Church of God, New World Ministries

Quarterly Letter - March 2018

March 2018
 
Greetings Everyone,
 
It is well known that when Christ began His Church on Pentecost 31 A.D. He commissioned the Church to “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). And, God’s true Church has been doing that ever since, even to this very day.
 
But, He did not stop there. After His death, burial and resurrection, Jesus met some of His disciples by the sea of Tiberias. While dining with them He said to Peter, “Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these” (John 21:15)? Peter responded, “Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee” (vs 15). Christ responded, “Feed my lambs” (vs 15). Twice more Christ asked Peter the same question and each time He responded to Peter’s answer, “Feed my sheep” (vs 16-17).
 
Peter never forgot Christ’s admonishment as demonstrated in his epistle to “The elders which are among you…” (I Peter 5:1). He encouraged the elders to “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock” (I Peter 5:2-3).
 
Paul also understood Christ’s admonishment as he wrote to the Church in Ephesus, “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ…” (the Church) (Eph. 4:11-12).
 
The Church of God New World Ministries has fully understood Christ’s twofold commission to His Church; and we have tried to fulfill those commissions since our inception. True Christians are admonished to “grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). They are encouraged to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15).
 
With this in mind, I wanted to make our readers aware of the RESOURCES we have available to help you grow in grace and knowledge and to rightly divide the word of truth. If you have access to our website cognwm.org, we encourage you to visit and explore the variety of materials found there.
 
Under the RESOURCES title at the top of the website you will find a variety of materials in a drop down window. Simply run your mouse across the RESOURCES topic. We have over 1,000 articles on virtually any Biblical subject available, audio sermons, video sermons, a Bible Correspondence Course, Bible questions and answers, difficult scriptures explained, God’s Holy Days explained, personal study aids, and a Traditional Christian Doctrine mini-study course.
 
Visit our FREE MATERIALS section where you can order DVD sermon messages on many subjects. For those who request it, we send out a DVD every three weeks with recent sermon messages from the ministry of the Church of God New World Ministries.

Some have asked if they may duplicate some of our materials and use them in their church services. Absolutely! You may use any of our materials as long as you do not change the contents of the materials. We do send out some materials periodically upon request. Among these materials are The Mini-Correspondence Course, Traditional Christian Doctrine Course, God’s Master Plan Mini-series, tri-weekly DVD’s, Story of the Bible series, and specific DVD sermons from our FREE MATERIALS section. Our materials are all FREE.
 
The Church of God New World Ministries is supported by the tithes and offerings of members and co-workers. We never request money or solicit in any way. God has always provided our needs and will continue to do so, as long as we obey Him.
 
As I always do in these letters, I thank those of you who contribute to support this Work. You have come to understand that the two great commissions to His Church cannot be done without financial support. We will continue to “preach the gospel to all the world” and “feed the flock” as long as God provides the means.
 
 
Sincerely,
George Trent
