What Is The Trinity?

The Trinity is a fundamental doctrine on which the bible is based. Grasping it is important for every believer as it greatly shapes our view of who God is.

Exorcism in the African Church is incredibly widespread. But we have to ask ourselves is deliverance ministry really the Church’s main purpose?

Exorcism In The African Church

The calling of the Church – first and foremost – is to preach the gospel, not to chase demons.

“Discernment is extremely important when it comes to the subject of deliverance or exorcism.”

“There are many people who will claim that God has called them and given them special power to conduct the ministry of deliverance. But not everybody who claims to be a messenger of God actually is. And so as believers we must test all things, to hold fast to that which is good and to abstain from every appearance of evil.”
