The Time of Change

In our time we enjoy the freedoms of religion, assembly, press, and speech. There was a time that this was not the case.

The Faithfulness Factor

Before any individual can be placed in a position of leadership, the question must first be asked, “Will this person be faithful?” Faithfulness, dependability, reliable, trustworthy – as we have explained before, these are attributes that are worth their weight in gold.

Purpose in the Deeper Life of God’s Spirit

The ultimate purpose of God in bringing a body of saints into a deeper place of consecration unto Him is five-fold. It is for the purpose of perfection, preparation, restoration, manifestation, and glorification. Everything else has to fit into this eternal purpose or it will fail and come to naught. Now at the close of […]
