Loving, Serving & Empowering

Our Story

Pastor Jones acknowledged his call to ministry and began working in Youth Ministry in 1986 while submitted to Bishop Henry Hearns at First Missionary Baptist Church (now Living Stone Cathedral), Littlerock, CA. He married First Lady Princella in 1987, collaborated to reach the teens and families in the Antelope Valley. They established outreach events to reach the un-churched, untaught, lost, and uncommitted. This included music, drama/theater, educational excellence, and retreats to the mountains of California. Of note was a play written by Dr. Jones entitled "The Problem With Teenagers". This unique production invited parents and teens to swap roles - teens as parents; parents as teens. The Spirit of the Lord moved to unite and reconcile families to one another in love.  Pastor Jones came to Anchorage during his final assignment while serving in the U.S. Air Force. 

Ambassadors for Christ Ministries, Inc. (AFCM) dba Embassy Christian Center (ECC) was birthed out of a vision God gave James and Princella according to 2 Corinthians 5:20, as they prepared to move from the Mojave Desert to the Last Frontier.



Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven  and on earth.  JESUS' said  as his last command was for us to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you;

                                                                                                                 Matthew 28:18-20a


We believe that salvation is the Will of God  for everyone and Jesus the Christ came that we might have and enjoy life, in abundance, to the full, until it overflows (John 10:10 b Amplified Bible). Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity.  


We are on a mission to teach and preach the uncompromising living Word of God and faith in His name; to be a channel for the release of

God's power and love.  


To walk in honesty, integrity, and truth; to exhort and teach others  to do likewise.
