Personal Theology:
As a servant of the Most-High God, I’ve made it my goal to share all that the Lord has allowed me to see and experience. I believe that through sharing my experiences, many others will also recognize the Sovereign Power of our Lord and God, El-Shaddai.

I understand, the book of Mark, where we are told to “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature”, and in the book of Romans, where the question is asked, “ shall they hear without a preacher?” But I am convinced that God did not just mean for man to preach to His people, but that His people be taught according to His Word.

God has shown me that the foundation of my ministry is found in the book of Matthew, the 28th Chapter, verses 19 and 20: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you...” For what Jesus taught His disciples were the very principles that bring pleasure to God, His and our heavenly Father.

For me, its this passage of scripture that teaches us not only how to live according to the will of God, but how Jesus Himself, taught His disciples to go forth and teach others, making disciples so that they too could spread and share the all-powerful Word of God.
