The MINISTRY of the Watchman Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement is the five-fold evangelistic, restorative and renewal assignment which the Lord has given us to accomplish. This is often termed, "the vision of the Watchman". The Lord Jesus often spoke of His ministry on earth in those days (cons. Lk. 2:49; 24:25-27; Matt. 20:17-22; Jn. 9:4-5; 12:46). The apostles on their part also often related or mentioned their ministry while they were engaged in same (Act. 1:15-17, 21-22, 24-25; 4:18-20; 6:1-4; 20:24; 26:12-20; 2Cor. 4:1; Eph. 3:8-9).
An Instrument Of Restoration To The Roman Catholics & Other Jerusalems
RESTORATION here implies bringing back those things lost in the course of time due to (inter alia), the influence of the world and unwariness as to the schemes of satan. To mention but a few, the following have been lost by the people in the course of the past centuries:- new-life experience of genuine Christians (i.e. regeneration) (2Cor. 5:17; Jn. 1:13; Tit. 3:5), the apostolic mission of church leaders (Acts 6L2-4; 4:19-20; 20:17-27; 1Cor. 2:1-5; Col. 1:28-29; 2Tim. 4:1-2); the exemplary life of Christian leaders (1Thess. 2:10; 2Cor. 4:1-2; 6:4-10; 1Tim. 3:2-7); the practically holy nature of the church (1Pet. 1:14-16; Lev. 11:44); the vibrant/evangelistic nature of the church due to the presence of the in-dwelling Holy Spirit (Act. 2:41-47; 4:32; 8:1, 4); the Christ only nature of the church (Act. 1:8; 1Cor. 1:23; 2:1-2; Gal. 1:3-9); the praying nature of the church (Act. 1:14; 4:24; 12:12; 21:5); the unworldly nature of the church (Jn. 17:14-16; Rom. 12:2; 2Tim. 2:4; Heb. 11:24-25; 1Jn. 2:15). It is these things and much more that the Movement was ordained and established by the Lord to restore. The vision that has been given is one like that of prophet Isaiah and apostle Paul (see Isa. 62:1-4, 6-7; Acts 26:16-18).

What We Believe
Repentance is a complete turning away from all sins and their deceitful pleasures and is required from every sinner before he can truly and effectively believe in Jesus with saving faith. (Pro. 28:13; Isa. 55:7; Ezek. 18:21-23; Mk. 1:15; Lk. 24:46,47; Acts 2:38; 3:19; 20:21; 2Cor. 7:10; Heb. 6:1-3). Restitution is making amends for wrongs done against our fellowmen, restoring stolen things to their rightful owners, paying debts, giving back where one has defrauded, making confessions to the offended and apologising to those slandered. It is necessary, so as to have a conscience void of offence toward God and man. (Gen. 20:1-8, 14-18; Ex. 22:1-7; Lev. 6:1-7; Num. 6:6-8; 2Sam. 12:1-6; Pro. 6:31; Ezek.33: 14-16; Matt. 5:23-24, Lk. 19:8,9; Acts 23:1-5; 24:16; Jam. 4:17- 5:6). Justification is the act of God's grace by which one receives forgiveness and remission of sins and is counted righteous, standing before God as though one had never sinned. It is received through faith in the atoning blood of Jesus. At the time of justification, the justified is also REGENERATED. By regeneration is meant the act of God's grace, whereby a spiritual change is wrought in the heart of man, making him a new creature and enabling him to live righteously, soberly and godly in this present evil world. (Ps. 32:1,2; Isa. 1:18; Mic. 7:19; 2Cor. 5:17-21; Gal. 2:16; Eph. 2:8,9; Tit. 3:5; 1Pet. 1:23; Tit. 2:11-12; Eph. 2:1,5). Water Baptism is essential to our obedience after reconciliation with God. Water Baptism is one immersion (not three) "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" as Jesus commanded. (Matt. 3:13-17; Mk. 16:15,16; Acts 2:38; 8:38,39; Rom. 6:4,6). The Lord's Supper was instituted by Jesus Christ so that all believers (all members of the family of God) might partake thereof regularly to "shew the Lord's death till He come". The emblems used are "unleavened bread" and the juice of "fruit of the vine". Anyone who eats and drinks unworthily brings "damnation", punishment and chastisement upon himself. (Matt. 26:26; Lk. 22:17-20; 1Cor. 11:23-30). Sanctification is a definite act of God's grace subsequent to the new birth (regeneration), by which the believer's heart is purified and made holy. It is an instantaneous experience (distinct from gradual maturity of some believers) and is obtained through faith in the sanctifying blood of Jesus Christ. Purity of heart and holiness of life are central to Christian living. (Lk. 1:74,75; Jn. 17:15-17; 1Thess. 4:3,7,8; 5:22-24; Eph. 5:25-27; Heb. 2:11; 10:10-14; 13:11,12; Tit. 2:11-14; 1Jn. 1:7; Heb. 12:14; 1Pet. 1:14-16). Baptism in the Holy Ghost is the infilling of the heart of the sanctified with the Holy Spirit at baptismal measure and the enduement with power from on High. It is usually accompanied with the speaking of a language unlearned previously, referred to as "speaking in tongues". Speaking in tongues is not taught people, since it is 'as the Holy Spirit gives utterance' to the baptised. (Matt. 3:11; 1:8; Lk. 3:16; 24:49; Jn. 1:30-33; 7:37-39; 14:16,17,26; 15:26; 16:12-15; Acts 1:5-8; Mk. 16:17; Acts 2:1-18; 10:44-46; 19:1-6). The gifts of the Holy Spirit are for today. (1Cor. 12:1-31; 14:1-40). Also the rule is "purity before power" (cp. Heb. 1:9).×

3 fold end-Time Project
THE Lord has designed a definite 3-fold End-time Project. As stated earlier, the project, a world-wide programme is comprised of: (i) raising a great army of believers of the various denominations for an imminent great harvest of souls; (ii) bringing about a great harvest of souls into the kingdom, as well as a mighty revival in the entire Church (comp. Acts 4:32; 5:14; 6:5; 13:45 ); (iii) fulfilling what the Lord has termed "the pre-rapture necessity" (Ephesians 4:11-15; 5:27). Hereunder are some further information on each aspect of the project.
NB. All that is discussed hereunder on this project is revelation-knowledge. By revelation-knowledge we mean, "knowledge brought directly and expressly into the heart of a believer or a man of God by the Holy Spirit" (eg. Matthew 16:15-17; 1 Corinthians 2:7-10; Galatians 1:11-12; Ephesians 3:3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13,15-17).×
SUNDAY LIGHT FELLOWSHIPThe Sunday Light Fellowship is a time of revelation and restoration based on the infallible word of God. The second fellowship session is the:
WEEKLY BIBLE STUDYThe Weekly Bible Study fellowship is a time of In-depth Study of the Word of God. This is the bedrock of the Watchman fellowship and no man can see God at last who toys with the Bible Study
THE CHARISMATIC HOURThis is a time of power, miracles, signs and wonders. It is a time when stones are turned to pillow. No man remains the same after the Charismatic Hour because as such time God’s power comes down tremendously removing all sorts of problems and leaving songs of joy on our lips.
Schedule of live servicesBelow is the schedule of all live services on Watchman Live TV for the week beginning on Sunday. All times are GMT. Sunday - 9.00 am - Sunday Light Tuesday - 7.00 pm - Charismatic Hour Thursday - 7.00 pm - Bible Study ×
The Lord, being the God of truth and truthfulness (see Deuteronomy 32:4; Romans 3:4; Hebrews 6:18), and knowing that only the holder of truth and the truthful shall be established (Proverbs 12:19), is raising a great army of believers, whose loins will be constantly girded with the girdle of the truth of God's Word and with truthfulness (Ephesians 6:14; John 8:32). This is exactly what He had commended and commanded both of old and in this dispensation (see Proverbs 12:19; Zephaniah 3:13; Malachi 2:6; Zechariah 8:16; John 8:32; Ephesians 4:25; 6:14).
AN ARMY WEARING THE BREAST-PLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
In the physical, the breast-plate, the piece of armour plate worn by soldiers or other combatant security agents to protect the breast (the chest) and the organs within, is of cardinal importance. It is in this light that we see righteousness as a spiritual breast-plate. Righteousness spoken of here is not only the righteousness of Christ, imputed to the believer (Romans 10:4; 1 Corinthians 1:30; Philippians 3:9 ), but also the believer's personal right-living (Matthew 5:20; 1 Corinthians 15:34; Ephesians 6:14; Philippians 1:11).
