About Us:

We are a culturally diverse international fellowship of non-denominational Christian Churches, Ministries and Missions, present and active on almost every continent on Earth. It is our singular desire to empower every believer in Christ Jesus to minister the Good News of His amazing grace… right where they are.

The United New Testament Church, International is actively affirming and upholding the Biblical standard of a Mighty Priesthood of all Believers. The Lord Jesus Christ reigns here.

UNTCI has grown and developed since its birth in 1999 into a rich, active, international fellowship of mostly non-denominational Christian Churches, Ministries and Missions, present and active both here in America and most everywhere abroad.

Our Ministry Association is open to all Believers who feel called to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ordination of every believer is a free benefit to each and every active member in Full Fellowship with The United New Testament Church, International Ministry Association, Inc. We unreservedly honor, uphold, and support the Biblical to a priesthood of all believers. As an ordained minister, there are certain expectations in this deeper relationship intended to develop a well-rounded, fruitful Ministry Association in relationship with Christ, and one another, for service in the Kingdom wherever the call.

Our members enjoy a rich, active, culturally diverse international fellowship like never before available in the history of the church. We see – in real time – what God is doing throughout the earth through His people. It is an exciting and refreshing experience to feel and BE an active part of the global Body of Christ!

The United New Testament Church, International is actively affirming and upholding the Biblical standard of a Mighty Priesthood of all Believers. The sacrificial death of Jesus Christ annulled the Aaronic priesthood, as we read in the Epistle to the Hebrews. As the perfect Son of God and High Priest, Jesus established a new covenant (Heb. 9:15-22) with better promises (Heb. 8:6) when he offered himself (Heb. 7:27) as the perfect victim once for all (Heb. 7:27) as our substitute (Heb. 7:27) and ransom (Heb. 9:15). By his death he took away our sins (Heb. 9:28), made us perfect (Heb. 10:14), obtained for us eternal redemption (Heb. 9:12), opened a new and living way in and through him to God’s throne of grace, and sat down at the right hand of God (Heb. 10:12). He now invites every believer (Heb. 9:14) to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus (Heb. 10:19) to offer continually spiritual sacrifices (Heb. 13:15, 16) as priests in Christ.

  1. Praise and Blessings to all of the Fathers and those appointed as such.
    You do a mighty thing in the order of the Kingdom Dear Brothers. To be Father is an awesome responsibility, full of terror, joy, blessing, and heart ache. It is something that most wouldn’t trade one moment of for anything, period. As much as the “Father” role is maligned in the world today, take no offense, and remain steadfast, for the only reason you are under attack is because your role is so important. It is so important in fact to the family and to the proper raising of the children, that God Himself stands ready to “stand in” in your place.

    Happy Father’s Day…and keep on being just who God has called you to be!

  2. Wednesday marked the beginning of Lent, known as “Ash Wednesday” by tradition, it is intended that we recognize our own fallen condition and remember that we are but mortal with a limit to our time here. This then is to remind us to turn to Christ who is the only way, before it be too late.
    The whole Lenten season tradition is to help facilitate this “turning” by way of scriptural reminders of the way and the calling, then give encouragement along the way as we seek to follow our Lord as He “sets His face like flint” toward Jerusalem for our sake.
    Take time in your own studies, prayers, preparations, preaching, and teachings, to focus on not only His path to the Cross for our Salvation, but our own personal response to all He has done for each of us.
    Let us make this time before the Easter Celebration, one of personal journeys that draw us nearer and more in line with Christ who is calling.

    May God Bless each of you in your ministries, may they bear the Fruit of God’s Glory in this Season.

    -Rev. Dr. C. Joseph Fifer, Prelate

  3. Brothers and Sisters in Christ of the Untied New Testament Church, International Ministry Association and it’s Fellowships everywhere, greetings and peace to you in the name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
    It is the beginning of Advent once again and time again to focus on the “Make straight the way of the Lord.” Twice a year we visit this understanding through celebration, worship, scripture, messages, and tradition. The first is ADVENT, which is the preparation to receive the Baby Jesus as the greatest gift from God the Father, that He can do the will of the Father on our behalf from the miracle of life through birth (Christmas). The second is LENT, which is the preparation to receive the Savior, Christ Jesus, that He can fulfill the will of the Father on our behalf from the miracle of life through death (Easter).
    In this season of busy tradition, planning, joy, and celebration, during, and even after, let us not forget that these two moments we prepare for each year are only to focus us even more on the Third and Final Season in which we are in perpetually now, each and every day, which is the coming of His Kingdom as the final act of God through Christ the King.
    For Christmas this year, let us look to the Baby but focus on the Christ in all His Glory!

  4. As we are becoming more recognized around the world Brothers and Sisters we are joining together with more and more ministries also engaged in changing the world for Christ through Education, Service, and Worshipful Work, right there where God has called them. Many are in emerging areas that require much love and grace. Let’s remember all of our ministries everywhere, and support them with continued prayer at all times with joy and thanksgiving, especially though in these months drawing closer to the celebration of the birth of Our Lord, let us support those among us who are most in need. Those who are rebuilding and those who are out on the edge taking the Light into the darkness of this world.

  5. On behalf of the entire Fellowship of UNTCI and the Alumni of TECU, I want to say Congratulations! To Kenyan Seminary Class 1726 set to commence on the public school grounds of Bondo on August 5th with all of their friends and family in attendance. These twelve students have braved many hardships, not just in the attending of the classes, but finding the time to study, learn, and grow, complete the assignments, and continue with their lives as the Pastors of many of the churches in the area. The graduates will receive their Bachelor Degree in Theology & Ethics, eight of them with “honors”. We are pleased and proud of them for their accomplishments.
    This was the first of this type of “class” for Trinity Evangelical Christian University where a class was formed to study and progress together with instructors teaching the individual lessons. The seminary is built on self study programs that are designed for the needs of the fellowship, but as the fellowship grows, so do the needs. We remain flexible and committed to the needs of UNTCI whatever they may be and have proven once again, that just as Philippians 4:13 promises, “[we] can do all things through Christ who strengthens [us]”.
    We have more of these type of Seminary classes planned for the future with a return to Bondo, Kenya for a Master of Divinity class being among those plans.
    Additionally, these graduates on August 5th will be newly ordained with a laying on of hands and anointing ceremony after they commence with their degrees. So along with the Congratulations, a “Welcome to the Fellowship” is in order too!

    Congratulations and welcome to all of you! May the Lord Bless you and Keep you!

    1. Congratulations to you Dr. Joseph Fifer on your new Appointment. May God Bless you with the His wisdom, leadership, understanding, and His direction in this new appointment as well as UNTCI. We pray for you as you embark on your new assignment.
      God Bless,
      Rev. Alberta M Mosley, D.Min.

  6. Openings Available for Corrections Chaplains in Michigan
    Good afternoon. I remember reading a post recently from a United New Testament Church International minister who was looking for a chaplaincy position, so I thought I would pass on information about openings for lead corrections chaplains with Forgotten Man Ministries (FMM). The organization serves Michigan county jails and presently has one full-time opening for the Kent County jail, and three part-time openings for the Mecosta County, Bay County, and Clare County jails. Interested candidates are asked to write a brief email inquiry to Rev. Nathan DeWard, Director of Mission Advancement, at ndeward@forgottenman.org with a one page resumé attached to the message. More details about the chaplaincy opportunities, including access to a PDF with the job description for each opening, can be found at this link http://www.forgottenman.org/jobs These are paid positions, but FMM also has an extensive network of lay chaplains and volunteers who work under the direction of the lead chaplains.

  7. The Holy Spirit is moving us forward, not backward. Now we are getting closer to the second coming and we can see the signs and around us and know we are to do His work on earth, it is of up most importance. We must not back down, in the face of any adversary. No apologies, just standing strong. with our Lord’s strength, we can do it!

    1. “Fear not, nor be dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” (2 Chron. 20:15b)

      In this wicked age it is important to know that we do not have to stand in our own strength, because we would be overrun. We are not to fear the multitude of: bills, trials, tests, troubles, temptations, offenses, hurts, pains, or other such maladies. As long as we depend on God, and continue to stand, He will deliver.

      Be Blessed

  8. Lovely Maundy Thursday time of Communion , and bible study, as we gathered together as one. Humbling ourselves before our Lord and each other, as our Lord has asked. We are praying for all of you ,from our “mother church’ UNTCI , and our whole ministry of pastors around the world. Sending out blessings for the ministry of Christ around the world, for peace and love! God bless
    Rev Dr. Carol

  9. Thank you for a wonderful evening of communion and fellowship. I feel doubly enriched: by the fuller understanding of Christ as my friend, and also by your obvious sincerity and desire to enrich the hearts and minds of your viewers. I liked your focus on the feeling and experience part of relationship with Christ as well as the discussion of Scripture and word meanings. The prayers, heartfelt appeal and blessings, and songs warmed my soul. Lynette, it is so nice to be able to put a face to the name of the kind and patient women who has been guiding me through the various stages and challenges of membership, course registration, and web navigation. Thank you all for your work to create meaningful connections for our spiritual growth. Since it is St. Patrick’s Day, I am offering this Irish blessing in your name. “May your troubles be less, and your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door.” God be with you.

  10. Thank you for an “illuminating” time of “Communion and Bible Fellowship” that was spiritually, intellectually, and practically uplifting. I have just connected with UNTCI resources this week, and I know that God has led me to the right place at the right time after viewing tonight’s Live Stream event. I was thinking just today that I had been hiding my light under a bushel, so I found the discussion very timely. As well, I am also searching for clear direction, and the idea that I only need to see the Lord’s will for the immediate guidance and not solve the challenges all at once for all time was deeply comforting. The imagery and metaphors were beautiful and moving, and very effectively delivered the message of how loved we are by our creator. God bless you!
