Faith Ablaze International Ministries began in 2012 and operates among the nations of this world. Our team comprises Christian partners who are pastors, church leaders, retirees and professionals of different ethnicities and nationalities. We are united at the cross of Jesus, our Lord and Saviour.
We are motivated by Scriptural truths found in:
Mathew 28: 18-20
18 And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
John 4: 23-24
23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."
VISION: We are equippers and mobilizers of Christ-believers, especially next generation pastors and leaders, into godliness and loving service for God’s glory among the nations.
MISSION: We partner with local churches, fellowships and individuals to bring biblical teachings and purposes to Christ-believers in obedience to the Great Commission.
We aim to impact future intercultural missionaries to serve God to the best of their abilities through a mentoring process.
We aim to coordinate short-term mission exposure trips with churches and individuals who desire to experience intercultural ministries.
We aim to consistently bless and bring the needs of people among the nations to God through prayer.
We believe the Bible to be the fully inspired, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, fully divine and fully human. We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit whose indwelling and filling enables the Christian to live a godly life.
We believe in the bodily resurrection and judgment of all man. Believers are resurrected to enjoy eternal life with God, and unbelievers are resurrected to eternal suffering apart from God.
We believe all who are united to the risen and ascended Son of God are members of Christ’s universal church. We also believe that the local expressions of the universal body of Christ are essential in the plan, purpose and the glory of God.
We believe it is the responsibility of all who are saved to work toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission. All worldly and personal ambitions should be subordinated to that supreme command of making disciples. We believe that human betterment and social justice are essential products of the Gospel.
Our values are rooted in what we believe, stand for and are passionate about; therefore, the acronym INTEGRITY is appropriate as we move to serve people among the nations:
In constant communion with the Triune God as we serve others.
Nothing and no one can separate us from the love of God.
Truth of Scripture to be our foundation in our interactions.
Enthusiasm and endurance to accompany our steps of faith.
Glory of the Triune God to be our focus.
Resting in the Triune God’s Presence to be our regular act of worship.
Imitating Christ’s humility in our partnerships so that we may remain united.
Trusting the Triune God for the constant presence of anointing, privilege of sacrificial
service, protection of our faith and provisions for our needs.
Yeshua (Jesus) is the only way, truth and life and all who call upon Him will be saved.

Discipling / Mentoring

Sprints is a metaphor used to describe a short-term mission trip lasting 5 days – 24 months.

ENGAGING COMMUNITY LEADERS OF A
Published by: Global Proclamation Commission for Trainers of Pastors
May 02, 2017
In the last three months, I hosted meetings with various groups of Garifuna leaders from the Atlantida region of Honduras. My stipulation to the Garifuna community leader who was helping me coordinate these meetings was very clear: only those aged 21 years – 50 years were to be carefully selected and invited. They needed to be current or emerging leaders in the community...
