LORD AS WE COME INTO YOUR PRESENCEby SIXTUS ONYEANUSI
The Church meeting that is void of God's presence is not a fellowship sweet, but just a social club; a cultural gathering and a vain jangling; empty activity for it lacks the divine supply and nourishment, and divine thread that knits the hearts together in one love, passion, worship and focus of Christ the Head.
Why Apostolic Churches Must Look Beyond the Gospelsby Isaac Mwangi
What does it mean for a church to be apostolic, and what is the place of the gospel teachings in an apostolic church? While Jesus was a revolutionary in his day, a truly apostolic church needs to look beyond his words, and even those of the early apostles.
The Incomplete Discipleby Steve Countryman
To leave out the warnings and teachings of the Bible "so as not to offend" is to do a major disservice to today's believer! How can the Sheppard/pastor hope to help guide his flock in the paths of righteousness if he isn't willing to point those paths out to his flock? Those who are unwilling to turn from their sinful lifestyles are the ones who will always be offended at anything or anyone that criticizes their sinfulness.
Intentional Disciplemakingby Louise Lee
Disciples are made, not born. Intentional discipleship is required to produce these kinds of followers. In order to achieve these, strategies are required. No one builds a house without a blueprint and know-how. Building effective disciples requires more than just a good intention, but a strategized intention.

Church versus Fellowshipby Wayne Childress
All followers of Jesus are a member of His Church whether or not they attend a local congregation or not. Not all followers of Jesus have access to a group of true followers.
God's Church On Fireby Steve Countryman
It is what we have all been waiting for. It is what we have all been anticipating since it's foretelling in the scriptures. It is what God wants for His church. It is what today's church is lacking and extremely desperate for. It is what the church body was always supposed to be. It is the prophecies of the Old and New Testaments coming to pass. It is what the world of the lost has been searching for but cannot find. It is God's power displayed and His love revealed. It is God's will fulfilled. It is the mighty outpouring of Holy Spirit FIRE that the world has never seen. It is God's church on fire!
Don't Fall for False Teachersby Alan Allegra
The true clergyman will point you to Jesus Christ, "the Shepherd and Overseer [Bishop, KJV] of your souls" (1 Peter 2:25). Christ alone commands the destiny of your soul: "But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him!" (Luke 12:5).
What Is The Perfect Church for You?by Angel Casiano

Beware of Becoming Attached to Church Traditionsby Max Aplin
All too often churches allow traditions to become entrenched without proper consideration. Everything in a church that is not of first importance should be held loosely, and whenever potential improvements are recognised they should be put into effect without delay. There are times when upsetting some church members is a necessary price to pay for a church to move forward.
Bread for a Soul Part 1by Alfonso Abels

Immersion or union with Christ?by Isaac Mwangi
This article forms Chapter 7 of the book, "Poisoned Well of Tradition: Baptism and worthless rituals in the church", published recently and available from Amazon. It provides the main reasons why baptism was never meant to be a ritual using the element of water. A rejection of man-made rituals and traditions based on a gross misunderstanding of the scriptures, the author believes, will lead to more Christ-centred worship in the church.
