"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    For the Cause of Reform in Kenya


    Back in March I wrote, "Pastor Elly Achok Olare (Mumias, Kenya, Africa) has become a very precious friend of mine in recent months. He and I share a very similar background in that we both were at one time pastors in the word of faith movement."

    You can read an article he wrote at the Gospel Coalition website entitled, "How God Saved Me from the Prosperity Gospel".

    Pastor Elly had read my book "Twelve What Abouts" and wrote to me asking for permission to photocopy the book to hand out to his students. I said that with God's help, I think we (King's Church, Peoria) can do better than that.

    This afternoon I had the joy of seeing photos of the 50 books we had sent to his ministry in Kenya now safely in the hands of Pastor Elly. He is more than delighted. He wrote, "My dearest brother, my friend and Co worker in the battle for souls, I have this day received with exceeding gladness the package of books you sent. It's a blessing beyond words and thank you a million times."

    Many of the students Pastor Elly teaches have a Pentecostal/Word of Faith background and now, through Pastor Elly's ministry, five Reformed Churches have recently been planted in neighboring towns and cities in Kenya. Praise the Lord.

    Lets pray for our brother and his ministry and may God use the books in these students' hands to drive many to God and His word, the true gospel of Christ and the biblical doctrines of grace.

    Pour out Your Spirit O Lord and light fires in the hearts of many - for Your name, and for Your glory alone.

    Hi. We are looking for a good church community with which to partner in Kenya. Having been on the ground, we are alarmed at the often lax attitude taken to the Word of God within the churches. We are a from a small but wholly bible centered reformed church in Wales UK. We are pursuing a calling that the Lord has laid on our hearts in Njoro Nakuru County Kenya. We want to have a pastor on the board who is firmly reformed and of sound doctrine... hence I found you. I would love to know if you have any churches that you know of in the area that would fit the bill

    Blessings, in His service.
