Description


Brother Peace Ndalama had been serving the Lord in Malawi for many years. He helped to establish several churches in urban and rural areas of the country. The Lord called him and his family to serve as missionaries in the United States. One day the Lord reminded him of the struggles he used to face while doing ministry in his home country i.e. Lack of crusade equipment, transportation, shortage of discipleship materials, poverty of Christian converts living in the rural areas, poor or no church infrastructures and many more. After prayer, he felt led to establish a Resource Centre in Malawi to combat some of these issues which are still being faced by the local churches there. Our vision is to establish a non-denominational Christian Resource Centre in Malawi to serve as (1) a Discipleship Centre, (2) a Charity Centre. As a Discipleship Centre, the Centre would make available every resource needed for effective Christian ministry. It will have the following facilities: a Public Christian Library, Missionary Dormitory, offices, a multipurpose hall, conference room, classrooms for training of Christians in discipleship, prayer and counseling room, cafeteria and media room. As a Charity Centre, the Centre will have a Warehouse for storage of various relief items. These items will be distributed freely to churches and organizations working with vulnerable groups like orphans, HIV/AIDs affected and infected families, hospitals, and many more. We are a 501 (c) 3 tax exempt organization.

Organizational Statement of Faith


INSPIRATION OF THE SCRIPTURES. We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments (2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1: 19-2 1). GOD. We believe in the one God revealed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost (Matthew 3:16,17; 28:29; John 17). MAN. We believe that man, in his natural state, is a sinner, lost, undone, without hope, and without God (Romans 3:19-23; Galatians 3:22; Ephesians 2:1,2,12). DIVINITY AND HUMANITY OF CHRIST JESUS. We believe that Jesus is God come in the flesh and that He is both divine and human (Luke 1:26-38; John 14:1-3; Acts 2:36, 3:14,15; Philippians 2:5-12). BLOOD ATONEMENT. We believe in the saving power of the Blood of Jesus and His imputed righteousness (Acts 4:12; Romans 4:1-9, 5: 1-11; Eph. 1:3-15). BODILY RESURRECTION. We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ (Luke 24:39-43; John 20:24-29). ASCENSION. We believe that Christ Jesus ascended to the Father and is presently engaged in building Heaven and interceding for the saints (John 14:1-6; Romans 8:34). SECOND COMING. We believe in the visible, bodily return of Christ Jesus to this earth and to rapture His Church (Bride) and judge the world (Acts 1: 10, 11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; James 5:8; Revelation 1:7). (It is not necessary that we all believe alike concerning whether He is coming before, during or after the Great Tribulation.) SALVATION. We believe that the terms of salvation are repentance toward God for sin, and a personal, heartfelt faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, which results in regeneration of the person. This salvation is entirely by the Grace of our Lord and not of works. Works are excluded except as FRUIT of salvation (Acts 3:19,20; Romans 4:1-5, 5: 1; Ephesians 2:8-10). LOCAL CHURCH. We believe the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ as a body of believers who have been baptized in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost; who are under recognized, delegated authorities; and who assemble to worship, carry forth the Great Commission, and minister as the Holy Ghost leads (Matthew 16:18;28:19,20; Acts 2:20-28, 40 ‚¬47, Ephesians 5:22-32; 1 Timothy 3:15). ORDINANCES. We believe that the two ordinances of the Church are Water Baptism and the Lord's Supper. WATER BAPTISM. Immersion in water in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost (Matthew 3:15-16, 28:19-20; Acts 8:38; Romans 6:1-4). A symbol of identification with Jesus Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. LORD'S SUPPER. A memorial of the death, resurrection and Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 22:13-20). SEPARATED LIFE. We believe that believers should seek, as early disciples did, to practice the separated life from the world and unto Christ and to set standards of conduct which shall exalt our; Lord and His Church (Romans 12:1-3; 2 Corinthians 6:17; Galatians 6:14; Ephesians 5:11; Colossians 3:17). HEAVEN AND HELL. We believe the Scriptures clearly set forth the doctrines of eternal punishment for the lost and eternal bliss and service for the saved - Hell for the unsaved and Heaven for the saved (Matthew 25:34, 41, 46; Luke 19:19-3 1; John 14:1-3; Revelation 20: 11-15). HOLY SPIRIT. We believe the Holy Spirit to be the third person of the Trinity whose purpose in the redemption of man is to convict men of sin, regenerate the repentant believer, guide the believer into ALL truth, indwell and give gifts to believers as He wills, that they may minister as Christ would to men. We believe that the manifestations of the Holy Spirit recorded in I Corinthians 12:8-11 shall operate in present-day churches which yield to the Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 11: 13; John 7:37-39, 14:16,17, 16:7-14; Acts 2:39-48). PRIESTHOOD OF BELIEVERS. We believe that each believer is a priest of the Lord (Revelation 1:6) and has direct access to the Father through the Lord Jesus Christ. Each person must believe for himself, be baptized for himself, obey for himself, and answer to his Creator for himself.
