About The Center
The Bible is the Center of The Center
We believe that the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God. We believe that as canonized it contains the entire message that is to be conveyed to men and women by a holy God. We base the ministry around the Bible as the tool we use to explain to people that God loves them and has a plan for their lives.
We follow the words of the Apostle Paul in 2nd Timothy when giving final instructions before his execution wrote:
“Preach the Word…” (2 Timothy 4:2a)
We rely on the promise made through the prophet Isaiah:
“…so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11)
Taking Jesus as He is to people as they are
Taking means we have to go with the gospel of Jesus to where He needs to be known. For us that is to the 10-40 window where the majority of the unreached people in the world live. We carry the gospel personally, by establising home groups among the indigenous people, providing access to the gospel over the internet and by praying constantly.
Jesus as He is:
We do not try to establish “platforms” for our ministries. Our message is simple. It is Christ born, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose again on the 3rd day proving He has power over death.
To people as they are:
We do not build big churches and schools. We go into peoples homes and work places to share Christ with them. Where they are and how they are.
In 2012 4,865 people accepted Christ as their savior through this ministry and 1,548 were baptised.
