“And what things you heard from me through many witnesses, commit these things to faithful men, such as will be competent also to teach others.” 2 Timothy 2:2
This is the mission of COGMA.
Paul’s instruction to Timothy and thus to all of us who would hold a place of leadership in the church that Jesus built is to not only study His word for our own benefit, but also to teach, to commit to other faithful brethren who are competent to teach others. Each of us in Christ are called to be disciples and to disciple and therefore leaders. Leaders never “push” but as the word suggest; they LEAD.
Our purpose is not to indoctrinate, but to stir each student to become eager and diligent in their study of the Word of God. Man’s wisdom will do nothing for us but make more and more man-made religious institutions that have no biblical foundation.
What the Church of God Mission Academy will do for you, is equip you with the tools and the confidence to study the Word and receive the Revelation from God Himself. We will do so by providing a curriculum in the form of Workbooks, and also importantly you will have a mentor, a brother or sister, who will help guide through the content and also the application of God’s Word in life.
I am reminded of the words of Paul in the book of Galatians where he said that “the gospel he preached was not according to man, but that he was taught by the Revelation of Jesus Christ.” That is what we desire for you and then for you to replicate that in others. It is the revelation of God that transforms us “unto a perfect a man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”
May our God bless each one of you and above all His will and purpose be fulfilled in you.
Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand. 2 Corinthians 1:24
