CMU Ministries is a nondenominational Christian out reach ministry. CMU Ministries and CMU Theological University were established in June of 1993. For the sole purpose of equipping the saints of God for carrying out the "Great Commission" as recorded in the Book of Matthew 28:19: 

The founders are Dr. Billey "Bill" Finney, Th. D.  and Dr. Sharon Tackett Finney, Th.D. Have both earned their theology degrees from Carolina University of Theology in Charlotte, NC and Manassas, VA. Dr. Sharon Finney earned a secular  college education from Hill College Hillsboro, TX,  Fairmont State College in Fairmont, WV, and Tarrant County Jr. College, in Hearst, TX.    



Christian Missionaries United Ministries (CMU) and CMU Theological University (CMUTU)  were established in 1993 as a home missions project envisioned by the Finneys. CMUTU has been instrumental in equipping the saints for ministering the "Great Commission" to the lost. Since 1993, CMUTU has held eight graduation ceremonies, and has conferred 64 degrees to individual students.

The Finneys, through CMU has been instrumental in aiding the local and surrounding communities in feeding programs, clothing distributions, Bible studies, flood and fire relief, as well as pastoring a local church since obtaining state recognition as a corporation (non-profit, and the approval from the state of WV Higher Education Policy Commission to grant degrees in all areas of Christian education. CMUTU now offers degree programs in Biblical Studies, Christian education, Christian Counseling Psychology, theology, Ministry, chaplaincy,  minister training and ordination. Our curriculum is of the highest quality distance education programs available.  We have sought out the best textbooks available and our courses are designed especially for the  students who need distance education due to the inability to live on campus because of travel, affordability, or because of jobs and family responsibility.


The Finneys, along with the Board of Directors, donate their time to CMU and CMUTU as an offering to the Lord. No one at CMU is on salary, and  the ministry is supported solely by the modest  tuition fees from enrolled students which are minimal due to the fact that most students are awarded partial or full scholarships,  and by the donations from sympathetic supporters who share the vision for equipping the saints of God to carry out the "Great Commission." 


If CMU or CMUTU has been a blessing to you or someone you know, and you would like to be part of  the scholarship programs or ministry support, you can make a donation by using PayPal account cmutheologicalu@aol.coM


We believe in the Apostle's Creed which says,"

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, His Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the Right Hand of God the Father Almighty. From there He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Christian Church, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen:

We believe in the gifts of the Spirit, and we operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We believe in water baptism in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew  28:19).  We believe every born-again saint is to be disciple  and equipped to go and witness to the lost,  and to make disciples of all nations.  

We believe in the sanctity of marriage between one woman and one man.  We believe in the sanctity of life from the moment of conception, and each individual life belongs to God the Father.  

We believe that salvation is by faith through God's grace alone, not from anything we, ourselves can do to earn it. (Ephesians 2:8,9).

We believe it is the responsibility of every born-again believer to study the Scriptures. Ignorance of the Word of God is no excuse. for the Scripture teaches us to "Study to show yourself approved unto God, a worker that needs no to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word." 2 Timothy 2:15.
