FAMILY ON A MISSION

About Us

Agape Freedom Fighters exists to set captives free through the ministry of healing and evangelism in the name of Jesus Christ. 

As an apostolic ministry, we bring the good news of the gospel with the Word of God and the supernatural presence of the Holy Spirit. Agape training programs are designed to equip individuals, church and regional prayer teams with practical, theologically grounded training in the ministry of physical healing, inner healing, deliverance, and prophecy. We are an international, non-denominational, Christian organization specializing in teaching, equipping and training leaders and laypeople to fulfill the vision of Jesus in Luke 9:11 and Matthew 10:7-8 where Jesus embraced the people, instructed them about the Kingdom of God and healed those in need.


"When the crowds learned it, they followed him, and he welcomed them and spoke to them of the kingdom of God and cured those who had need of healing."

-Luke 9:11


"Preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.' Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give."

-Matt:10-7-8
