Soul Care Ministries International | Christian Outreach Ministry

Christian Ministry must transcend the pulpit and four walls of the church building to reach out to communities where people live, work, play, are institutionalized and where students go to school.

“Unless the LORD builds the house,They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.”

                                                               (King Solomon, Psalm 127:1 NKJV)

God’s vision for the universal Church (body of Christ) and Christian ministry is the same today as it was for the early church in the book of Acts.  In Acts 2, the day of Pentecost, the disciples did not stay in the upper room after the Holy Spirit fell upon them.  They went out and began to preach the gospel of Christ and minister to people of all nations.  That means that the early church of Acts was “a church without walls”.  God never gave them a chance to build four walls.   Church is not a building.  We, Christians, are the church…the ‘body of Christ’… the “ecclesia“…the ‘called out ones’ (cf. 1 Peter 2:9-10).  Laboring and prospering with the Lord comes only when the Lord builds the ministry (cf. Psalm 27:1).  This is depicted in the featured image by Artist, Leonard Freeman entitled Lord Build This House“.

The word ‘ministry’ comes from the Greek ‘diakoneo’, meaning ‘to serve’.  Lovingly serving the needs of our neighbor with humility and devotion to God epitomizes Christian ministry.  In the New Testament, ministry of the gospel is descriptive of service to God in the Name of Jesus, the Christ.  Jesus provided the ultimate example and pattern for ministry – He came not to receive service, but to give it (cf. Matthew 20:20, Mark 10:45 and John 13:1-17).

Christian ministry is not limited to those in vocational ministry (i.e. apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher).  It is the duty of every Christian to serve one another with love, humility and joy.  Ministry is not just a vocation, but a lifestyle, which can be followed in any calling (cf. Romans 12:20:26, Galatians 1:10 and Colossians 4:12).   We worship God through our obedience to Him in every area of life, every day of our lives, not forsaking the gathering together of ourselves and exhorting one another (cf.  Hebrews 10:25).

Our ministry emphasis is on sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others so they can receive Him as their personal Savoir, experience Him as Lord of their life and experience His benefits.  As a result of the ministry vision God has deposited into our founder’s spirit, SCMi™ stands ready to serve the Lord in spirit and in truth as God uses us to come alongside the local church, the diverse and multi-cultural faith community, and the universal body of Christ to:

  • Exhalt the LORD, our GOD (2 Samuel 22:47);
  • Equip ministry leaders and laity for works of service such that the people of God may be built up in their faith (Ephesians 4:11-15);
  • Empower people by providing church and community based Christian ministry, religious counseling, training and education,  and resources (Matthew 28:19);
  • Enrich the people of God by meeting needs through ministry outreach  (2 Corinthians 9:11);
  • Encourage believers and leading others to Christ (Ephesians 2:10);
  • Exhort believers, to faithful living, by meeting them at their point and place of need while ministering consolation, comfort, spiritual direction and counsel in such a way that they receive help and experience holistic healing (2 Timothy 4:2, Hebrews 3:13 );
  • Edify individuals, couples and families by sharing the great wisdom of the scriptures in winning souls for Christ throughout the world (Proverbs 11:30); and
  • Evangelize through ministry of the life-changing, edifying, healing, empowering and liberating proclamation of the Good News of the Gospel (Mark 16:15-16).
