Welcome to Dominion-Life Institute where you will be equipped to do the work of the ministry. Ephesians 4: 11-14 (ISV) states:
"And it is he who gifted some to be apostles, others to be prophets, others to be evangelists, and still others to be pastors and teachers, 12 to perfect the saints, to do the work of ministry, and to build up the body of Christ 13 until all of us are united in the faith and in the full knowledge of God's Son, and until we attain mature adulthood and the full standard of development in Christ. 14 Then we will no longer be little children, tossed like waves and blown about by every wind of doctrine, by people's trickery, or by clever strategies that would lead us astray."
As the Lord fully restores these ministry gifts back to His Church, the Saints can now be equipped to do the “work of the ministry”. This raises the question, “What is the work of the ministry?” If we cannot answer this question accurately, we are doomed to failure in our attempt to fully equip the Church.
First, let me tell you what it the “work of the ministry” is not:
- It is not merely striving to stand behind a pulpit and preach.
- It is not fighting for a post in a local church.
- It is not going to three years of Bible school and getting a decree to qualify you to become a minister.
- It is not quitting your job and going "full-time" in the ministry or Church.
In simple terms, the "work of the ministry" is reconciling the world back to God. According to 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 (ISV):
"All of this comes from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. For in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself by not counting their sins against them, and he has committed to us the message of reconciliation."
Dominion-Life Institute has been established to provide instruction and resources to the Body of Christ so that the Saints can be equipped to impact the nations for the Kingdom of God. .
It is our prayer that you will be impacted as you journey through our site, and encouraged as you prepare to attend one of our courses.
