Proclamation of the Kingdom of God

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 16:15). Before the ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ He had commanded his followers to proclaim the gospel and invite everyone to repent and believe in the good news to enter the kingdom of God. Anointing Fire Catholic Ministry said “Yes” to this commandment for evangelization and inviting everyone to believe in our Lord Jesus Christ.


Seek out the lost and Rejoice with the Lord!

We are to proclaim the good news of Christ together with the Church. We are called to share the love of Christ to all who are lost and yearning for something greater in life. There will be more joy in heaven in the presence of angels of God when a soul is united with its creator.  We strive to bring the light that comes from the Good News about the glory of Christ into the mindsthat have been kept in the dark. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
