About Master's Call Ministries International

Master's Call Ministries International is a non-denominational non-profit 501c3 charitable organization with a mission to continue the mission of Christ on this earth. We do this: (1) through raising funds to support orphans and underprivileged children in a way that is geared toward discipleship; (2) through training people to be equipped and empowered to be effective ministers of the gospel; (3) through engaging in local evangelism and discipleship; and (4) through supporting local ministries in whatever capacity we are able.  Regardless of denominational lines drawn by man, we seek to help and work with ministries and individuals that are passionate about the advancement of the Gospel and are willing to put truth above tradition, faith above fear, and hearts that hunger for more of God above all.

HISTORY

In 2014, my wife and I set out to start a church. Little did we know that God wanted to take us in a different direction. Our passion had always been to seek out the truth of God's Kingdom and help the church to grow closer and closer to God's vision for His bride (the church). In 2016, we connected with an orphanage in Sierra Leone, Africa, and in 2017 we made our first ever mission trip there! We came back to the United States with a renewed passion for mission work and a lot of plans. Shortly thereafter, another non-profit organization asked us to take up their mission work because they could no longer continue as they were. In short order, a two-person operation became a full-fledged organization. Our first board meeting was held in May 2017, and our status as a charitable organization was finalized in July 2017. Since then, we have built a school in Sierra Leone, Africa that is intended to be free (for the primary school) to all in that community; and we have begun working on setting up an orphanage in India. 

 

Our deepest desires are to see the Kingdom of God grow bigger, see the bride of Christ grow purer, to care for orphans & underprivileged children, and see the power of God manifest greater than the days of old.

 

STATEMENT OF BELIEFS

We believe, above all, that the advancement of the Kingdom of God supersedes minor disagreements on points of theology. Therefore, the major indisputable beliefs that we hold to are:

  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, was buried, and was resurrected 3 days later.

  • The Bible is the inerrant Word of God, proven accurate and reliable by an overwhelming amount of evidence.

  • The only way to get to Heaven is through Jesus Christ.

  • Salvation is more than what we do. It is a relationship with God (Mat. 7:23). We do not draw the line as to the exact point  at which a person “is saved.” Instead, we teach all of the following and lead the person into a life-long discipleship with Christ (Romans 9:15-16):

    • Believe (put your trust in God) – Rom. 10:10

    • Count the costs of following Christ (spiritual warfare, living your life for Christ, persecution, etc.) – Luke 14:25-33

    • Repent (renounce your old way of life and resolve to live your life for Christ) – Acts 2:38

    • Confess Jesus as your new Lord – Rom. 10:10

    • Be baptized in water & the Holy Spirit – Rom. 6:3-5, Acts 1:5 (it was not water baptism He was talking about)

  • The supernatural gifts and callings of God through the Holy Spirit are still in effect and have a vital role to play in evangelism and church function.

  • Righteousness is a way of life, not merely a status. Righteousness is imputed to us through the work on the cross, but it is not perpetual. As we make mistakes and bad choices, we must confess our sins and ask for forgiveness, and make an earnest commitment not to continue with a pattern of sin. 

  • Hell is a real place that was not intended for humans, but rather for Satan. Who you follow determines where you go (Christ to Heaven or Satan to Hell).

As we encounter minor differences in beliefs, we believe that as we grow and study the Word of God together (not in arrogance, but in search for the truth), the Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth. Minor areas of disagreement include (but are not limited to): eschatology (study of end-times), the Lord's Supper, head coverings, once-saved-always-saved, predestination, observing the Sabbath, and more.

"Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea."
Matthew 18:3-6
Our Affiliates

From time to time we have requests from other ministries to partner with or become affiliated with our ministry. Although the opportunity to partner with other ministries is exciting, we must be careful about our affiliations. Paul writes to the Corinthian church [1 Cor. 5:11] and tells them, "But now I wrote to you to not associate/intermingle with any brother being named: a fornicator, or a hoarder of wealth, or an idolator, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or excessively covetous or predatory; to the one, such do not even eat with." These types of exhortation are also found in other New Testament scriptures.

There are numerous reasons Paul does not want us to associate or intermingle with these groups. First, the scriptures tell us "bad company corrupts good morals" [1 Cor. 15:33]. Second, who we are named with affects our witness as well as Christ's reputation (if it can be affected). Finally, it affects our ability to minister to others (lack of power, lack of resources, lack of time).

The ministries we will not associate with include but are not limited to:

  • Anything perceived as a scam or as engaged in activities that could be deemed fraudulent.

  • Any ministry requesting funds and/or the use of our name without any offer to contribute to the work of this ministry in some practical way.

  • Any ministry that cannot provide sufficient evidence that it is legitimate and is in legitimate need of assistance.

  • Any ministry that is deemed as heretical or leading others astray (the assessment of a ministry is a responsibility we take very seriously).

  • Any ministry that willfully facilitates or tolerates immorality or sinful lifestyles (as clearly outlined in scripture, as opposed to those with questionable justification).

    • examples: fornication, homosexuality, drunkenness, gossip, addictions, etc.

  • Any ministry that is otherwise deemed unacceptable according to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
