Learn More about our work

Our Mission

The mission of Hope Christian Fellowship International Church Africa Ministries is the mission of Jesus…Luke 4:18-19,
“The spirit of the Lord is upon me because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

Our mission is the Great Commandment, Mathew 22:37-40 and commission (Mathew 28:18-19-20) reaching nations for Jesus. To love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and to minister before the Lord through praying the word, fasting and intercession, developing an intimate relationship with God the Father, God the Son, Jesus, and God the Holy Spirit.
It is our mission to love others by modeling and sharing the love of Father God and His Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It is our passion to proclaim the Father’s heart of love, to the lost, last,least poor, orphaned and brokenhearted so all will have an opportunity to embrace the Father’s heart of love( Mathew 25:40 and Isaiah 58 compels us.

As an end-time prophetic forerunner messenger preparing the way for the return of Jesus Christ, it is my mission to proclaim the Kingdom of God on earth, speaking the Word in truth, with power and authority in order to destroy the works of the devil so individuals will be set free.

When individuals are set free and embrace the love of Jesus, the cross, and their identity as sons and daughters of Abba Father, I believe, they will rise up and walk fully into their destiny.

It is therefore, our mission and passion to disciple individuals to live their lives from a place of intimacy and fellowship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit and to know their identity in Christ, so they can walk in their destiny which we believe will bring transforming revival to their families, churches, villages and nations, which will usher in the “end-time” harvest and the return of King Jesus.

(2 Timothy 4:2-5) “Preach the Word, be ready in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching, for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching eyes. They will heap up for themselves teachers and they will turn their eyes away from the truth and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist. Fulfill your ministry.”

Our Vision

Jesus lived a life of intimate relationship with His Father in complete obedience, doing only what His Father told Him to do, and declaring the Kingdom of God is on earth. When He went home to the Father, Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit to be our comforter and helper so we may live in the same intimate fellowship with our Lord, in complete obedience, with love and power to live triumphant lives, bringing the love and fragrance of Christ wherever we go. (2 Corinthians 2:14-17)

We believe, because of grace and the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, that it is possible for every believer to live a life of absolute surrender and reckless abandonment towards God. It is through love and intimacy with God the Father, the grace of Jesus, His Son and the Holy Spirit (the Great Commandment) that we live and it is out of the overflow of our voluntary love and obedience for Jesus that we have love and passion for others (the Great Commission) destroying the works of the devil over people’s lives, cities, and nations. We believe “Love” IS the heartbeat of God for revival.

It is our vision to see individuals fully understand their identity, authority and position in Christ, coming to a place of intimate passion and love for Jesus, willing to be set apart for Him, denying themselves by living the “Sermon on the Mount” lifestyle and taking up His mission, Luke 4:18-19.

It is our vision that individuals would have an understanding of Jesus as Bridegroom, Jesus as King and Jesus as Judge as we prepare for His soon to come return.
It is our vision to be used by God to prepare the way of His return by teaching, preaching and ministering as intercessory missionaries and end-time prophetic messengers who help equip and train individuals to live their lives from a place of intimacy and absolute surrender with prompt obedience to God…touching hearts with the love of the Father, so they will receive His love and then give His love away to others.
It is also our vision to see Houses of Prayer raised up in every city and nation.- heart cry of prayer move for all nation's new reformation and Revival.

We believe this will create a habitation of HIS Presence where individuals are free to go deeper into intimacy and fellowship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, thus fulfilling the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-40) and then preparing them to “Do” the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). The motivation focus to our vision is All Africa and Beyond Shall be saved by His richness of Grace in the Book of Ephesians!

Statment Of Faith

We believe in the one High God, who out of love created the beautiful world and everything in it. He created man and wanted man to be happy in the world. God loves the world and every nation and tribe on the earth. We have known this High God in the darkness, and now we know him in the light. God promised in the book of his word, the bible, that he would save the world and all the nations and tribes.

We believe that God made good his promise by sending his son, Jesus Christ, a man in the flesh, a Jew by tribe, born in a little village, who left his home and was always on safari doing good, curing people by the power of God, teaching about God and man, showing that the meaning of religion is love. He was rejected by his people, tortured and nailed hands and feet to a cross, and died. He lay buried in a grave, but the hyenas did not touch him, and on the third day, he rose from the grave. He ascended to the skies. He is the Lord.

We believe that all our sins are forgiven through him. All who have faith in him must be sorry for their sins, be baptized in the Holy Spirit of God, live the rules of love and share the bread together in love, to announce the good news to others until Jesus comes again. We are waiting for him. He is alive. He lives. This we believe. Amen.

We believe that embracing the Father’s heart of love is what every human being is longing for. We believe that this longing is only satisfied through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe in the Greatest Commandment to Love the Lord God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and to love your neighbor as yourself. (Mark 12:29-31) and the Great Commission that every Christian is to spread the Gospel to the lost and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything that is commanded (Matt. 28:18-20). This can be done by preaching the Word, praying, living righteous lives according to the Bible and the sacrificial giving of believers.

The Bible: We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testament is fully God’s word and is divinely inspired and without error. (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

The Trinity: We believe that there is one God who manifests Himself in three persons each with His own personality; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matt. 28:19)

Salvation: We believe that all humanity is lost in sin and needs to turn from their sin and trust personally in the Savior, Jesus Christ, who is the only way to salvation and restoration with God the Father. We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s own Son, who came to this earth to reveal His Father’s heart and to bring all those who would receive Him into the glorious family of His Father. (Eph 2:1-10, John 1:12-13; John 17:6-7).

The Deity of Jesus Christ: We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, His death on the cross on behalf of all humanity, His burial, His bodily resurrection, His sinless life, His miracles, His complete victory over the powers of Satan, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His High-Priestly ministry in the heavenliest and His physical return to the earth and the events relevant to the following scriptures: (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Titus 2:12-14; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10) and to receive His righteous inheritance both living and dead, and to execute judgment upon the wicked.

The Holy Spirit: We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling Christians are enabled to live godly lives and minister super-naturally. We acknowledge the blessed Holy Spirit as Comforter, the Helper, the Revealer of Christ, and His work on the cross. We believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available and operational in the body of Christ today. We believe in the baptism and indwelling of the Holy Spirit, with the endowment of power to witness, with the accompanying gifts, graces, and fruit of the Spirit. (Acts 1:8; Acts 10:44 -46; 19:1-6; 1 Corinthians 12:5-11; Galatians 5:24; Romans 5:5)

Healing and Deliverance: We believe that divine healing and deliverance is part of the great gift of salvation. We believe that healing is provided for the spirit, soul and body through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross. (Mark 16: 17-18).

Unity of Believers: We believe in the spiritual unity of all who believe in our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe all Christians are called into a life of separation from sinful practices, and that they should take every opportunity to promote righteousness and godliness. (James 4:4; Romans 12:1-2; 1 John 2:15- 17; 11 Corinthians 6:13-18; Romans 13:1-10

The Church: We believe the church consists of all those who truly believe in Jesus Christ and in His atoning death, and who trust in Him as their personal Lord and Savior. He gave His church the ordinances Holy Communion and water Baptism (by immersion) in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, on the authority of Jesus’ name. The Church exists to carry on the mission of Jesus Christ to further advance His Kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, discipling the nations, and teaching them to love and obey God. We understand that God is continually restoring and uncovering truths by the Holy Spirit to His Church and therefore we place no limit on further revelation. However, all revelation must be substantiated and validated according to the Scriptures.

Heaven and Hell: We believe heaven and hell are real places. We believe the lost are condemned to eternal damnation in hell and the saved unto eternal life in heaven.
