God has graciously given us the privilege to pioneer many branches of ministry and to be trailblazers for many Christians and churches after the long period of stagnation due to repressions and persecutions of Christians under the communistic regime. Here are just a few fruits of our ministry.
First Lithuanian Bible edition arrived from St Michel Print, Finland in 1996 autumn
Another field of successful ministry is a weekly half an hour TV program "The Cornerstone". Pastor Giedrius Saulytis has founded it in 1996. It is broadcasted on many stations and covers nearly two thirds of Lithuania's geographical map. The program consists of two parts, one of which is dedicated to the preaching of the gospel, and the second to the discussion of current issues from Christian perspective. The program is ecumenical in its character and often hosts pastors and ministers from diverse denominations. The Cornerstone has been faithfully laying the foundations for and defending Christian values in our post-soviet society. More...
Finally, the charitable ministry of The Word of Faith Christian Fellowship has to be briefly mentioned. Although the laws do not allow non-Catholic chaplains to minister in the army and prisons, since 1991 the pastors and ministers of WFCF have been regularly visiting many prisons as well as shelters for former convicts. For many years we provided food and clothing to the people living in rubbish dumps. Nursing homes and some hospitals have been on the list of those whom we provide charitable help. At least three rehabilitation centers for drug addicts have been founded by members of churches. WFCF is coordinating the "Operation Christmas Child" (OCC) initiated by the Samaritan's Purse in the US. It is the largest humanitarian project ecumenically administered in our nation. Since 1998 more than 100 churches, representing 10 different denominations, participated in the OCC, and more than 200,000 shoe boxes with children gifts have been distributed. Orphanages, forgotten country schools and day care centers, to name just a few, have been blessed with gifts expressing Christian love.
