BISHOP MJF MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL

Making Jesus Christ Known to Others

Our Story

We’ve loved every minute of our journey

THE MAN

Bishop Freeman was called and raised up, as all of God’s servants are, “in due time”. Called out of his home town of New Orleans, Louisiana in 1973, where he was trained to be a Son by Van and Vera Nelson, Bishop Freeman sojourned in the “city of Brotherly Love” (Philadelphia, Pa.). Like Abraham, he was looking for a city that had foundations, whose builder and maker was God. Bishop Freeman, known as “Uhuru”, connected with the “Institute of African Learning”, an independent African-American shule’ (school), where he served as a teacher and mentor. The Institute fostered cultural enrichment, job training and entrepreneurial development, as a means of developing young, African-American males. Little did he know that this would be foundational to the "calling upon his life".

THE MINISTRY

On returning from a Pastor’s Conference, in January 1993, Bishop Freeman received an Apostolic call – “to build a strong “governing anointing” in the Northeast region of the USA. This anointing would have influence, as far west as, Detroit and Chicago”.

Upon hearing those words, Bishop Freeman began to share and speak to those close to him, what the Lord had said. It was not long, that Bishop Freeman became re-acquainted with Apostle Corletta Vaughn, of DETROIT, MI. Apostle Vaughn discerned the Apostolic Gifting in Bishop Freeman and invited him to the “School of Wisdom” Conference, sponsored by “Go Tell It Ministry Worldwide Network of Churches” (GTIMWNC). The next year, Bishop and Mrs. Freeman joined the ranks of GTIMWNC Fellowship and received mentoring from Apostle Vaughn. In June of 1999, the fifth year of being in the “Network”, Bishop Freeman was ordained as a National Presbyter, to the EASTERN REGION.  

THE MESSAGE

The Ministry of Reconciliation

The Restoration of Glory

....I have separated you from your mother's womb, that I might reveal MY SON IN YOU...


...IMMEDIATELY,  I CONFERRED NOT WITH FLESH AND BLOOD,  NOR THOSE WHO WERE APOSTLES BEFORE ME.  I withdrew to hear the VOICE THAT WAS SPEAKING TO ME...


The message is that God is personally present in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against (men) their trespasses (but cancelling them), and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor)

God chose to reveal His Son in us that the world would be drawn back to God as His Son in us was lifted up, causing all men to be drawn to Him…


...I will give you as a covenant to the people...through you they will see all my good plans that I have for them.

You and the children that are with you are for signs and wonders!...

THE MISSION

Bishop Freeman is called to search out and establish new territories for local churches to be planted; to equip and develop pastors and church leadership for the continuance of those local churches. We are to enlarge our sphere of ministry by leading ministry teams into local, regional, national and global ministry. We are to create wealth and determine destiny for disadvantaged communities; rebuild the waste places; bring water to the dry places.

Reformation Leadership

Mission Statement

The mission of MJF MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL, its Branch Churches and Affiliate Ministries is to know God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent.


We are to make known to all peoples, cultures, and nations everywhere God’s call to reconciliation, to forgiveness through the finished work of Christ, to wholeness through the empowerment of His Spirit, and to a manifested and predetermined destiny as the “Sons of God”.

The Word of God is our standard and guide in all we do and propose. It is through the anointing of the Holy Spirit and the wisdom that results from seeking God, that clarity, vision and understanding of function emerges. It is through the confirmation of God’s people that vision can become a reality and that the prayers of the saints can result in great movements of God in our world.


The call to join the Apostolic Movement: a movement of God into the harvest fields of the world; to engage in Apostolic Evangelism that this world cannot resist; to walk in the apostolic footsteps of our Lord and Savior, would mean:

  • A church focused on the message of the finished work of Christ, the renewing of the Spirit and the emergence and advancement of the Kingdom of God
  • A church with sound doctrine, integrating faith and learning
  • A church with a holy passion, surrendered to the purposes of God
  • A church, which reaches and multiplies beyond all boundaries, whether religious, ethnic or national
  • A church that models Jesus
  • A church that is relevant in the local communities
  • A church where there is true fellowship and true worship
  • A church that integrates evangelism with discipleship
  • A church that invests in people and builds community

We believe that the local church is God’s instrument to transform society. We believe that local leaders are to be entrusted with the privilege and responsibility of fulfilling their corporate destiny. This, in short, represents the theological and practical basis for this ministry and the statements that follow:


We are a TEAMCHURCH®. We are connected by relationship and gifting (functionality) to the Body of Christ. We are strengthened most by our fellowship based ontruthfulness and grace that flows from the unifying power (unity) of the Spirit.


TEAMCHURCH® fosters an environment of intimacy and trust, where like-minded, gifted leaders merge their skills, talents and expertise into a corporate “Move of God”. Leadership ability, diversity and style, corporate direction, spiritual well-being, organizational visions and destinies are all unified according to the measure of the “grace of Christ”.


For, …There is only One LORD, ONE FAITH and ONE BAPTISM; ONE GOD and FATHER of us all; WHO works through all and WHO is in all.


We believe our mission drives everything we do. We strive to make the message of the gospel relevant to our culture by remaining faithful to God, by knowing Him in order to make Him known, by lifting up the Name of Jesus, by enlarging and staking out the territories that have been given to us, by rebuilding the wasted cities (the desolation of many generations) and by showing love and sensitivity to the world.


We accept all who come to us, seeing the most desperate sinner with the potential to become a whole and devoted follower of Jesus, the Christ. We see smaller groups and teams within the larger Body of Christ as the best environment for the birth, mentoring, encouragement, and care of new believers.

We view our local churches as mission outposts. Our pastors are appointed not just to a local congregation and building, but to the evangelization of whole communities, towns and cities.


We see ourselves as an Apostolic Movement. We are a “sent” people, charged with the task of reaching new territories and new populations of people with the gospel. We are sound in our doctrine and in our practice. We value the guidance of the scriptures and the consensus of the Church throughout her history.


We are to be a holy people. Our conduct and our teaching are to reflect the holiness and love of God. We seek nothing less than the healing of spirit, soul and body of all who come under our care.


As members of the Body of Christ and Sons of the emerging Kingdom of God, we are a prophetic people. For as God has chosen to make known the riches of His glory upon the vessels of His mercy – which He prepared in advance for glory - even us whom He called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles.


As He says also in Hosea, "I will call those who were not my people, 'my people, and her who was not beloved, beloved and it shall be that in the place where it was said to them, you are not my people, there they shall be called “sons of the living God”."


Beloved, now are we the “sons of God”. Our corporate destiny, as the Church, is focused on fulfilling what has been written by the prophets, so as to become all that the Father has called us to be and living holy lives to the glory of God. We declare and decree that, ”We will “love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and love others as much as we love ourselves” (Mark 12:30-3 1).


We will “go to the people of all nations and make them disciples of Jesus, the Christ” (Matthew 28:19). We will “rebuild the waste places”, “restore the breaches” and “raise up the desolations of many generations” (Isaiah 58:12).


Through maintaining the integrity of our purpose, the standards of excellence in the ministry and a continual focus on bringing effective worship, relevance and renewed hope to the communities we serve, we shall glorify God, by making Christ known.


For God’s Glory and man’s good,

Bishop Michael J. Freeman
