The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
Proverbs 11:30

Discipleship

Is a necessary responsibility of every born-again Christian. In Matthew 28:19-20 discipleship is commanded. It is shown by our Lord Jesus when he called out 12 disciples and taught them and instructed them for approximately 3 years. Representatives of IGM and pastors are encouraged to share with others the hope of eternal life and to demonstrate the Christ life before those they have a relationship. It is so significant in following the great commission that those who know Christ are being instructed in everything pertaining to Christ and His work on the world’s behalf.

Education

Like discipleship is a continual process in the Christian life. Someone has said, “If you stop growing, you will start dying.” National pastors are encouraged to establish means of training their people to learn all they can for ministry. Some have established Bible Schools, day schools for children of all ages, orphanages, and in everything, the Lord Jesus is to be the focus.

Encouragement

“Any man can learn by his own mistakes, but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others.” Otto von Bismarck “To live by the yard is hard, but to live by the inch is a cinch!” John Bytheway “You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.” Victor Hugo “Two things in preaching: lose the preacher and lose self.” Thomas K. Beecher “You may exchange a few moments of pleasure for a lifetime of regret!” Tom Crowe “Providence is the hand of God in the glove of history!” Bill Bradley “God doesn’t call the equipped. He equips the called.” Rick Yancey “You steer where you stare.” Lysa TerKeurst “The Titanic was built by professionals, the ark, by amateurs.” Elizabeth May “Conversion is a complete surrender to Jesus. It’s a willingness to do what he wants you to do.” Billy Sunday “Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.” Billy Graham “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” Jim Elliott “Leave it all in the Hands that were wounded for you.” Elisabeth Elliott
