To establish a model Christian local Church and missions base; take the gospel to the un-reached people and prepare Christians for the work of ministry.
Ministering the love and power of God through Jesus Christ to a rough and hurting world.
“Ministering the love and power of God in Christ Jesus to a rough and hurting world.”
We believe that the best way to do this is through the faithful consistent proclamation of the Gospel to all peoples without distinction. As a ministry, we function with the conviction that everyone has a divine right to hear the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ and to be presented the opportunity to receive and share in the promised salvation and its ensuing benefits. In order to do this well our vision is 3 pronged.
1. Pearl Haven Christian Center: Planted in 1993 in Mbale, is purposed to be a model local church. Providing a place of rest and refuge and fellowship for God’s people living in a rough and hurting world; nurturing Christians to maturity and equipping them to serve God in this present age by insisting on being bible based and Holy Spirit led. Here we model, challenge and encourage our church members to participate actively in the ongoing work of evangelism and discipleship as we seek to obey the great commission.
2. Global Outreach: This is the frontline missions arm of our ministry representing our core goal to take the gospel to unreached people. Specifically, our vision is to take the gospel through Uganda northward along the Nile river all the way to the Mediterranean and the nations around it. Global Outreach is therefore primarily focused on facilitating, networking, mobilizing and executing this mission mandate. Here we partner with other like-minded individuals, organizations and churches to carry out gospel cantered campaigns, conferences, short term and long term mission trips and outreach ministry events in and around the countries that lie northward along the Nile starting in Uganda.
3. School of Ministry: As a missions based organization we recognize that faithful and effective gospel ministry needs skilled workmen. Those who through the witness of their lives and doctrine in service to God and the church have been well equipped, trained, proved worthy of the call that God has placed on their lives. Through the School of Ministry, we bring ministers of the gospel together train them in preparation for church planting, service in already established churches, frontline mission work as well as imparting practical skills in administration, stewardship of finances and information technology. This part of the ministry is largely still in the pipe lines.
