“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Bethsaida Apostolic Ministry (B.A.M.); a ministry established at the heart of the city of Raleigh, North Carolina; with Pastors Moises and Karen Martinez.
A ministry born in the heart of God, and revealed to his servants through the revelation of His word. The word shows us in, Mathew 9: 35-38 the passion of Christ for man. Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
The church(ekklesia),a gathering of believers called out from their homes into the house of God to gather as an assembly, to worship, and to worship in spirit and in truth.(John:24).
As the body of Christ, the church has assumed the responsibility to reconcile the world with the Father, through the power of the blood of Jesus, calling the world to repentance and to receive forgiveness for their sins.
That being said; we believe that the church is not called to stay within four walls to receive a word from God one or two days a week, just to go home and maybe meditate on what the pastor preached on Sunday morning.
Jesus says to the disciples, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. The word command derives from the Greek word,"diatasso";( to set in order, appoint, or to give an order). We as believers have been given an order from Jesus himself, to make disciples of all nations, assuring us that he will be with us to the very end. Therefore; He urges us to spread his gospel, and to do it without fear, especially in this time in age where the culture we live in has strayed so far away from the truth of His word.
As we know, this world today has tried to cover the mouth of the church, and drown out the voice of the saints. The enemy knows that his time is drawing near, so he will try to do everything in his power to destroy the church of God. But God shows us in His word; that no weapon formed against us shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17)!!
Bethsaida Apostolic Ministries, is one of the many weapons God has chosen from His vast arsenal of weapons, to wield His powerful word. As it says in Isaiah 49:2,
“He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver.”
There are literally thousands upon thousands of churches in the state of North Carolina, so the spiritual need is great, and as ministers we heed to the Father to ask for guidance, knowledge, wisdom and understanding for ministering His word to the masses. We believe in the ministry of apostleship, a Fivefold ministry (Apostle, Prophet, Teacher, Pastor, and Evangelist) that operates within the gifts of the Spirit.
Apostles are like fathers and mothers who impart to the Body of Christ and raise them up as sons and daughters in the faith. Prophets bring supernatural revelation and insight, giving vision of the times and seasons of God so that saints know what to do. Teachers teach the Word of God with simplicity and wisdom. Pastors nurture the Body of Christ with counseling, clothing them with Christ like armor and garments. Evangelists impart zeal for souls to be saved and equip the saints with wisdom and anointing in winning the lost.
It is time to restore, revive and refresh ourselves, and be renewed in the spirit of our minds, through the power and the fire of the Holy Spirit. Jesus is coming soon!!!
There is much work to be done.
