and multi-cultural and it’s Academic Curriculum have proven to be sound biblically, non-threatening who's
doctrinal beliefs are maintain the counsel of God as proven in its Hermeneutic course, which integrates into
other key courses. Bethesda's call is to help the Body of Christ look intently at the Five-Fold Ministry; the
Soul/Temperaments (mind, will, emotions); Gifts and Callings and how they are utilized in all vocations,
according to God’s paradigm.
Isa 48:3 I have declared the former things from of old; yea, they went forth out of my mouth,
and I showed them: suddenly I did them, and they came to pass.
Yes we all realize that these are hard times, but these are also the greatest time for reap the harvest. Do we
have possess in our churches and ministries men and women prepared (laborers) to assist with preparing the
Body of Christ to do their work in the ministry. We ensure that when you or your selected leadership or even
congregation comes away from Bethesda they know:
THE POWER OF GOD 1Co 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
1Co 12:5 And there are diversities of ministrations, and the same Lord.
1Co 12:6 And there are diversities of workings, but the same God, who worketh all things in all.
1Co 12:7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit to profit withal.
THE OFFICERS OF GOD - THE FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY
Eph 4:11 And he gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors
Eph 4:12 for the perfecting of the saints, unto the work of ministering, unto the building up of the body of Christ:
THE MINISTRY WORKERS (all have at least one)
1Co 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, then
miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, divers kinds of tongues.
UNDERSTANDING OUR TEMPERAMENT/SOUL (Mind, Will and Emotions), human behavior—biblically. That
of the Melancholy, Sanguine, Choleric, Supine, Phlegmatic in all 3 areas of the Soul with it’s strengths,
weaknesses and needs, that we may possess what the scripture state.
Deut. 6:5 and thou shalt love Jehovah thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
Psalms 139:13 For thou didst form my inward parts: Thou didst cover me in my mother's womb.
