Q: Why does ETI exist?
Answer #1: Because Jesus commanded it!
In the book of Mark our Lord commanded us “Go ye into all the world…
” – ETI reaches out to the North American continent and the continent of Africa where people desperately need the Word of God.
Answer #2: Because America, Africa, and the world is inviting us!
America becomes more and more secular every day. A vital relationship with God and the knowledge of His Word is disappearing from the American lifestyle. Africa is struggling against the influence of extremist religions and is calling on God’s people to come and help. The world is lost and desperately seeking an answer. We have that answer – Jesus Christ! As we go, we work alongside American, African, and various other nationals so that they, in turn, teach others. Africa can be deeply impacted by teaching others how to share the Gospel of Christ with their family, friends, co-workers and even strangers on the street.
First – there is NO MEMORIZATION! ETI prepares you with a Biblical step-by-step plan involving a marked pocket soul-winners New Testament. You will learn how to effectively share the Gospel with family, friends, co-workers or those who you may encounter throughout the day, both here and abroad. This is not
a lecture on evangelism, it is hands-on training! Each person receives hands-on experience, which is practical, exciting, and fun! We will answer your questions, and fears, about sharing God’s Word. You will learn how to:
- Open a conversation.
- Evaluate the person’s spiritual condition.
- Present the Gospel.
- Invite Jesus into their lives.
- Lead in prayer.
- Give assurance of salvation.
- Disciple the new believer.
You will have a clear understanding and comfortable use of the tools necessary to witness for Jesus Christ!
We teach at your convenience! Simply contact us (by email, mail or phone) and we will be happy to schedule your training! We are very flexible in working with local churches and organizations.
We come to you – and train you! You will be provided the materials to promote the upcoming training at your church.
ETI training is only four nights, and the last night of the training is the highlight! Every trainee is paired-up with a partner and uses their training to share what they have learned with an unsaved world. Without fail, trainees return from sharing the Gospel filled with “incomprehensible joy” and share testimonies of what the Lord did (Luke
10:17; Psalms 118:23; Psalms 126:5-6).
Also, feel free to contact us and find out when and where the nearest training session will take place, and we will gladly accommodate you! We also offer “condensed-training sessions” for those unable to attend the full four night training, all the necessary training packed into two concentrated short evenings. Why do we do this? We take our Lord’s command seriously. We believe every Christian has been given the divine mandate and command by Jesus Christ to “go into all the world and preach the Gospel”. Even Jesus’ purpose in coming to earth was to “seek and to save that which was lost”, therefore we can do no less. Our desire is to train Christians to become effective, consistent and powerful witnesses for Jesus Christ.How much does the ETI training cost? Simply cover our expenses (transportation, lodging, etc.). Although a love-gift offering is always helpful and appreciated!).
If you come to us, however, the training is absolutely free!
What We Believe
We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired word of God the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. It is our supreme and final authority for faith and practice (II Timothy 3:15-17).We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6. 4; John 4. 24; Romans 8:14-15).
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His Virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory (Isaiah 7.14; John 1:1-16).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, one with the Father and the Son, the indweller of every believer whereby each is scaled unto the day of redemption of the body. His presence in the Christian is the assurance of God to bring the believer into the fullness of the stature of Christ. We believe that the fullness of the Holy Spirit is manifested by the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).
We believe in the existence and operating power of a real and personal evil one called Satan, or Devil, opposed to all righteousness and exalting himself against all that God is and desires (I Peter 5:8-9).
We believe in a literal hell, the place of eternal punishment for those who have not trusted in the shed blood of Jesus Christ (Luke 15.19-31; Matthew 25:46; II Thessalonians. 1:9).
We believe in a literal place called heaven where God’s immediate presence is manifested, where the angels are. and where the redeemed shall ultimately be, from whence Christ descended and ascended again, where He maketh intercession for the saints, and from where He shall come to judge the quick and the dead (Hebrews 12:22-23, John 3:5; II Peter 1:10-11).
We believe that God created man in His own image and in a state of innocence, but that through temptation man willfully transgressed. All mankind is born dead in trespasses and sins, and under condemnation having inherited a corrupt nature (Psalm 51; Romans 5, Ephesians 2:1).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; that He arose from the dead in His glorified body, ascended into heaven, and that as our great High Priest and Advocate, He ever lives to make intercession for us; that all who believe on His name are justified on the basis of grace through faith in Him. The believer is, therefore, eternally secure, kept by the power of God (Acts 16.30 31; Ephesians 1:2-10; Romans 5:8-10; John 3:16-18; I Peter 1:5).
We believe that the regeneration is a divine and instantaneous work of the Holy Spirit whereby God Imparts life to one dead in trespasses and sin (II Corinthians 5:17-20, John 3, Galatians 2:16-20).
We believe that sanctification is a divine and progressive work of the Holy Spirit whereby God, upon the ground of the finished work of Christ on the cross, His present intercessory ministry and His Divine Word, sets the believer apart and works out, in, and through him by means of a submissive will that which is well pleasing to Himself through Jesus Christ. This work culminates in the redemption of the body
(Philippians 2:12-13; Ephesians 5).
We believe that every child of God should demonstrate their separation unto God and from the world system. This separation involves a fruitful, spirit-filled life of obedience to the command of Scripture and the refusal to associate with or become involved in anything that would bring reproach upon the character and work of Christ and His church (II Corinthians 6:14-18, Ephesians 1; Romans 12:1-2).
We believe that the Lord Jesus is coming again to rapture His saints and establish His kingdom. The rapture of His church is imminent (I Thessalonians 4:13-17; John 14:2-3).
We are dedicated to efficiently train and equip believers to be effective witnesses for the LORD Jesus Christ (Proverbs 11:30). We are committed to teach a Biblical, simple, practical and proven plan to equip Christians, reach a lost and dying world, and to bring hope and life through the saving power of Jesus Christ. Our focus is building the Kingdom of God by training Christians to be effective witnesses for Jesus Christ.
We are an evangelistic training school dedicated to work with churches, Sunday Schools, small groups, retreats, seminars, conferences, Christian schools and colleges, or individuals to better equip each to share the Gospel. We are committed to excellence, compassion, integrity, and accountability under our Lord’s supervision. Our goal is to clearly proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ using encouragement, a plan, and the Word of God (Hebrews 4:12). We are committed to help overcome the fears that plague so many believers, so that they may become effective witnesses for Jesus. Lastly, we are dedicated to helping mobilize and build leadership in churches, to train others to reach their communities, and to provide growth in the church with new believers.
It is our hope and prayer that you will experience the incredible joy of seeing friends, neighbors, and loved ones come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and that ETI’s training will remain a consistent part of your life until we see Him face to face!
