A pastor called A.L.and told him this story.
“I asked everyone to study through the first lesson on New Creation Image during the week and then I taught it on Sunday morning. People were excited!
“The people who couldn’t be there Sunday mornings asked, ‘What about us?’ They also began to study the lessons during the week, and Sunday evenings we have a lively discussion on that subject.
“My church has come alive!
“Everyone is involved!
“Training believers to do the works of Jesus has become our priority!”
Since 1983, the Gill’s vision has been to provide necessary tools for both the teacher and the student for Training Centers, Bible Classes, and Self Bible Study. They believe that a proper knowledge of the Word will bring believers into living in the supernatural Kingdom of God and operating in the power of the Holy Spirit. They believe every local church should be an “Kingdom, Training Center.” They have spent over fifty years learning, writing, teaching, and finally recording this material in Bible Training Centers around the world. Now their manuals, books, video and audio teachings are available through this website.
The apostle Paul wrote, He Himself (Jesus) gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all cometo the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. – Ephesians 4:11-13
Dr. A.L. Gill, while working with Dr. John Osteen at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, was the Founding Director of Lakewood Bible Institute. Then God told he and his wife, Joyce, to resign from their staff positions at Lakewood Church (now the largest church in the United States) and take this training to the world!
They were struck with the apostle Paul’s success as he taught for two years in the school in Ephesus (Acts, chapter 19). It resulted in “All who dwelt in Asia hearing the gospel both Jew and Greek”. Their question became, What did Paul teach in that first School that resulted in one-hundred percent saturation evangelism of a whole province?
In selecting the subjects that should be taught, the Gill’s realized the teaching needed to be Word-Based, Jesus-Centered, Faith-Filled, practical and taught in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Through many years of extensive research and writing, ten foundational courses have been completed. Translations of the manuals are now available in over twenty languages. These teachings through the manuals, video and audio are being used to equip a mighty army of many nations and languages of the world. Now through the multiplication of the Internet, these practical, life-changing teachings are expanding to many more believers, schools, and nations.
Their passion has been to provide the leadership and tools that are now being used in over 140 nations to equip believers around the world to operate in the supernatural power of God and to reach their own nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
