"I am going to Japan with a purpose; I plan to marry Shigeko and being a new life."

"I am a man with a purpose; I will not rest until I find a better way to deliver medical care to the poor."

 

Something like that?

 

 

"On purpose" has a very different meaning (de propósito).

 

"She broke the plate on purpose.  She did not want her sister to have it."

"It wasn't an accident.  He did it on purpose."
