What We Believe – About The Bible

love-699480_640

We believe the Bible (Scripture) as found in 66 books, considered the “Canon” of scripture, is the revealed Word of God. Several things determine such books, among them being is it authoritative and/or is it prophetic. This is determined by either having the authority of a spiritual leader of Israel and/or an apostle of the church.

Such books must be consistent with each other in revealing truth, being dynamic and received by the early church. We believe God inspired these books, as the Holy Spirit moved men. This inspiration is true and equal to all parts as contained within the original manuscripts, and as a result, they contain no error.

The Choices of Pharaoh

choices

There is a great story in the Old Testament that almost everyone knows.  It’s the story of Moses leading God’s people out of Egypt. You can find the story in Exodus…It starts in Exodus 4 and continues for a few chapters. In fact, it is one of the longer stories in the Old Testament and galvanized Israel as the people of God. It’s one of the keystone stories of their faith.  
 
It also has several important lessons for us, but I would like to focus on just one of those lessons today. The hardening of Pharaoh’s heart is the story I would like to bring to your attention.  It’s one that is often overlooked but it is significant in several ways.

What is the motivation upon which I should serve God?

Enjoy this excerpt from Walking in God’s Grace…

Ever go to a zoo and watch how the animals seem very docile, even the wildest of creatures? If we were to see such animals in the wild, they indeed would be roaming free and running with unchained, uncaged abandonment. This is the difference between someone who is motivated to live their lives by something smaller than God (idolization) in order to gain the acceptance of man or God, versus someone who has discovered that God loves them regardless of how they respond or act.

The Source of our strength

blue-656342_640By Latasha Ransome

Philippians 4:13 is a Scripture that I hold near to my heart and it has helped me through my faith journey in Christ immensely. Its writer Paul states; I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Paul professes this as a statement of faith during a very challenging time during his faith journey in Christ. Paul understood that despite his opposition God would be there to help him endure through it Deuteronomy 31:6. Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

I believe this mindset is crucial for believers today, primarily because we too will encounter challenges throughout our faith journey…

I love

coffeeBy Shasta Monet

This morning I woke up and right off the bat I felt the weight of everything on my chest.

But then I heard a quiet whisper..don’t look at the things that are dark. Look at the things that bring light..things that you love. For I AM in these things. All of them.

So here it goes..

​A Mother’s love 

2By Jessica Dixon

A mother’s love can only be felt not explained.

A mother’s love is unconditional. As we grow older we tend to realize that as we were child​ren we didn’t appreciate our moms as much as we do now.

Not everyone gets the blessing of being a mom. I myself am struggling to have a baby and having lost a baby, I know how hard it is and how much pain you feel during these times.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
