Our Lord builds His Church, We Participate.

Jesus said, “I will build my church and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”  His Church is built by Him, not man.

He goes on to say, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”  Matt 16 :18-19.  He invites us to participate in His work of building His Church.  What a privilege to be allowed to participate, what a shame if we only become observers.

The below pictures are of 5 congregations that will be highlighted.  They were started by leaders after they attended our Bible Institute.  They all started in houses but have outgrown them.  

The church’s name is Faith Miracle Church.  It was started and is led by former students of our Bible Institute. The walls and floor are dirt, the roof thatched. Wordsower disciples assisted in building it.

The Faith Deliverance Fellowship was also started and is led by former students of our Bible Institute. Their building is still under construction.The roof has tarp and some metal. This week Wordsower disciples will finish the metal roof with them.

The Evangelical Courage Free congregation has out grown the house and has moved into the front yard.  They are now looking for a place to build their worship center.  Again, this fellowship was started and is led by former students of our Bible Institute.

Former Bible Institute students out grew their home church so they are building this structure in Melvin’s front yard. Wordsower disciples are assisting with the construction.


Nayanford George has graduated from our school and is on our board.  He and others started Faith United Christian Church.  They are working on starting other house gatherings they hope will also grow into churches.

Thompson and Teressa Morris, are Wordsower trained disciples, they started a church in their home.  They decided to put this addition on their house when the congregation no longer fit in their house. 

All those who have started these churches are Wordsower Liberia field leaders.  They are not satisfied!! They have been fruitful in their Jerusalem and are going into remote villages to start more churches.
“This is what the kingdom of God is like.  A man scatters seed on the ground.  Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how.  All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.” Mk 4:26-29

“He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.” Lk 10:2-3.  We are the workers.  We pray for more workers.  We, His Church, are commanded to participate.  Join us, participate with us, you are invited.  Don’t be an observer be a participant.

Our vison is a healthy church in every village of Liberia.  This is what we did in March:
  • We went on 25 missions to 35 towns/villages.
  • Showed the Jesus film twice.
  • Distributed 490 water filters to families in remote villages.  We always share the Gospel on these water filter missions.
  • Did 405 water filter follow-up visits to homes.
  • Had 19 dental patients.  Pulling 29 teeth.  We have the only dentist for 5 counties.
  • Printed 50,000 pages of teaching material for our Bible school, evangelism, pastoral training and discipleship.
  • We have a one hour radio teaching each morning on our local radio station.
  • Sold and gave out Bibles.  We have the only Bible book store in 6 counties.
