Purpose and Objectives:-
Our purpose is to make you - our visitor aware of the 'hope' of God and of the gospel of Christ . . . and we also want to encourage our own members who live in the Holy Land.
We do this to show our gratitude to God who has had others teach us the truth of Scripture and we preach it in love so that others will believe in the promises of God and be baptized into Christ.
Our objectives include:
- Teaching God's truth according to Scripture. E.g., according to Scripture, there is only one hope and one gospel (cf. Ephesians 4:4, Galatians 1:7). Therefore it is critical that people get to hear the real Christian hope, not a false one. It is vital that we preach the full gospel of the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ (cf. Acts 8:12), not just part of the story.
- Providing relevant teaching material and tools. E.g., we plan to provide on-line resources such as Bible study courses, booklets on fundamental topics and a disciple's workbook; we will supply educational DVDs on key Bible subjects, praise music on CDs and Bible-study aids; and we will conduct group Bible classes, personal classes, public seminars, Youth Group meetings, and Sunday worship.
- Helping the community in practical ways. E.g., volunteering for things such as "faith in action" projects, serving on appropriate committees, offering professional expertise gratis, and just plain offering a hand to get a job done.
All of the foregoing is meant to facilitate the responsibility each person bears to search out God and His precious Word of Truth. In providing help for people to get back-to-the-Bible, God's Word will become their source for informed individual and communal religion.
