Pillar of Fire Ministry's
Mission Statement (ministerial commission), Vision and Purpose
are one and the same, and
that is based on Matthew 28:19 which declares: "Go ye therefore,
and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost." Simply put in today's language--our
mission statement is:
As God’s “Pillar of Fire” led the captives through the darkness of
bondage to the light of freedom; we will lead from spiritual darkness to light
through sound preaching, teaching and living example.
A home/facility for babies born addicted.
To be an integral part of the community actively involved in bringing
people back to God and His church; thus lifting the level of morality and
To bridge the gap between the churched and unchurched; believers and
non-believers; and the saved and unsaved by winning souls to the Kingdom of God
by witnessing, teaching, training and Bible Study.
There's a wonderful story in the Book of Jonah that probably all of us can identify with--running from our calling; our commission. Jonah was called and commissioned to do a specific task that was distasteful to him because of
who & what was involved in the commission--sound familiar? I'd like to share a poem that is appropriately titled; "Commissioned".
Give us a watchword for the hour,
A thrilling word, a word of power;
A battle cry, a flaming breath,
A call to conquest or to death;
A word to rouse the church from rest,
To heed the Master's high behest.
The call is given, ye hosts arise,
The watchword is EVANGELIZE!
To fallen men, a dying race,
Make known the gift of gospel grace.
The world that now in darkness lies,
O church of Christ, EVANGELIZE!
We are all called to take the Good News to the dying world. Jonah was commissioned to go to Nineveh and preach repentance . . . but, he didn't feel the people of Nineveh were worth salvation.
His disobedience almost cost, not only him, but a ship full of sailors their
lives because God sent a violent storm to seek him out. He was eventually thrown overboard where he was swallowed up by a great fish (Jonah 1:17).
How many of us today are literally in the fish's belly?
