Worldwide Missionary Movement

The founder of the Worldwide Missionary Movement, Rev. Luis M. Ortiz, was born in Corozal, Puerto Rico, on September 26th, 1918. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and personal Saviour when he was 10 years old, and that very same night he was aware of God's calling for him. When he finished his studies, he started to work in a newspaper called “El Mundo (The World).” Later, he quit that job to obey the calling of the Lord and study His Word. During that time, God dealed with him concerning the missionary work in Cuba. He resisted that calling until in a home service, while he was praying, God Himself called him, and finally he surrendered his life to the Lord to obey Him. In 1943, he married Sis. Rebecca Hernández Colón, with whom he had two daughters: Damaris and Priscila. In that same year, they went together to the missionary field, first to Dominican Republic, and then to Cuba where they worked untiringly for 16 years, planting around 60 churches and a precious group of servants of God. Being still in the island of Cuba, God revealed in a convention the great missionary labour of worldwide evangelization He himself was giving to Rev. Luis M. Ortiz. Then he came back to Puerto Rico in 1960 by commandment of God, and in 1963 he officialy started the Work of the WORLDWIDE MISSIONARY MOVEMENT, INC. Rev. Luis M. Ortiz was the founder and president of the Work from 1963 to 1995. On September 25th, 1996 he was promoted to the presence of God, a day before his 78th birthday.

MOVEMENT is an effect. The great cause of this movement is the action of the Holy Spirit with His fruit and gifts working through men and women. Those men and women have a clear and wide vision of the need lost souls have, they also have a well-known spirit of faith and sacrifice, and a clean testimony. They, by going after the Great Missionary, our Lord Jesus Christ, give a second place to all material, personal, religious, and denominational interests to give first place to the supreme interest of accomplishing the great comission and the evangelization of the world.

MISSIONARY. Its objective is the promotion and expansion of the missionary work, the evangelization, and the saving of the souls.

WORLDWIDE. Its vision and action is the whole world, “unto the uttermost parts of the earth.” In its basis, the Worldwide Missionary Movement acknowledges and adopts for all its activites the Biblical principles of brotherly love, spiritual unity, companionship, mutual respect, cooperation, communion, fellowship, and equality with all the people of God. Its main headquarters are located in Puerto Rico. Its International Board is made up by: president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, and directors. Furthermore, there are missionary supervisors, national supervisors, and representatives of the Work who are appointed by the International Board. As an organization, the International Board is the main body that manages and rules the principles, objectives, and goals of this Organization. The local churches and missionary works which have been raised, supported, and organized by the Worldwide Missionary Movement, are directly under its responsability. Its founders, Rev. Luis M. Ortiz, together with the pastors God was adding to the Work, understood the vision God gave them. The vision: the world for Christ. This Work was birthed to: enter different Latin American countries, hold evangelistic crusades, found churches, hold intensive Biblical courses to train national pastors, and establish new works. The prophetic vision continues being fulfilled throughout its 49 years since the foundation of the Worldwide Missionary Movement, labouring in all the continents, in more than 60 countries, with more than 6,000 congregations, and a ministerial body of more than 8,000 pastors.
