“For where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he”.
And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the and it shall speak, and not lie; though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God”.
(St. John 3:3)
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved”.
(St. John 3:14-17).
Our Ministry firmly believes and teaches the new birth as an unavoidable prerequisite to being a child of God, walking with Christ and being led by the Holy Spirit as further conveyed in Romans 8:14.
“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed, And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free””. (St. John 8:31-32).
“And Jesus came and spake unto them saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost; Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and , lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
(St. Matt. 28:18-20)
” For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
“For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”
(St. Mark 10:45)
“But Jesus called them unto Him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and thy that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister, And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many”.
(St. Matt. 20:25-28).
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them tat are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”
(St. Luke 4:18)
UNITE THE BODY
“That they all may be one, as thou Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me, I have given them that they may be one, even as we are one. I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.”
(St. John 17:21-23)
PERFECT THE BODY
He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that He might fill all things. And he gave some, apostles, and some, prophets, and some, pastors and teachers, For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:”
DEPLOY THE BODY
“Ye are the salt of the earth; but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.”
(St. Matt. 5:13-15).
MANIFEST THE KINGDOM
“For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope. Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
