About The Ministry

The likeChrist Ministries was undertaken by Mathumbu Kervin in 2016, despite that it seems very little was accomplished. The ministry seeks to help add truer value to Christians’ earthly pilgrimage through the creation (or fostering the creation thereof) of the Christian friendly quality. The ministry is looking to achieve this by creating, empowering or encouraging the creation of Christian friendly services and goods. These shall be value adding  services and goods that believers have (in favor of holiness) had to use with great exercise of caution or utterly turned away from, due to the level compromise in their composition or procurement. Services and goods that can ideally be of truer value if produced or provided by evangelical Christians that are after God’s own heart.

The simple goal being to help foster resource while evading offense (that may lead to stumbling or vexation amongst other disagreeable ends) – and thereby promote holiness, which is ultimately for the advancement of the Kingdom of the Father through His Christ. Serving the young as well as the old in Christ – as well as empowering Churches and ministry.

And because I was already saying with brother Watchman Nee when the work was laid on my heart, that “I do not consecrate myself to be a missionary or a preacher. but that I consecrate myself to God to do His will where I am, be it in school, office, or kitchen, or wherever He may, in His wisdom, send me.” I then take it it is His will that the coal that caught fire back then burns hitherto.

Sub-Ministries

Children video resources

The ministry seeks to help make available, evangelical Christian friendly children video literature. Wholesome video literature that not only seek to help 'safely' keep our little ones preoccupied but also to biblically edify them whenever possible. When the ministry was first undertaken, this was the only area under consideration - however a few others have ever since come to consideration.

Children short stories

The ministry also longs to help make available evangelical Christian friendly children text as well as audio short stories. Story literature that should take care never to assert against Christian teachings in the name of amusement - and whenever possible labour to contribute towards evangelical as well as educational edification.

Wholesome children games

The ministry also wishes to help make available, children computer as well as mobile games that are evangelically wholesome. Educational or innocent-logic based games created by men after God's own heart (for absolute modesty). Again primarily to help keep our little ones 'safely' preoccupied above possible educational edification. This being in sequel to this
failed attempt.

Cloud-based instant messenger (WIP)

The ministry is as well laboring to develop and maintain a cloud-based instant messaging that should seek to offer an evangelical Christian friendly messaging experience through fostering of complementary features while excluding those that appears compromised in their nature or purpose. This project is partly work in progress.

Evangelical Christian liberality

The ministry as well seeks to present a global evangelical Christian alms giving or crowdfunding platform. The sub-ministry seeks to serve amongst others those saints who shall have tested and loathed the gall of destitution on many existing crowdfunding platforms touted as Christian-based.

Multi-category community Q&A

The ministry wishes to present a simple and yet functional Christian friendly community questions and answers platform. One that should strive to remain in honor of evangelical Christian ethics in each one of its every activities. With coverage of virtually all topics applicable to our day to day lives (or earthly pilgrimage) - such as faith, medical, legal, technology, education, business, etc.

The foregoing marks in substance the theology that the likeChrist Ministries both hold onto and expect to ever teach.

1. We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a people for Himself and to make all things new for His own glory.


2. We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. Therefore, it is to be believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises.


3. We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God’s saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed.


4. We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. Jesus-Israel’s promised Messiah-was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.


5. We believe that Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious resurrection constitute the only ground for salvation.


6. We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of its guilt. He regenerates sinners, and in Him they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. He also indwells, illuminates, guides, equips and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service.


7. We believe that the true church comprises all who have been justified by God’s grace through faith alone in Christ alone. They are united by the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head. The true church is manifest in local churches, whose membership should be composed only of believers. The Lord Jesus mandated two ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which visibly and tangibly express the Gospel. Though they are not the means of salvation, when celebrated by the church in genuine faith, these ordinances confirm and nourish the believer.


8. We believe that God’s justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. God commands us to love Him supremely and others sacrificially, and to live out our faith with care for one another, compassion toward the poor and justice for the oppressed. With God’s Word, the Spirit’s power, and fervent prayer in Christ’s name, we are to combat the spiritual forces of evil. In obedience to Christ’s commission, we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed.


9. We believe in the personal and bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ. The coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates the believer to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission.


10. We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to believe the Gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal conscious punishment and the believer to eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth, to the praise of His glorious grace. Amen.

Frequently Asked Questions

As of now, I am the sole content contributor. Both of which facts must explain content leanness as well as some imperfections as I had often created in rather haste.  But I certainly expect to harness the help of hired labour as often as it should be applicable. And while labour hire shall be confined to the Christian community so far as need should be, we should at sundry times hire pagan labour on areas that should not be sensitive in their nature.

We may accept Christian volunteers but all pagan labor shall be paid – lest they should think their service should be counted as saving righteousness before God. A typical example work considered not sensitive would be modeling of 3D resources as per our specifications. And typical work considered sensitive to be entrusted to a pagan would creative writing.

While this would be great and indeed the end of the ministry’s vission, we must admit that due to several limitations that may exist at a givien time, we should only ever cater for only a portion. But blessed be God whose heaven rejoices when one sinner repents. Yes for this reason shall we too rejoice for whichever gap we should be enabled to address at a given time.

I am considering to register the work as a non profit charity body but only in the near future – as I have judged in good faith that doing so now should not be fully conjusive to efficiency. For more on this, please kindly refer to the communication post here.

While we hope to, we are currently not linked to any established denomination. And have not made much effort towards establishing such association thus far. The major discouragement being that denominations renown for their evangelical exploits will undergo apostasy in one form or the other at times. Thus rendering denominational linkage as not always the best benchmark of the soundness of a ministry. I do however challenge saints, in the mean time, to: Have a look at our confession of faith, go through the About this ministry page of each sub-ministry (to judge our zeal), see the Journal entries here, go through our published content (to judge our doctrinal assertions) and even contact us where any other area of our identity in Christ may not be clear.

While I would gladly embrace the oppotunity, by grace I now know that it is never our place as Christians to decide where in the multi-office body of the Christ to serve. That God instead does the allocation as per His wisdom and will – either through devine revelation or providence. Yes I have attempted street evangelism as well as pastorate back in the years with no evident encouragement from him. This is one public work I am however conviced he would have me expended on. Above this I continue to be instant in intercessory praying in the power of His Holy Spirit (amongst other prayers)  – Yes I am often cought up in groans for extended hours (to my great consolation).

For the most part, we are indeed impliedly accusing existing providers of goods/services matching the likeChrist’s projects of interest of being partial or missing the evangelical mark entirely, but if any saint should at any time be convinced that any one of our ‘projects of focus’ is a duplicate of an already existing ‘worthy’ one, then please kindly reach out to us and we shall candidly consider and then accordingly call ours off once the duplication is ascertained – for we never seek to compete but ever fill evident gaps. We admit the internet is vast and that some worthy goods and services may just be suffering from poor to no advertising – which could explain why we could not locate them with moderate internet search efforts. With enough proof, we indeed can gladly call off the entire ministry at large 🙂

To this I shall again bring up brother George Muller, who has for this type of work left a great example. Again I am reminded of how God was at one point pleased to anoint 70 elders to assist Moses the forerunner during exodus (the departure). Yes I am even well resigned to step down from forerunning should I (of the Lord) be led to a more worthy candidate at any state of the work.

The term ‘evangelical’ should imply the receiption of the Gospel as presented in the Bible and by the Holy Spirit of God. And the following are a sample of renoun man whose’ work I generally consider evangelical. These may indeed have slight differences on many minor areas for reasons I cannot best point out but I found them to generally have held and presented the Gospel as shown in the scriptures and should therefore help emphasize my usage of the term: David Brainerd, George Muller, DL Moody, Jonathan Edwards , John Wesley, Charles G Finney, John Welch, George Whitefield, Duncan Campbell, Leonard Ravenhill, and Charles H Spurgeon.

Christian friendly should refer to the quality of being able to sympathize or be in favor of evangelical Christianity – and whenever possible sincerely promote its advancement.

If I must say, I am more arminianist but often dispar on the subject debate when considering how George Whitefield and John Wesley (who were contemporary and held onto either) could not convince each other and yet held each other’s work in great honor until separated by death. Yes this seems to suggest to me that the Lord was not pleased to intervene despite that he seemed to generally work mightily in each ones’ ministry of gospel evangelism. Leaving me wondering if they were perhaps meant to thus be each other’s thorns – to the humbling of their persons.

As of now, the  work depends largely on my (quite constricted) personal capacity. And this has sadly led to much progress suffering following our relocation in December 2018 as well as overall slow progress. I have attempted to avail funds through professed sources such as Christian grants as well as Christian crowdfundings without success. Either I did not meet the requirements (of location, church, ministerial focus, etc) or I would find them lacking when weighed against Holy Scriptures (the latter was often the case). We however are hoping raise the majority of operating costs through the liberality of saints whom the Lord shall, after we are commended to them, bring to consider giving.

I practice non-skilled Android OS maintenance on low-end Chinese off-brand smartphones – making about $500/m. Servicing mainly fellow non-skilled Android phone technicians. I have for a long time continued on this trade against my will (of preferrence). Yes I would rather be full time on likeChrist but the Lord has not granted this hitherto. For those interested on how I reckon the trade stacks up against Christian ethics, please kindly refer to the argument here.

Other Aspired Projects

One that should labour to present an offense-free mobile app sourcing experience. Either through recreating or hosting some existing ones in a Christian friendly manner. Keeping out front-end lewd, vain as well as arogant language and media (like images and videos).

The quest here being to curate kids songs that are evangelical in their compositions (especially the lyrics). These we shall further seek to video animate so little ones could watch as they sing along. If need should be, effort to write and compose our own shall be made. Else we could just record and animate existing evangelical written ones (granted we avail permissions from the authors).

A web browser that should offer flexibility and features that should help promote a Christian friendly internet surfing. And if it should prove wise, we shall instead focus only on add-ons that can then be deployed on the free and open-source Firefox by Mozilla. Extensions that should help promote a Christian wholesome internet browsing.

NB. I certainly aim to do my thorough research prio to implememnting any of the above aspired projects as the aim is never to compete (in case a ‘worthy’ servicer allready exist) but to try and fill evident gaps and omissions for Christ sake.
