"We are Celebrating 42 years of Christian Ministry"


Thank You For Visiting, You Are Always Welcome ...

Welcome to the Christian Alliance Ministries/ Worldwide Church of Jesus Christ website. We are a Worldwide, Conservative Evangelical, Religious Order composed of thousands of affiliate Churches , NTS Seminaries and NCU Universities worldwide. Our New Testament style church is The Worldwide Church of Jesus Christ and our goal is to do our part in fulfilling the " Great Commission" of our Lord Jesus, by worldwide Discipleship through Christian Education.


"We must preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  Therefore, we should be open to and allow affiliation with any Bible-centered Church, whose members love Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and have a focus on the fulfillment of our Lord's Great Commission".

Presiding Bishop; Howard M. Sarkela, August 2004

NCU University Awards Philippine President:

Our Bishop, Dr. Howard M. Sarkela recognized Her Excellency, Gloria Arroyo, President of the Philippines for her legislation regarding Faith and Morals.

Our Presiding Bishop: Howard Sarkela along with our Filipino Senior Bishop's Seth Lagunda, and Teodoro Garvida, presented an award letter and Honorary Doctorate of Christian Humanities from NCU to Philippine President; Gloria Arroyo at Malacanyan Palace in Manila, Philippines. The meeting was covered by press and television.


God's purpose in the founding of the Worldwide Church of Jesus Christ:

Even as Martin Luther departed the Catholic Church and formed the original Lutheran Church based on his belief in Justification by Faith alone (Romans 1:17 and Habbakuk 2:4), Bishop Sarkela who is a Finnish American and baptized in the Finnish Lutheran Church "Suomi Synod" of Michigan, departed the Lutheran Church and later formed the Worldwide Church of Jesus Christ (WCJC) because of a life-changing awakening in which the Holy Spirit illumined to Bishop Sarkela the simple yet profound literal translation of (Ephesians 2: 8-10) which clarifies that Salvation is by Grace through Faith alone, and not by faith plus works, such as baptism, etc., as practiced by some other denominations. This illumination of Biblical Truth by the Holy Spirit, and a further revelation that some Lutheran synods were defiling the Body of Christ, through allowing secular humanistic doctrine to defile the Biblical sanctity of the Church, led Bishop Sarkela to form the "Worldwide Church of Jesus Christ" denomination or preferably; religious order. This historical event in forming the "Worldwide Church of Jesus Christ" as a mainstream protestant, evangelical (non-liturgical) religious order, allowed the perpetuation of the integrity of the original declaration of the Finnish Lutheran's "Suomi Synod" as well as a perpetual continuation of historical "Apostolic succession" as undefiled.

So, By the Grace of our Lord, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and with our Lord's purpose to protect the integrity of His Church and the perpetual integrity of His Apostolic succession from the beginning of His early Church throughout the ages, a new (non-Lutheran) religious order known as the "Worldwide Church of Jesus Christ" was born. Today the WCJC has well over a thousand affiliated Churches and NCU university branches in approximately 40 countries worldwide. The WCJC claims "Sola Scriptura" the Holy Bible alone as the only doctrinal source and not the humanist doctrines of men while continuing to recognize the original declaration of the original Finnish Lutheran's "Suomi Synod" of Michigan, which states; "the Suomi Synod maintains as the highest principle of confession that the Holy Word of God is the only rule and standard by which all doctrines of the Church are to be tried and judged".

In obedience to the direction given by our Lord's Holy Spirit to Bishop; Howard M. Sarkela, The WCJC seeks to continue the simple pattern of our Lord's early Church, as established by Jesus and His Apostles, prior to the influence of non-Biblical tradition and the humanist doctrines of men, while recognizing as our obligation specifically; obedience to the "Great Commission" (Matthew 28:18-20). The WCJC recognizes the Bible as the inspired and infallible Word of God and as the Lord's complete revelation. The lineage as recorded in our WCJC document of historic Apostolic succession is intended as a perpetual undefiled record.

"Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit sayeth the Lord of Hosts"   Zechariah 4:6

"Vintage ChapelService.htm When Our Presiding Bishop Was a Young Minister of the Gospel"




Be filled with His presence as you read and receive His Divine Word,

prepared beforehand for a time such as this...

"So Then Faith Comes By Hearing and Hearing By The Word of God"   (Romans 10:17)

Let's Begin By Entering Into His Holy Presence....

Lord Jesus we ask your blessing upon the reading of Your Holy Word, mold us Lord, into those servants whom you desire us to be. Empower us by your Word Lord, to share the Gospel, feed your sheep and make disciples of every nation. We make this humble request in the authority of Your Holy name Lord Jesus. Hear our prayer, Lord Jesus... AMEN.

Just read His Word and receive His message into your heart now by Faith:

"All scripture is given by the inspiration of God and profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction  in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly equipped, unto every good work."  (II Timothy 3:16-17)

"In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God and the WORD was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him and without Him was nothing made, that was made. In Him was life; and the Life was the Light of men." (John 1:1-4)

"There is no other name under heaven, given among men, whereby ye must be saved."          (Acts 4:12)

"Therefore also God highly exalted Him, AND BESTOWED ON HIM THE NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow of those who are in heaven and on the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:9-11)

"For in Him dwells ALL OF THE FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority." (Colossians 2:9-10)

"And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the Church, WHICH IS HIS BODY, the fullness of Him who fills all in all." (Ephesians 1:22-23)

Blessed be the WORD of the Lord... 

For we ask this in the authority of the Name of Jesus our Lord, Amen
