How to Start a Work for the Lord

I want to begin by saying the title “How to Start a Work for the Lord” reflects man’s human nature and 1500 plus years of religious indoctrination. The truth is we are chosen to serve him before we are in our mother’s womb. How does the Lord know we will be faithful and have a heart towards Him? I don’t know except He is God and Creator and only He really knows His creation. The idea of working for the Lord is used so...

Why I am at War with Charismatic Religion by Steve Crosby

Does Five Fold Ministry Exist Today?

I’m often asked: “Frank, do you believe in ‘the five-fold ministry’? And do you believe that God is restoring it today?” In this post, I will attempt to answer that question.

Are we talking about the two-hundred-year old doctrine of the restoration of “the five-fold ministry?” Or are we...
