of God’s will as a foundation for ministry.

following of God’s ways as a philosophy of ministry.
3. Action: We apply the knowledge of God’s Word and the understanding of God’s plan in the
functioning of God’s church to lead an army for evangelism, discipleship, and missions.
Living Faith Bible Institute functions to impart to students distinctives that are unique to the
spiritual DNA of our family of churches.
