Caribbean Disciple Featured in Local Newspaper for Amazing Heart to Serve

Alex Butterfield, one of only 3 disciples in our fellowship in Bermuda, was recently featured in local media for his amazing heart to serve.

Although Alex, a full-time banker, is the only male member of the church in Bermuda, he was looking for more ways to serve his community this year, and together with his wife Alanna came up with a plan to serve 30 charities by his 30th birthday on November 10th.

As he set about his noble goal, he caught the attention of the local newspapers.  Read the Bermuda Royal Gazette article here...

Worldwide Update from the Rocky Mountain School of Ministry and Theology

February 2017

This has been a great year so far for our Rocky Mountain School of Ministry and Theology (www.rmsmt.org). Last year (January 2016) we expanded our outreach globally with the initiation of our online program to train ICOC students and staff around the world. Since beginning our first class in September 2015 with seven students, our student population (not counting auditors) has now grown over 500% to 37 students. Of the 37 students we now have enrolled in the school 16 are first world students and 21 are third world students. We now have students from India, Nigeria, Kenya, the UK, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, Granada, Bangladesh, as well as the USA. Many of these (especially those in the third world) are evangelists, church staff members, and even HOPE worldwide workers.

Is Muhammad Prophesied in the Bible?

I watched a video by a Muslim apologist. He claims that the Comforter mentioned in John 14 is Muhammad, and that he is also mentioned in Song of Solomon 5. How should I respond? -- David

The short answer: the Comforter to come in John is the Spirit, not the prophet Muhammad. This is clear when we read the passage in its entirety -- to understand it in context. Anyone can pluck out a few words that seem to relate to one subject, while in fact they have nothing to do with it. So let's zero in on the passage in question. At the end of his ministry, several years of working with his disciples, Jesus said:

“All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Advocate [or Counselor: Greek paráklētos], the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you" (John 14:25-26).
