The School of Disciples which started in 1985 is co-ordinated by the Christ the Redeemer’s Ministries, an Evangelical arm of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. It is a School where Christians of all denominations learn how to be a true and genuine Disciples of Jesus Christ, how to study to show oneself approved unto God
The Church has always been engaged in Spiritual warfare right from her inception. And it has always been battles of life and death. The enemy has always devised various instruments and means of battle. But the Church has always triumphed because in her ranks are the duplicates of Jesus Christ the original Victor. These are His disciple’s men who faithfully endured hardness and who were ever-ready to earnestly contend for their faith even at the risk of their lives.
The enemy however has never given up. In fact the Bible says he is now “having great wrath because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Revelation 12:12).That is why the battle is getting fiercer these days, and that is why the Lord commanded His disciples to go and reproduce other like them-duplicates of Christ. The victory and survival of the Church and all her members depend on their availability. It is thus for this purpose of their reproduction that by the leading of the Holy Spirit; this school of Disciples is established.
- To produce disciples who would do the works of Jesus
- To train dynamic soldiers of the cross for these end times warfare.
- To equip faithful men who will in turn teach others
- To impact basic teaching on every area of Christian Living and Service.
