Showing God's love through ministries of mercy
Changing lives through strength-based partnerships
What We Believe
We at UBIA Ministries believe that our focus as part of the true church must be on our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ rather than denominational distinctions. That being said, we are evangelical, fundamental and firmly committed to a personal relationship with Christ. We stand on the authority of scripture and adhere to the statement of faith set forth in the Apostle’s Creed. Our ministries are guided by the principles Jesus presented in what has been commonly referred to as The Greatest Commandment and The Great Commission.
Giving to the poor and needy does not mean just a monetary donation. We give of our time, our love, our prayers and, yes, sometimes our money. UBIA Ministries sponsors orphans, gives food to the hungry and provides medical care to those suffering from HIV/AIDS. Our present ministries include ministering to orphans and vulnerable children, supporting HIV/AIDS outreach and facilitating local evangelism in Tanzania. Our future vision includes the possibility of supporting palliative care in Tanzania and a medical clinic in Mexico.
The entire premise of UBIA Ministries is based on strengths-based partnerships. We bring our gifts, skills and talents to the table and we work alongside others who bring different gifts, talents and skills. There are many ways to get involved and share in our mission, including: sharing your specialized knowledge and skills, becoming a prayer partner, sponsoring a child, visiting our ministry programs, conducting a fund-raiser and sharing our vision with others. We are always open to new ideas and suggestions.
About UBIA Ministries
UBIA Ministries is a Christian, non-denominational 501c3 charitable organization with a vision to show God’s love and help change lives. Our name derives from the Swahili word, UBIA. For us, it is also an acronym for "Uniting Believers in Action." We serve by coming alongside existing ministries worldwide to help the orphans, the widows, the sick and the needy. We bring our finances and talents to the table while also embracing the values of encouraging self-sustainability, empowering local leadership, creating strength-based partnerships, maintaining personal relationships and ensuring transparent accountability.

UBIA ministries and North Bible Church have helped Gospel Herald Ministries in Tanzania to fulfill its goals:
- By acquiring new sponsors for children, by providing furniture for the devotions room in the Kim Jones Children’s home,
- By helping to build a structure for outside laundry which economize use of fresh water by using stream water for washings,
- By installing a big washing machine for children at KJH, that has helped save time, labor and expenses,
- By supporting our ministry to carry out evangelistic campaigns by preaching in open air crusades commencing on February 2015 and also by supporting training for palliative care providers.
- UBIA ministries is also sending some regular donations for monthly shopping at Kim Jones Children’s home.
