Dr. Nathaniel Burton, Presiding Bishop, based on a vision our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ gave him. “to be a Surrogate Leader to the messengers and Pastors of the mission for the churches throughout this country who are standing alone, small in membership, women in ministry, the elderly and to empower the youth of our society. With the purpose of effectively doing the missionary work and carrying out the work of Christian Education, and for the promotion of any kind of Christian Benevolent or charitable work that we may see further to do: and for the purpose of maintaining the unity of our faith and practice, ordaining and establishing ministry.

This ministry is redefining the way ministry is done in America. We believe that the body of Christ is too diverse and too dynamic to be defined by our traditional ways of thinking. We believe that as a ministry we are to be open to the various needs of society. Our non-traditional approach to ministry is what makes our history distinct from the rest. Our worship services are always open to the public and as time passes more and more people will become connected to us and join us in preaching the gospel, winning the lost and making disciples, which is what Jesus taught his disciples to do in order to establish the “Ministry” (Matthew 28).
