Message from Pastor At and Nyretta Boshoff
It is a great joy for us to know that there are so many students wanting to “Study to show themselves approved” (2 Timothy 2:15). As you study, you will find yourself getting to know Jesus Christ more clearly and personally. You will come to the realisation of the importance of the ministry of reconciliation.
As you continue in your studies, you will experience that God and His Word are one. The Word is always now.
Hebrews 4:12 says “The logos of God is a living thing, active and more cutting than any sword with a double edge, penetrating to the very division of the soul and spirit, joint and marrow – scrutinizing the very thoughts and conceptions of the heart”. (Moffat Translation)
The Word is called the logos, Jesus is the logos and the logos is a living entity, not a book nor on the written page but on the lips of the believer.
In your studies, you will find that the Word is our contact with God. God is not looking for perfect people, just yielded vessels through whom He can flow to touch the lives of humanity.
God uses us – in spite of us, because of Jesus, and because we offer ourselves to Him and say “Lord, send me”. As you learn new truths, trust the Holy Spirit to stir up the supernatural within you.
- Our duty is not merely to fill you with facts, but also with the truth, and principles that will help you in your everyday living.
- Our aim is to raise up dynamic, vibrant, Spirit-led believers who will mend the nets and disciple nations.
- Our prayer is that you will grow in Spiritual Maturity and fulfil the commission given to us by Jesus Himself… And we encourage you to go and win the hearts of the lost for Him.
Equipping the Saints for Ministry
Christian Revival Church Bible Training Centre is designed to be one of the avenues to “Equip the Saints for the work of the ministry”.
We believe that as you diligently set yourself aside to study God’s Word, (2 Timothy 2:15) you will develop your spiritual senses, enabling you to discern between both good and evil, and becoming skilled in the word of righteousness.
- To equip every member to become effective in fulfilling the great Commission of Jesus to preach the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
- To train you to become an effective, mature Christian in your home, workplace and community.
- To assist you in becoming an effective leader in the local Church.
Our desire is not to only stimulate your intellect, but
- To release an impartation that will enlarge your spiritual life and effectiveness.
- To lead you to committed and effective service within the local congregation. Unless you are actively involved in a practical way, all the studies will simply be a mental exercise that can lead to pride, because knowledge without application puffs up.
- To enable you to be positioned to discover God’s purpose and destiny for your life by Studying God’s Word.
- To assist you to look to God for wisdom and understanding to interpret His Will and Way for your life, by the Holy Spirit.
