The Church Of God In Christ has long been involved in missions and evangelism; however, neither the foreign work nor local participation and execution of our mission work has had the phenomenal growth of our organization. Vital concern for missions must be deeply rooted in the program of the Church of God in Christ on the local, state and national levels. The objective of this organizational publication is to bring awareness to every leader —- whether bishop, pastor, state mother or leader in general — of the fact that there is a need for a renewed spirit of mission in our church. This can only be done through mission education. The day is far spent and the time has passed when we could rely on the singing of our choirs and teaching of the various entities of the church such as bible band classes and youth classes alone. We must now give valid instructions in the art of soul-winning; and, above all; the main vocation of the church is to expand its borders and engage in reaching the whole world for Christ.... This book and the materials contained therein will aid the mission-minded individual in that work for missions. This fascinating book is considered the ‘organizational bible’ in the Department Of Missions for the Church Of God In Christ. Every mission worker should have this publication in their possession to have a better understanding of what missions is and is NOT. What is expected of each mission worker and what each mission worker should expect of the church.
This informative first-of-a-kind activity calendar for the Brasil Jurisdiction retains a comprehensive listing of all Church of God In Christ churches, districts, jurisdictional/women departmental staff, the American representatives and all of the ecclesiastical activities scheduled for the entire 2005 calendar year! Bishop Moore, Mother Van Zandt and their staff members labored greatly to produce this fine publication. There is a wonderful 'break-out' of the five Districts within the Brazilian Church and names, addresses, phone number and even e-mail addresses! If you would ever have a need to know the organizational structure of the Brasilian Church, this would be the publication for you. As an 'added' bonus.......the one booklet is published in English on one page and Portuguese on the other!
This thought-provoking publication will equip you with the necessary tools to be successful and face the challenges that the 21st century will bring. Regardless of whether you are 10 or 100 years old, if you follow the steps outlined in this book you are guaranteed success! This guarantee is not based on the author’s expertise of knowledge, but on the word of God. God has written each believer a ‘blank check’ and all we have to do is fill out the amount and deposit it into our “soul account”. Many believers accounts are running empty on Love, Joy, Peace and Happiness, but God has just given it back to you to deposit into your account. Others have been chronically depressed, lacked confidence and did not feel worthy, but God is telling you today that He loves you tremendously. This publication lets you know that it is time to move full speed ahead toward freedom. Remember freedom is not a destination, but a journey that we accept throughout our lives. Step-by-step, day-by-day refuse to accept anything less that true freedom for your entire being, spirit, soul and body. Remember, God created you special and that He has a purpose for your life on that day. Seek your purpose each day and allow God to use you in a special way. The goal of FREEDOM JOURNEY is to assist you to prevent detours and obstacles as you travel down the journey of life. Therefore, it is necessary to not only understand the concepts discussed, but to internalize them until they become a part of your very spirit.
Today, as in the past, believers become tied, shackled and bound with the secrets of their past as well as with current problems of carnality. Most believers in our churches would never label themselves as 'bound'. However, the 'acid test' of liberty is where God freely works through witnessing, healing, deliverance, peace, love, etc. One of the most frightening things going on in the Holiness and Pentecostal churches today is the range of entertainment in most services. People come to church to be entertained or to entertain. The services are wonderful events of emotional ventilation and psychological release. People so indeed feel better for a day or two. Yes, members ought to enjoy the services and fellowship but if it is without the true depths of God's anointing, then people maybe losing spiritual ground. This short book deals with those 'influences' and 'personal issues' which limit the Christian's growth and ultimately brings the believer into BONDAGE. Read and gain a better understanding of bondage particularly when Christians fail to identify and deal with the pains, issues and faults in their lives.
