Who we are...

Master Builder Ministries 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. 
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.

The mission...

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.

Our local ministries...

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.
  • Assembleia de Deus serves our Brazilian-Portuguese brothers and sisters in Christ, and is part of Master Builder Christian Church.  We are two cultures, with two different languages, yet we are one church body.
  • East Gate Christian Academy is a K4-12 school that prepares tomorrow’s leaders academically, morally, and spiritually for college and beyond.

Global impact...

Globally, we have taken part in the training of foreign leaders in Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Kenya, Ghana, and Zimbabwe. Currently we are training pastors and leaders from the American and Brazilian communities locally, nationally, and worldwide in coordination with Master Builder Christian International University (MBCIU), formerly Master Builder Institute for Leadership Development (MBILD).  Through MBCIU, we are helping train, equip, and develop church leaders through masters and doctoral programs, while preparing to launch a full slate of undergraduate programs.  Click here to view MBCIU's Racially Nondiscriminatory Policy.

A passion for education and discipleship training has always been at the heart of Master Builder Ministries.  We are excited to answer God's call to the work which God has called us here in Fall River, in our nation, and the world.
