We accomplish this through our RSMI Training Centers for Biblical Studies
We also host intensified pastor’s seminars that challenge these indigenous servants of God to think about the Bible in a way that upholds its integrity.
It is sad to note that in many developing nations, pastors with a powerful call on their lives must rely on obtaining their knowledge from television programs that are broadcast from the west. Countless times this information is then blended with cultural traditions that are far from biblical, resulting in a doctrine no longer resembling scriptural truth.
This, we believe, is because throughout large portions of the Church today, that which is presented as biblical truth falls far short of apostolic doctrine, or following this doctrine, what the body of Christ has held to be accurate down through the centuries.
To restore the biblical process and the way God has chosen to build His church, we pursue the Eph 4:11-13 pattern of ministry as laid out by the Apostle Paul.
This states that the Pastors are to equip their people, and the people, in turn, are to do the work of the ministry
The Flow of the Ephesians 4:11-13 Principle can be understood this way.
Why is this Important?
As this process takes place, where not only the pastors but also the people of God are trained, we will see individuals – families – communities – and nations changed for the glory of Christ.
How is it that we are to be faithful to the words of the Lord to “make disciples (Matt 28:19-20)”, “teaching them to observe all that I have commanded,” if the word of God is not taught accurately?
It is biblical truth, not men, that changes lives through the work of the Holy Spirit. The change that is accomplished is declared in the Scripture itself (2 Tim 3:16).
The Ephesians four principle brings wholeness in every area of existence. Therefore the lives of all people are affected holistically as well.
