Proper Knowledge Ministries is a non-denominational Christian church organization, recognized by the IRS as a legal 501c(3) non-profit entity, founded on the principles and teachings of the Holy Bible.
We aim to make disciples of all nations as commanded by Jesus Christ by teaching the uncompromised Word of God to develop share and encourage saving faith. Our ministry works to accomplish this mission by producing various forms of Bible-teaching resources such as daily devotionals, books, study guides, commentaries, videos, and other teaching aids to equip other churches, ministry leaders, schools, and families with tools that enable Christians to understand and obey the Bible.
We distribute these resources through our website, Biblical counseling, and other avenues the Lord has provided, including small group meetings and other Bible studies we conduct around Southern California throughout the week.
WHAT DOES THE LOGO MEAN?
Our emphasis and motive is to teach the Bible in the manner that we believe God wants it to be taught - with an emphasis on Him. For this reason we have adopted a fundamental principle by which we conduct all of our ministry:
His Word – His Purpose – His Promise.
We feel that each verse and historical reference exists in the Bible in order to reveal the character, attributes, and eternally existing and self-sustaining qualities of God, through the person of Jesus the Christ - God in flesh. Therefore, we have taken the Hebrew word for "son" and made it the beginning letter of our ministry name. The symbol that resembles the English letter "P" is actually the Hebrew word "ben," translating into English "son." We added the shape of the sun coming out of the "P" to symbolize the light and glory that comes from the Son of God. We decided to shape the sun silhouette to also resemble a crown of thorns, while also making the point of the "P" angled at the bottom so that the stem resembles a nail from which a drop of blood drips.
We have taken the quintessential icons that have historically been identified with Jesus Christ, His works, and the fulfillment of His Messianic identity, and rolled them into one statement that comes before the name of our own ministry. In this we hope to communicate that Jesus is not just the emphasis of what we do, but also the emphasis of what we all should be doing. Generally, “proper knowledge” is the knowledge that comes from the Word of God. Jesus is the means by which we receive that revelation.
Statement of Faith
WHAT WE BELIEVE - HOW WE TEACH
Proper Knowledge Ministries has the supreme desire to know Christ and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not a denominational church or ministry, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only to their over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.
We believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ's Agape love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
We believe worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the lending of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
We believe worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give great place to music in our worship.
We believe worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped.
We believe worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshiping Him.
We believe in all the basic doctrines of historic Christianity, especially the Biblical emphasis of our salvation being Jewish in nature so that our faith is on account of God’s faithful work through the children of Israel, which He never has, and never will cast away.
We believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments are the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We believe that God is eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that God is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things.
We believe in the personal, visible, and pre-millennial second coming of Jesus Christ to the earth. He will return with His saints and set up a kingdom of which there will be no end.
We believe that upon Jesus’ 2nd Coming, He will fulfill all of His eternally unconditional promises to His people through the conduit of the children of Israel as promised to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and David.
After Jesus ascended to Heaven, He poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today.
