THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK - About Us
To know the only true God, honor and obey Him, and make Him known.
The Koran refers to Christians and Jews as "The People of the Book". We are very content to be identified as followers of 'Isa al-Masih (Jesus the Messiah) who base our life on the Word of God.
The fundamental components of our ministry:
•The focus is to bring glory to God alone.
•The foundation is the sufficiency and authority of the Scriptures alone.
•Salvation is accomplished by the work of Jesus Christ alone, through God's grace alone.
•Justification is by faith alone in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
•Our primary mission is the salvation of all people through clearly communicating the Gospel.
•Our personal responsibility is to spend time with God every day in the Word and prayer, living in obedience to Him and fulfilling our role in the Body of Christ.
The People of the Book has two ministry websites:
One, in Spanish, is directed toward Christians to provide them with quality, free materials for evangelism, discipleship, leadership training, and family/marriage issues (LosNavegantes.net). This Christian site has a small section in English (plsal.org).
The other site is also in Spanish, but is directed toward Muslims to present to them the message of 'Isa, from the Word of God. The Muslim site will also be helpful for anyone who is ministering to Muslims in Spanish, or anyone desiring to know more about contextualized ministry to Muslims. (LaGenteDelLibro.org). Our use of the word "contexualized ministry" does not mean that we want to modify the message of the Gospel to make it more palatable to the hearer. It means that we are committed to never living in a way that could become an obstacle to anyone's hearing and understanding the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a ministry characterized by personal sacrifice, not by compromise. It is a ministry that presents a clear Gospel of repentance and faith.
