And the list can go on and on!
Our Mission and Vision is one that
is to fulfill the Mission and Vision of our Lord.
Precisely, to preach forgiveness of sin
and healing to the sick.
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath
anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me
to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim
the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our
God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn
in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for
mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that
they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD,
that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:1-3
Ephesians 4:11-13
11 And
he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets;
and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and
teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of
the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the
knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man,
unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of
Christ:
2 Corinthians 5:20
20 Now
then we are ambassadors for
Christ, as though God did beseech you
by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be
ye reconciled to God.
Habakkuk 2:2-3
2 And
the LORD answered me, and said, Write the
vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he
may run that readeth it. 3 For the vision is yet for
an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak,
and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it
will surely come, it will not tarry.
Our Future and Our Present
are running concurrently
together.
Our Future
&
Our Present
God
has NUMEROUS
possibilities in the Future
for those of US who are
in the Present
Lift up your heads, O ye
gates; and be ye lift up, ye
everlasting doors; and the
King of glory shall come in.
Psalm 24:7
…if I will not open you the
windows of heaven, and pour you
out a blessing, that there shall
not be room enough to receive it.
Malachi 3:10b

Who We Are
The entire United Fellowship International
Ministries team rescues those who have fallen into
the entrapments and clinches of Satan, those
whose reputations have been tarnished or
destroyed. Their hopes of being good soldiers,
good stewards, good servants have been crushed.
We pick up those who have been left for dead on
the Jericho Roads of life.
Who We Are
We are a chosen generation,
a royal priesthood, an holy
nation, a peculiar people;
that we should shew forth
the praises of him who hath
called us out of darkness into
his marvellous light; whom
God has called out to bring
in those who have been left
out and pushed aside.
Who We Are
We are a special unit that has
been charged by God to bind up
the brokenhearted, proclaim
liberty to the captives, recover
the lost, gather those who have
been looked over and left for
dead.
Who We Are
We
have
been
commissioned to speak
life to the dead, and
comfort all those who
mourn. It is our mission
as Ambassadors to bring
them into a place of
acceptance and healing.
Who We Are
The Pastors, Elders and Evangelist Missionaries
are specially trained people for various divisions
who have been ordained and commissioned by
God. We are skilled and pre-prepared for the
tasks at hand, and ready to fulfill God’s purpose
in the earth.
Let’s Move Forward Now!
The Holy Ghost challenged us to position
ourselves in faith. He challenged us “To go
forward, NOW!” He challenged us to preach,
teach, talk, counsel and support those who have
never been preached to nor taught the gospel of
Jesus Christ.
We shall become the heard ‘ofs’. For God shall
perform those things in us, through us and for
us, that was never heard of.
“Where Do We Go From Here
That We May Move Forward…
For We Must Move Forward NOW!”

Writing Our Own Manuals & Materials
Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.
Job 8:7
• The Ambassador Ministries’ goal is to promote and implement
materials that will enhance the local church membership in
growth through knowledge and productivity.
•
The Ambassador Ministries have been challenged to write and
create ideas that will change the minds of people, so they will
come out of that which was left behind. (doctrines, principles)
• The Ambassador Ministries’ focus is solely on aiding and
assisting every local church ministry. Every church will be able to
adapt and believe in the vision that is set forth by the
International work through provided teaching materials for all
areas of ministry.
