Three things have to happen to bring souls into the Kingdom, and not one can be left out or set aside as being impertinent to God's holy plan. They are as relevant and equal in His plan and purpose for saving and nurturing the soul as the trinity is to God's plan and presence. Therefore, we preach the message, baptize the believer and begin a lifetime of teaching the discipline of the Sacred Word.
How do we bring all of this together on the mission field?
We build schools and hire Christian teachers.
Good Shepherd Ministries have seen thousands of children directly impacted with the gospel through our schools.
"As I have traveled around Haiti I have personally met graduates
from Good Shepherd Ministries schools that are now serving as pastors,
teachers, doctors, and government officials. These graduate students
are maintaining strategic roles vital for the desperately needed
changes in the country of Haiti"
Quote from Bill Younger the Executive Director of Good Shepherd Ministries
Jesus was a teacher. He taught in the Synagogue, on the mountainside, by the sea, and on the sea. His creation was his pulpit. He used parables, analogies, and comparisons to teach truths.
The Sermon on the Mount was a discourse by Jesus to teach us how to live, to shape attitudes, to teach the character and purpose of discipleship.
By providing these schools we have the opportunity to disciple these children with the hopes of seeing them surrender their lives to full time ministry. These graduates then become the seeds for the planting and development of churches for the future.
me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth,
and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all
(Psalms 25:4, 5, NIV)
The Great Commission, given to us by our Lord and Savior as His last earthly message to us was:
Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
(Matthew 28:19, 20 NIV)
