GREETINGS FROM PRESIDENT

Currently, there are missionaries in India, China, and Mexico who are associated with WMCGW; and it is our ardent prayer that more missionaries will come forth, dedicating to live their lives for Jesus Christ through WMCGW.
WMCGW educates and molds passionate Christians for World Missions as well as directs missionaries to cope with various situations in the mission field through high- level Christian education.

We believe God to have revealed Himself as the Trinity in unity as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit- three Persons and yet one God (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; I Cor. 8:6). The Bible, including both the Old and New Testaments, is a divine revelation inspired by the Holy Spirit (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).
Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, which is to say, He is Himself very God; He took upon Himself our nature, being conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary; He died upon the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sin of the world; He arose from the dead in the body in which He was crucified; He ascended into heaven in that body glorified, where He is now, our interceding High Priest; He will come again personally and visibly to set up His Kingdom and to judge the quick and the dead (Col. 1:15; Phil. 2:5-8; Matt. 1:18-25; I Peter 2:24-25; Luke 24; Heb. 4:14-16; Acts 1:9-11; I Thess. 4:16-18; Matt. 25:31-46; Rev. 11:15-17; 20:4-6; 11-15).
Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and, in that sense, is lost; that is true of all men, and, except a man who is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God; salvation is by grace through faith in Christ who His own self bore our sins in His own body on the tree; the retribution of the wicked and unbelieving and the reward of the righteous are everlasting and, as the reward is conscious, so is the retribution (Gen. 1:26-27; Rom. 3:10, 23; John. 3:16; Acts 13:38-39, 4:12; Matt. 25:46; 2Cor. 5:1; 2Thess. 1:7-10).
The Church is an elect company of believers baptized by the Holy Spirit into one body; its mission is to witness concerning its Head, Jesus Christ, preaching the Gospel among all nations; it will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air, where He appears to set up His kingdom (Acts 2:41; 15:13-17; Eph. 1:3-6; I Cor. 12:12-13; Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:6-8; I Thess. 4:16-18).
Our student’s achievement and performance outcomes are 9% in graduation rate and 73% in retention rate for 2021-2022 academic year. And all the graduates are doing their role in the area of church ministry or as a missionary. (9 Pastors, 11 Missionaries, and 19 Lay Ministers)
