Every ministry has within its DNA a mandate, vision and focus given by the Lord. It is this DNA which identifies the mantle of the ministry and which draws people to its ranks in order to fulfill a commission from the Lord. Not all ministries have the same mandate or vision however all have the same DNA with the same purpose and that is to expand the Kingdom of God on the earth. God’s plan was never for the body of Christ to compete against each other but rather to collectively spread the message of the Cross, each in their own unique calling.
Fuzion Ministries International was founded by Colin Blom along with co-founders Noel & Susan Lunsford on August 12th, 2009 as a non-denominational ministry located in Jacksonville, Florida USA. The heart of the ministry is to reach key countries with the Gospel of Jesus Christ by equipping leaders with the necessary tools to impact their communities. It was in 2010 when the launching of Fuzion Bible Institute took place as a fulfillment of a prophetic word. (Read more about it in the History section below). The DNA of Fuzion Bible Institute is two-fold: Train and Equip its students for the work of the ministry, and secondly to actively have its students to engage in missions and ministry.
What gives Fuzion its uniqueness is our two-fold approach in combining and fusing together Academics with Missions/Ministry. Each student must partake in a ministry internship.
Habakkuk 2:14 “For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea.”
Psalms 111:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.”
John 12:46 “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.”
In 1998 while studying at Christ For the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas, Dr Colin received a very specific prophetic word regarding the establishment of an International Training Center that would be multi-ethnic, multi-national and multi-cultural in nature. This center’s primary focus would be used to equip leaders for taking the Gospel throughout Africa. Taking the Gospel into the tough areas where so much prejudice and tribal disunity is taking place. The prophetic word also stated that there would be the meeting with key leaders, tribal leaders in South Africa and beyond. It was only until 2010 that through the leading of the Lord that Fuzion Bible Institute (FBI) was birthed. The very first FBI campus was established in Salt River, Cape Town that same year. Fuzion has since expanded into multiple provinces in South Africa as well as the USA.
Fuzion is a movement that exists to expand the Kingdom of God globally by raising up an army of end-time soldiers through recruiting, training, equipping, commissioning, and deploying them for the coming spiritual revolution.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 “Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”
Our mission is to establish a global footprint of highly trained believers through strategic initiatives that include but not limited to the establishment of training centers, new churches, networking of church leaders and ministers, and through the Apostolic and Prophetic voice to bring Biblical stability and unity to the army of Christ.
What We Believe
We are a non-denominational, Spirit-filled ministry, yet we are not opposed to denominations as such, only to the over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.
The Holy Scripture – We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, irrevocable and complete Word of God and is therefore our supreme and final authority in all matters that it addresses. (2 Tim. 3:16, 17)
The Eternal Godhead – We believe that God is Triune, existing eternally and simultaneously as three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All three persons in the Godhead share equally and completely the one divine nature, and are therefore the same God, coequal in power, nature and glory. (1 John 5:7)
Jesus Christ – We believe that Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, is God the Son who has neither beginning nor ending. He was conceived in the flesh by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is fully God and fully man. Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and arose bodily on the third day. He ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father as our only mediator, high priest, and advocate. He will return in glory to resurrect and judge all mankind. ( Matthew 1:23-25/ John 1:1/ 14:3/ Acts 4:12/ 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 & 20/ Philippians 2:5-11/ 1 Timothy 2:5-6/ Hebrews 4:14-16/ 1 Peter 2:22)
Holy Spirit – We believe that the Holy Spirit is God, the third person of the Trinity who is coequal with the Father and Son. The Holy Spirit’s ministries include: Convicting all people of sin; calling, bringing regenerating, indwelling, and baptizing believers into the Body of Christ; setting them apart to a holy life; and teaching, keeping, and empowering them day by day for godly living and spiritual service. The Holy Spirit distributes spiritual gifts to each believer according to His will. God in His sovereignty still works in miraculous ways. ( John 3:5-8/ Acts 1:8/ 5:3-4/ 16:7-14/ 1 Corinthians 2:9-12/ 3:16/ 12:3-13 & 28-31/ 13:8-11/ Galatians 5:16-25/ Ephesians 1:13-14/ 5:18/ Hebrews 2:3-4)
The Fall of Man – We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God to fellowship with Him and give Him glory. Adam and Eve through voluntary disobedience chose to rebel against God and as a result all of mankind became separated from God. The only remedy for this is redemption through faith in Jesus Christ. (Rom. 5:12)
Basis of Salvation – We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him and confess Jesus Christ as their Lord. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation and that there is absolutely no other way to be reconciled back to God the Father. (John 3:16; Rom. 5:8, Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 4:12)
Salvation through Grace – We believe that before salvation we have no righteousness of our own and must come to God through the righteousness of Christ. (Eph. 2:8)
Repentance and Acceptance – We believe that upon sincere repentance and a wholehearted acceptance of Christ as Lord, we are justified before God.(1 John 1:9)
Baptism of the Holy Spirit – We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is to endow the believer with power, and that His empowering is after the same manner as in Bible days. (Acts 1:8; 2:4)
The Spirit-Filled Life – We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit continually. (Rom. 8:1-2; 14-16)
The Gifts and the Fruit of the Spirit – We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life. (1 Cor. 12:1-11; Gal. 5:22-23; Rom. 12:6-8; Eph. 4:11-13)
Divine Healing – We believe that divine healing is the provision of Christ to heal the sick in response to the exercise of faith, the prayer of faith, the prayer of agreement, anointing with oil, the gifts of healing or the laying on of hands. We believe that this provision of Christ is for everyone today.
(1 Peter 2:24; Matt. 8:17; 18:18-19; James 5:14-16; 1 Cor. 2:9; Mark 16:15-18; Matt. 24:35; Mark 13:31; Luke 21:33)
The Second Coming – We believe that the Second Coming of Christ is literal and inevitable. (1Thes. 4:16-17)
Church Fellowship – We believe it is our sacred duty to identify and actively participate with the local and visible church of Christ. (Acts 16:5; Heb. 10:25)
Civil Government – We believe that the laws of the land should be upheld at all times except in matters opposed to the Word of God. (Rom. 13:1-5)
The Final Judgment – We believe that all shall stand one day before God in final judgment, and there receive eternal reward or eternal judgment. (2 Cor. 5:10; Rev. 20:11-13)
Heaven – We believe that heaven is a literal place, eternally existent. (John 14:2; Rev. 7:15-17)
Hell – We believe that hell is a literal place of eternal torment for all who reject the Lord Jesus Christ. (Rev. 20:10,15)
The New Birth – We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a literal one and is the result of being born of the Spirit of God.(2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 2:20; John 3:5-7)
Daily Christian Life – We believe that it is the will of God that we live a sanctified and holy life, growing constantly in the Faith.(Heb. 6:1)
Water Baptism – We believe that baptism by immersion in water is an outward sign of the inward work of salvation.(Matt. 28:19)
The Lord’s Supper – We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolical use of the bread and the juice of the vine.(1 Cor. 11:28)
Evangelism – We believe that evangelism is the Great Commission given to the Church and as the church every believer is spiritually obligated in fulfilling this commission. (James 5:20; Mark 16:15; 2 Cor. 5:18-21)
Tithes and Offerings – We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by the giving of tithes and freewill offerings. (Mal. 3:10; 2 Cor. 9:7; Heb. 7:8)
Church Government – We believe in church government to ensure order, and we believe in loyalty to those acting in rightful authority as they lead us in the Lord. (1Peter 5:1-5; Rom. 13)
Worship -We believe that “acceptable” and “true” worship is prescribed by God Himself in His Word. This embodies individual and corporate expressions of praise and thanksgiving and reverence in holiness. We believe worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship. (John 4:24; Psalm 150)
Unity, Understanding and Love – We believe that in essentials there must be unity, in nonessentials — understanding, and in all things – love. We believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ’s Agape love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
Marriage, Gender and Sexuality – Fuzion Ministries International and Fuzion Bible Institute fully embrace the teachings of the traditional biblical view with regard to the goodness of our sexuality, the importance of chastity and the place of heterosexual marriage as God’s intended context for complete sexual expression to occur (Gen.2:21-24.)
Fuzion believes that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen 1:26-27.)
Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
We also believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen 2:18-25.) We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between one man and one woman, who are married to each other. (1 Cor 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb 13:4.) We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between one man and one woman.
Therefore, any form of sexual immorality, including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of printed, videoed, or virtual pornography is sinful (Matt 15:18-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.)
We define adultery as the turning of one’s intimate affections to someone other than the spouse. Sometimes, but not always, these affections culminate in sexual activity. Fornication includes any form of sexual intercourse, oral sex or any physical contact producing sexual stimulation.
We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of Fuzion, and to provide a biblical role model to the members of Fuzion and the community, it is imperative that all members of Fuzion, those employed by Fuzion in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, agree to and abide by this Statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality. (Matt 5:16; Phil 2:14-16; 1 Thess 5:22.)
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. (Acts 3:19-21; Rom 10:9-10; 1 Cor 6:9-11.)
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31.) Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of Fuzion.
