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 G OD is upon me; because the L ORD 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 L ORD, 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 L ORD, 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 L ORD 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 Our Present Our Future and Our Present are running concurrently together. &
God has NUMEROUS possibilities in the Future for those of US who are in the Present …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 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

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.

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.
