Our Mission & Vision

The Mission of Words of Restoration International Ministries C.O.G.I.C. is that of Luke 4:18,19, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19) To preach the acceptable year of the Lord,”  that we may win souls into the kingdom for the glory of God.

Our Vision is to provide our partners with an opportunity to be involved in promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as well as, responding to the social needs of our partners and the community in which we have been privileged to serve.
