Our Mission and Method
To operate an Internet site and publish books on Bible doctrines and applications. These books are directed towards adults, with a goal to:
|"teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:20).
"preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching"(2 Timothy 4:2-4.)
"hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it" (Titus 1:9).
Thus this series' aim is to give sound Bible teaching.
Why Such Studies?
There is a need for articles and books on basic Bible doctrines and teachings to glorify Jesus Christ and to firmly established His church and true discipleship in Christian's lives.
Publication and Distribution:
The most effective way should be used to distributed the series. "Selling" probably is not the most effective way in distributing books, nor is it a biblical way. Totally free distribution is the long-term goal since it follows Jesus' and Paul's example of making the Gospel message available without charge. Some booklets are presently available free. Presently it is necessary to sell the books. Some will be given away free to those outside the States or who cannot afford to pay for them and promise to read them.
The organization will be kept small and informal. Requirements for income will be kept to a minimum by using all funds for printing and mailing; no funds will be used to paid salaries or royalties except in very extraordinary cases. As for funds to do this, one will trust in the Lord to provide.
This work must be built as the early church was built, which is the pattern used by the Anabaptist-Mennonites, and not imitate the Protestant and Roman Catholic institutional approach to the church.
The long term goal is to accompany the printed page with teaching sessions in local churches. This should create interest in studying and reading our books. These meetings would be in sharp contrast to the emotional evangelistic / revival meetings. They would be teaching experiences that rely on instruction and the Holy Spirit to produce fruit. Adult home schooling lessons could be developed for the books.
