After several years of evangelism, I realised that Christians can do evangelism themselves, but there is a great need of training and teaching the right doctrines to leaders. We have been doing that for 35 years here in Soweto, South Africa.
We are living in the days when a lot of false doctrines, cults and occult practices are spreading. Some of these cults find their way into the church. Most of the people who come to our Bible school do not even know the first principle of their faith that we read about in Hebrews chapter 6, let alone are able to teach it to others.
Over the years we are beginning to see churches that are built on the strong foundation of the Word of God. Motivational preaching is good, but I believe that solid biblical teaching is needed the most. The Bible teaches that people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, and knowledge comes in great part through being taught. We train our students to spend time in prayer, how to study the Bible and how to pass it to others. We teach them that the clean life is important as a leader, that you must practise what you preach.
Please pray for our school. We are expecting about 60 new students for the coming year. To God be the glory!
