Paul encourages us to study to show ourselves approved unto God in 2 Timothy 2:15. Paul shows us a tremendous example of balance throughout his ministry. He is a man fully committed to the Word of God. Paul lived as a student of the word all throughout his life. He was also a man committed to demonstration of the Word of God through signs, wonders, and miracles. “For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.” I Thessalonians 1:5. Paul’s life was a balance of emphasis on the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Bethesda Bible College will endeavor to follow this example. We want our students to be students of God’s Word. We want to study the scriptures that will prepare us for ministry. Bethesda will also be committed to the power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit. There is no replacement for the power of God. We must have His anointing and power in our ministries. Today is the greatest opportunity for ministry in history. The harvest is the end of the age.
We will be committed to preparing you for this great work. Preparation for ministry cannot be overestimated. Preparation is essential. Thanks for considering Bethesda Bible College. I am looking forward to seeing you in some of the classes.
