About Congdon Ministries International. . .
In September of 2006, Robert Congdon believed the time had come to expand his ministry to include countries outside of the United States and the United Kingdom, where he had been ministering for ten years. He returned to the United States and started his own independent ministry, Congdon Ministries International, Inc. in January of 2007 after leaving the American mission organization he had represented.
While in the United Kingdom, Dr. Congdon brought solid Bible teaching to many churches in response to urgent requests from pastors and church leaders. During the last 50 years, British churches have experienced increasingly militant attacks on dispensational/premillennial doctrine and the literal, historical, grammatical interpretation of the Bible. Dr. Congdon observed that churches were losing their sense of purpose and direction as they turned from a premillennial doctrinal view of prophecy to an amillennial/covenant position: Local churches began to die spiritually as evangelism and mission programs declined and disappeared; and the unique roles of the church and the nation of Israel were no longer being taught and understood. Dr. Congdon realized that these factors were contributing significantly to the increasing rise of antisemitism in Britain.
Recognizing this often repeated pattern of decline, Dr. Congdon is seeking to counter it by bringing biblically sound teaching on the relationship of Israel and the church to local congregations and church leaders. He assists believers and helps them to understand and defend the Bible's teaching on the Rapture, the coming Tribulation, the Second Coming of Christ, the 1000-year Millennial rule of Christ on earth, and God's plan for eternity. He does this through pulpit messages, Bible seminars, church conferences, Bible courses, and video/audio programs. Dr. Congdon desires to help individual Christians grow in the Lord as they gain a better knowledge of the Scriptures and God's plan for history. As they grow, the church also grows in its sense of direction, missions, and evangelism.
As CMI's ministry reaches into many corners of the world, there also has been an increasing awareness of the need to defend the faith in these latter days of apostasy. Many pastors and church leaders are caught unprepared when false teaching and trends enter their churches. They are unable to identify and recognize what is happening in their midst. Dr. Congdon assists pastors and leaders in identifying and countering false teaching such as New Calvinism, the Purpose-Driven/Emergent movement, and Reformed/Replacement theology.
Through its recent expansion into the world of digital television, CMI-TV now brings solid, in-depth Bible teaching to viewers in over 14 countries of the world. This station is available on the Internet and through Roku-TV, Apple-TV, iTunes, and DVD's. Along with Dr. Congdon, other biblically sound pastors and teachers offer in-depth messages and teaching on a variety of subjects and topics. The prime goal of CMI is to equip believers to serve the Lord and prepare them for their role as the Bride of Christ in the Millennium and eternity.
It is our desire to assist wherever the Lord can use us.
