About the author:
I call myself Missionary Bill. If you require a label, most people would consider me a Born-Again, Bible Believing, Conservative Christian. I study and use the King James Version Bible. I am not a Pastor, but have held many positions in local churches including those of a Missionary, Junior Church Leader, Youth Leader, Bus Captain and Evangelist. I have helped to plant a hand full of churches in different areas of the Northeast USA and elsewhere. I have a certificate in Biblical Studies, but am certainly not a Bible Scholar. What I have learned by experience working in local Churches and with people that I consider to be great men and women of God, along with my personal studies in the Word of God, is what I hope to share with you.
Fundamentals Of Bible Believing Christianity
Amidst all the many church discipleship, stewardship, evangelism and training programs for pastors, leaders and congregations there is one thing missing: the Fundamentals of the Faith. Many Christians know more about their church's budget than they do about the Fundamentals of the Christian Faith as outlined in the Word of God. Why? Because the emphasis of most of these church programs is not on the Bible, but on so-called successful church operation and management methods that have moved far away from the things of God to some corporate culture.
While it is true that churches should be good stewards when it comes to finances, training their people, taking care of their members and managing their resources, it's also true that nothing which is taught or occurs in any Bible believing House of God should go forward without being built on the solid Rock that is the Word of God. Too many Christians and church leaders subscribe to the false teachings of the 'health and wealth' gospel crowd the and 'seed faith' money grabbers. Jesus warned us against these things in Matthew 7:15-29...
"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes."
You cannot preach, teach or manage any Christian Ministry without the authority that comes from Jesus Christ and the Bible. If you are not starting there, you are robbing yourself and your people of an infinite power source and will be like the house built on sand. Christians cannot obey God or find his will for their lives without building on the Rock. Before you can fully activate that power and authority, you must make certain that you are following the Fundamentals of the Faith and not being lead astray by the latest churchy trend or program. Anything that leads you away from Jesus Christ and the Bible will lead you to personal and ministerial destruction.
