ –and the Holy Spirit.
The Order is in constant growth and development, to always stand as good examples for all humans, this is important to start and finish so many and good projects as possible, we aim for quality, not quantity.
We understand the strength in many people lifting together.
Therefore, we search and welcome many members, more than many sponsors.
Member gives a yearly donation, by that we can make many members lift bigger projects than occasionally a big sponsor can.
Many lifting together gives more glory to God, than one sponsor does alone.
We understand that we must unite to make the change. We do however need sponsors as well as make intern growth, to be able to start financial demanding projects.
The Imperial Order of St. John Knights of Malta will become an example for all of society by holding the principles
Christ demonstrated to us: Love your brother/Sister as Christ loves you.
This shall be the rule to govern the lives of Brother/Sister Knights/Dames.
The Imperial Order of St. John Knights of Malta work toward presenting a Conduct Program on our own, this is to pass on our ideals and to benefit society.
One of the programs to illustrate this is the Esquire program. This program is designed to help teach our children. Success of this is critical to avoid making the mistakes from our past.
