About "The Word is My Life" Training Ministry

Dr Iris

I have found my life in Christ and am passionate about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love when Jesus told Peter that He had prayed for him. Jesus also instructed Peter that as he found his way forward in Christ, he was to strengthen others (Luke 22:32).

The call of this ministry is to help believers flourish in their relationship with Christ. As that relationship prospers, your relationship with others will also.

You have a blueprint for greatness within you! For this blueprint to become reality, you’ll need God’s eternal Word – the Bible. This ministry will help you find the answers, insight, and direction you need to achieve God’s plans for you! Let’s move forward together…

Ministry Beliefs

“The Word is My Life” Training Ministry is founded upon the Word of God. The belief system undergirding this ministry is the following: God, our Creator, exists from everlasting to everlasting (Psalm 90:2). He loves His creation and advances His Kingdom through the plans He has for our lives (Jeremiah 29:11).  

I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He shed His blood – ultimately offering up His life – to free us from the curse of sin (John 3:16). Not only is the power of sin broken in the life of the believer, but we are free to live a new life in Christ (1 Cor. 15:22). For those who receive Jesus Christ as Savior, He comes to dwell within us (Colossians 1:27), care for us lovingly as our Shepherd (Psalm 23:1), and minister to our souls (1 Peter 2:25).

Jesus has provided us a comforter – the Holy Spirit of God – who teaches us, guides us into truth, and lights the path for our lives (John 16:13; John 14:15-18).

As believers, we are the body of Christ. We join God in the great work He has ordained for the ages. As we fulfill our life’s call – the purpose for which we were created – the Kingdom of God advances. Just as Jesus said, “The Kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17).

Jesus declared these Words as His purpose in Luke 4:18-19: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the Lord’s favor has come.” This Word also serves as my life’s mandate, and I pray it is also yours. May God’s Kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven!
