We are a Church dedicated to teaching and training those who desire to be better Christian disciples by developing Ministers Deacon/Deaconess as well as lay individuals with proper teaching and training to Bear fruit for the kingdom of God. We use the Bible as our basis of authority, devoting our lives to study, to learning and teaching. Proverbs says that a wise man will hear and learn, and will acquire wise counsel (Proverbs 1:5). So we can assume that an unwise man will not hear from others, will shut them down and will not listen, will lack understanding and will not acquire wise counsel. This is why discipleship is so important.
