Who We Are
Who We Are
The ministry of World Missionary Evangelism, Inc. began with a challenge to put Christian faith in action in order to care for a handful of orphan children in India.
Already a successful businessman and Christian leader, Dr. John Douglas, Sr. felt he still needed to do more to reach lost souls for Christ. Responding to that call, he sold all he had and entered full-time ministry. After accepting an invitation to minister in India, Dr. Douglas met a Hindu man at a Gospel meeting who asked Dr. Douglas if he really believed what he preached. When John Douglas said yes, the Hindu man left 7 orphaned children with the visiting American minister. Dr. Douglas accepted the challenge as a part of his calling from God and built a children’s home for orphans.
God honored Dr. Douglas’ commitment to serve by transforming a ministry starting with 7 orphans into an outreach to suffering children and people in many countries. John Douglas gave the remainder of his life to meeting the spiritual and physical needs of impoverished, hurting people. His vision included a mighty army of native missionaries working in their own lands to fulfill the Great Commission. And that is how World Missionary Evangelism came into being nearly 60 years ago.
After nearly 60 years of continuous ministry, WME continues its mission to fulfill the Great Commission and live our faith by demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ to those suffering from great need in body and soul.
As Christian believers, we are called to be living testimonies of the saving and healing power of Jesus Christ to all nations and peoples. It is our deepest desire to serve our Lord and be counted among the faithful servants who have cared for “the least of these” in His name.
“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, ‘Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.’
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? Or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? Or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?’
And the King shall answer and say unto them, ‘Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.’”
