The Missions Ministry of Freedom Christian Bible Fellowship is comprised of two teams:

1. The International Ministry Team

The vision of the International Ministry Team is to overcome any issues between the nearby church and worldwide missions. This is refined by instructing our gathering and urging our individuals to contribute monetarily; by building associations with our global evangelists and ministers; and via preparing all who are called under Freedom Worldwide Covenant Ministries to take an interest in the work of missions.

2. The Community Ministry Team

The vision of the Community Ministry Team is to conquer any hindrance between the nearby church and the areas of our city. This is expert by setting up the hearts of the general population in every group to get the nearby church and by advancing the neighborhood church's affectability and responsibility regarding the group through supplication, the working of connections, and the arrangement of assets.
