What We Do

There are about 17 thousand atheists in Liberia and the surrounding nations in West Africa. These people have rejected religion and turn away from God. Time is running out and they need to be saved. These peoples are pleasure seekers, they are caught in materialism, but we want to point them to Jesus Christ – who is the hope of mankind.
EVANGELISM – We start by praying for the people for whom God wants the gospel shared. We design intentional opportunities for the team to share the gospel in the context of the small group. Personal evangelism is effective and can be successful when we are walking in the Spirit. Sharing our testimonies with unbelievers in love is powerful. This world is messy and needs Jesus. It is our responsibility to point lost souls to the cross. As we all know, evangelism starts and ends with the Holy Trinity.
DISCIPLESHIP – Christ told His disciples to make disciples. Disciple-making is hard work because it takes time and involves personal attention. Who is a disciple? A disciple is someone who is a learner and fully following Christ’s footsteps. Paul gives us a good discipleship method as seen in 2 Timothy 2:2, “And what you heard me say in the presence of many witnesses, entrust to faithful people who will be competent to teach others as well.” A disciple of Jesus is one who is learning and living daily for God’s glory by making disciples for Jesus.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH – We take our approach from 1 Thessalonians 2:8 which says: “We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.” You have to love the people intently and share your life with them. In most communities we engage in one to one conversation with both believers and non-believers. We are partnering with rural pastors who are more familiar with the people. Rural pastors are those living outside of the city. Sometimes they haven’t seen the city or have little or no contact outside of their villages or communities. Many of these pastors and leaders that are living five or more hours walking distance from the road feel abandoned or detached from those living in the city. Standing with them to reach the communities sends a powerful message that we are here for you and with you to carry out God’s plans for your communities.
LEADERSHIP EMPOWERMENT– If you are going to have major impact in the lives of rural pastors or among the indigenous it is essential for you to empower them. Developing the minds will make it much easier for the people to rise over poverty and poor health. Most of the communities lack sufficient food, good drinking water, and basic social needs. Transforming the lives of these leaders can turn the light of the gospel of Christ on and bring hope to the communities.
THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION– One of the greatest needs in Africa is education. Most of the pastors have no theological education and their churches are dying. To multiply spiritual leaders and healthy churches we founded GTBS. “Grace and Truth Bible School without wall” doesn’t have structure building. We are moving from county to county meeting the pastors and leaders where they are located, training city pastors and rural pastors through our Bible Schools. We also have four institutions of training: Dr. Stephen Olford Legacy Institute, Dr. John Piper Mission Institute, Dr. Kerwin B. Lee Leadership Institute, and Grace and Truth Apologetics Institute. The goal is not just in accumulation of information, but changed lives of leaders reaching other leader
MINI CRUSADE– Traveling from community to community and having an open air crusade with the intention of reaching lost souls for Christ. Sharing the Gospel of Christ with the power of the Holy Spirit and leaving the result in the hands of God to make dead men alive.
CHURCH PLANTING – Church Planting is very essential if we are going to reach the nations for Christ. It takes very little to plant a house church or rural community church. Through evangelism and disciples making disciples we can plant solid biblical churches and empower them to reproduce churches. Healthy churches are established through mobilizing indigenous pastors and churches by equipping them biblically. When disciples make disciples who make disciples we capture the model of church planting found in the book of Acts.
