Master Builder Christian Church is a local independent self-governing body with complete freedom to fellowship and form relationships with all those of like Christian faith and vision. This church seeks to work together with area churches as much as possible with common goals for the Kingdom of God. We desire to have solid relationships which are maintained through blessing and hardship, so that the world might see Jesus through our unity and love.
The History of Master Builder Christian Church
Believing the heart of God for this present generation is to return the church to the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ, Master Builder Ministries was founded in 1995. Our name, Master Builder Ministries, reflects our belief that Jesus is the designer and builder of this ministry (Matthew 16:18). Building on a correct foundation is very important. The apostle Paul stated in 1 Corinthians 3:10, “According to the grace of God which was given me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation and another builds on it.” The correct foundation is not just what Jesus did in redemption, but what He commands as Lord. As a church body we have come to Jesus for our purpose, focus and vision.
Through the years we have seen our primary mission is to:
- win the un-churched and to assimilate them into a committed body of Spirit filled Christians.
- equip and mobilize believers to fulfill their God-given purpose by functioning fruitfully both in the local church and in every aspect of their lives.
- pass a Godly heritage on to the next generation through impartation of true wisdom, revelation, understanding, righteousness, justice, prudence, discretion, knowledge and dependence upon God, in order that they would be equipped for life, made dynamic in service, and powerful in ministry.
- see the five-fold gifting of the church joined together with the parents in order to equip them in the Biblical mandate of teaching and training their children.
- influence the community, the state, and the world through the life and witness of mature Christians, thereby, taking the Kingdom of God into our culture, not the culture of the world into the Church
Master Builder Ministries is the foundation that enables our individual ministries, each with their own specific purpose, to build a Greater Fall River community that is positive, alive and true to the Lord’s expectation.
- Master Builder Christian Church is non-denominational and teaches that Jesus Christ is the light of the world. The church is to be the salt and light of the world, whose primary purpose is the evangelization of the world and the edification of believers.
- East Gate Christian Academy prepares tomorrow’s leaders academically, morally, and spiritually for college and beyond.
- Master Builder Institute for Leadership Development (MBILD), provides a Global Church-Based Theological Education that integrates character, skills, and academics into hands-on, apprenticeship type training and development under qualified, proven ministers of the Gospel within a community setting. In conjunction with Vision University, training modules are designed to lead to degrees in ministry and theology.
Globally, we have taken part in the training of foreign leaders in Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Kenya, Ghana, and Zimbabwe. Locally we are training pastors and leaders from the American and Portuguese community. Projects with shared resources with area churches are happening through the building of relationships with area pastors in prayer. Community outreaches are being coordinated with local churches. And through this unity we believe that a great blessing will come to the Fall River Area.
In 2020, our ministry entered into a new season as we took ownership of a new property in Fall River. We believe God has greatly positioned us here to serve the local body of believers, while making a positive impact on our local community, the nation, and the world. With our eyes on the Lord and His kingdom, we are prepared to obey His direction for the challenges of the next ten years and beyond. We hope you can be a partner with us.
