Witness Ministries is a non-denominational Word of faith – Christian Ministry.
One of the greatest honours and joys of Witness Ministries is the opportunity to Share God’s mighty Word with others.
There has never been a time in history when more people are open to and need to hear the life changing Word. It is also amazing to see the diverse and unique tools available to deliver the Good News to people from all walks of life. But too often, believers have been unwilling to seize the moment and use these tools for expanding the kingdom of God. The result has been limited impact and large groups of people un-reached. If we want to influence our generation, we must need the Apostle Paul’s example and become all things to all people that we might win some (I Corinthians 9:22)
As you read you will learn how Witness Ministries is touching people from all walks of life as we accomplish the vision God has set before us.
Witness Ministries has established dynamic ministries to guide, encourage and witness the life changing Word to different sections of people.
1] TEACHING AND PREACHING : Delivering the truth of God’s Life Changing Word through Fellowship meetings, Conventions & Retreats
With other teachers of the Word, in various fellowship meetings Witness Ministries convenes in every 3 months with quarterly fellowship meetings – challenging and motivating people to use practical wisdom from the Word in their daily lives Witness Ministries conducts Retreats periodically which deals with the Bible Basics & also in spiritual growth & development. In these Retreats, counseling is provided to individuals seeking spiritual guidance.
‘I finally get it !’
The Word became alive in me and changed my life at – Naigoan Retreat – my first retreat, but not my last. It had been such a pleasure to sit under the anointing of your teaching. As you told us the benefits of speaking in tongues, it sparked a fire in me. The teaching about loving the Lord and loving your neighbour, has changed my life – specially, that of honoring your parents. I finally get it. It is so Simple but so profound.
The Naigoan Retreat has helped me go from head knowledge of the Word to heart knowledge with revelation and relationship. Thank God for his Word & for your ministry.

‘Power of Gospel !’
In the middle of October , my wife and I had big fight about some matter. We decided to get a divorce. But on that day we met Br. Melwyn who ministered to us through the Gospel and prayed over us. He also requested us to attend a three-day Retreat I had never been for a Retreat before in my life. In this Retreat we encountered Jesus when the Gospel was preached to us. During the retreat on the second day my wife and I were both touched by Jesus and decided that we will not be separated and that we will occupy our selves in prayer. Also during the Retreat I was completely changed and gave up drinks. My wife also who was suffering from umbilical hernia for five years (since our son’s delivery) was touched by the Holy Spirit and she was healed. Thank you Jesus. The Good News is Jesus Still Lives.

2] FAITH BUILDING TOOLS : Building people with diverse resources.
Through the years Witness Ministries has gathered an extensive collection of Cassettes, CD’s Videos, and Books & Teaching CD’s of various gospel ministers & ministries, to equip the saints to live victoriously & walk the winner’s way.
These faith building tools provide scriptural training in almost every area of daily living – marriage & family, leadership development, prosperity and finance, prayers, character development, faith, the Holy Spirit and the anointing, practical Christian living, end time teaching & much more.
Whether by reading a book as a complement to Bible study or listening to a CD or the way to work, these resources encourage spiritual development as a wonderful supplement to church attendance.
‘Authority Over Sickness’
I would like to testify how the book “Believer’s Authority” helped me to claim my authority and see the glory of God. This book was handed over to me by Br. Melwyn. I do not like to read books so I asked my husband to read it. When he started reading the book my elder son Melroy fell ill and was having high temperature. Since he had read the book and he knew how to claim the authority and break down the power of sickness in Jesus’ Name. He did and the fever at once left him and he was alright. He insisted me to read the book. I started reading the book and I found it very interesting. So, I kept on reading till the end. During that time my younger so had high temperature. In my office itself over the phone I claimed authority and commanded the fever to leave my son immediately in the Name of Jesus. My baby sitter was getting panicky, but I was not afraid and with faith I knew it when I would reach home my son will be alright. When I reached home, he was having slight fever only and I told him to say by his mouth “With the stripes and wounds of Jesus I am healed” and he was completely healed that night. All glory and honour to our Lord Jesus for His Name and Blood. I think Jesus for Br. Melwyn who build us up through the books to know our Authority in Jesus as believers.

‘All Good Things Come From Jesus!’
I come from a Hindu family. I had no job and a financial Crunch. I had applied for a job abroad. But the agent asked for Rs.35000/-. I hardly had any financial resources. I attended “Witness Ministries” worship service for the first time with my friend Sunil. There they prayed over me and I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. I also received the gift of tongues. By God’s abundant grace, the amount of Rs. 35000/- was arranged miraculously. On next Friday when I attended another worship service I gave my testimony there and asked to be prayed over for going abroad quickly. Within 4 days from then I was in Dubai I thank you for your prayers and also for being a channel of blessing to me. Wishes for a manifold growth in your ministries. Praise Jesus.

7] WARRIORS 4 CHRIST: Ministering by interceding on behalf of others before God.
Prayer warriors are people who are known for regularly interceding on behalf of others before God. To intercede means to come between, so prayer warriors are, in effect, coming between God and the trouble in another person’s life.
Prayer warriors are like defense attorneys, appealing to the Higher Court on behalf of their defendants. We’re all guilty before God, but God is merciful. Prayer warriors recognize that quality of God’s personality and call on Him for intervention.
Let’s study several prayer warriors in the Bible and see what we can learn from them:
- Jehoshaphat was King of Judah when he received word that his land was being invaded. In 2 Chronicles 20:1-24, we read how the king prayed fervently to the Lord: “O LORD, God of our fathers, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you. O our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend?” (verses 6-8). Jehoshaphat acknowledged God’s power and His help in previous circumstance, he was aware of his inability and lack of knowledge, and he proclaimed his trust in God!
God answered his cry for help in a miraculous way! 2 Chronicles 20:15 reports God’s message: “…Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.” Early in the morning, Jehoshaphat gathered his army and urged them to have faith in God. When they arrived at the battlefield, they found that the Lord had already won the victory (2 Chronicles 20:20-30)!
- Shadrach, Mesach, and Abednego were three men who refused to bow before anyone or anything but God! When they refused King Nebuchadnezzer’s order to bow down, they told the king, “If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up” (Daniel 3:17-18). Because of their disobedience, the king threw them into a blazing furnace.
The king immediately saw that they were not harmed. Daniel 3:26-27 says, “So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire, and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them.”
- Paul was perhaps the greatest example of a prayer warrior in the New Testament. He repeatedly prayed for others, especially the individual churches with whom he was working. In Ephesians 3:14-21, while Paul was in prison, he prays for the believers in the church at Ephesus: “For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
Are your prayers filled with requests for others? You have been given this ministry of intercession and through prayer you can be used by God to touch lives of people – those you have never met and those who are very close to you. Are you a prayer warrior?
