Who We Are
WORLDWIDE. Its vision and action is the whole world, “unto the uttermost parts of the earth.” In its basis, the Worldwide Missionary Movement acknowledges and adopts for all its activities the Biblical principles of brotherly love, spiritual unity, companionship, mutual respect, cooperation, communion, fellowship, and equality with all the people of God.
MISSIONARY. Its objective is the promotion and expansion of the missionary work, the evangelization, and the saving of the souls.
MOVEMENT. Movement is an effect. The great cause of this movement is the action of the Holy Spirit with His fruit and gifts working through men and women. Those men and women have a clear and wide vision of the need lost souls have; they also have a well-known spirit of faith and sacrifice, and a clean testimony. They, by going after the Great Missionary, our Lord Jesus Christ, give a second place to all material, personal, religious, and denominational interests to give first place to the supreme interest of accomplishing the great commission and the evangelization of the world.
Its main headquarters are located in Puerto Rico. Its International Board is made up by: president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, and trustees. Furthermore, there are missionary supervisors, national supervisors, and representatives of the Work who are appointed by the International Board. As an organization, the International Board is the main body that manages and rules the principles, objectives, and goals of this Organization. The local churches and missionary works which have been raised, supported, and organized by the Worldwide Missionary Movement, are directly under its responsibility.
Its founders, Rev. Luis M. Ortiz, together with the pastors God was adding to the Work, understood the vision God gave them. The vision: the world for Christ. This Work was birthed to enter different Latin American countries, hold evangelistic crusades, found churches, hold intensive Bible courses to train national pastors, and establish new works.
The prophetic vision continues being fulfilled throughout its 50 years since the foundation of the Worldwide Missionary Movement, labouring in all the continents, in more than 60 countries, with more than 6,000 congregations, and a ministerial body of more than 8,000 pastors.

Worldwide Missionary Movement .... The command that forces is the Great Commission. The voice that calls us is the clamor of the lost souls. The truth that impels us is that the harvest is plenteous. The vision that enlightens us is the mission fields. The need that worries us is that laborers are a few. The passion that moves us is the condition of the souls. The reason that inspires us is the glory of God. The strength that drives us is the Holy Spirit. The goal that draws us is the evangelization of the world. The cause that attracts us is the missionary work. The urgency that moves us is the short time. The reality that encourages us is the abundant fruit.
"They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”Psalm 126:5-6.
