The Word International Ministries’ name was derived from John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” The church believes that Jesus Christ clearly impressed upon the church leaders that no endeavor will succeed if it does not start with God. Collectively, it was agreed by the church leadership that the name aside from identification purposes was to principally declare that Jesus Christ – the Creator, the Master – is the Lord of the church. Thus the Word, or the logos, became the church's main name. The inclusion of the word “International” was deemed necessary since the church's mandate extends beyond its original border, the Philippines which was influenced by the Filipino diaspora in every part of the world. The addition of the word “ministries” was also necessary as the church believes that the door to servanthood and creative evangelism is the ministry. The word WIN, which stands for Word International, was adopted to describe the mission and its people to remind its members to win the lost to the Lord.
